The JSMA’s fourth “Common Seeing” exhibition supports the UO’s 2019-20 “Common Reading” of Under the Feet of Jesus by Helena Maria Viramontes. In the book, the resilient protagonist,13-year-old Estrella, works in the hot California grape fields while navigating the realities of first love, financial struggle, family separation, and illness. For more information about the “Common Reading,” including upcoming university events, visit commonreading.uoregon.edu. Two special loans from the Smithsonian American Art Museum (SAAM) by artists Emanuel Martinez and Domingo Ulloa anchor the exhibition. Martinez created Farm Workers’ Altar (1967) for the Catholic Mass held in Delano, California, at which labor activist César Chávez broke his twenty five-day fast in 1968. Ulloa, “The Father of Chicano Art,” painted Braceros (1960) after visiting a labor camp in Holtville, California. From 1942 through 1964, the U.S. government invited agricultural workers from Mexico for limited-duration assignments to relieve the worker shortage caused by World War II. Ulloa presented a sobering view of the reality of life for these braceros (from the Spanish for “one who works using his arms,” implying manual labor), who experienced poor working conditions, crowded living quarters, and other challenges while employed in the United States. These special loans provide historical and cultural touchstones for Viramontes’s 1995 novel and contemporary works from the JSMA’s permanent collection, including recent acquisitions by Ester Hernández, Victor Maldonado, and Lilliam Nieves.
Resistance as Power: A Curatorial Response to Under the Feet of Jesus is one in a series of American art exhibitions created through a multi-year, multi-institutional partnership formed by the Smithsonian American Art Museum as part of the Art Bridges + Terra Foundation Initiative.

Racing to Change chronicles the civil rights movement in Eugene, Oregon, during the 1960s and 1970s—a time of great upheaval, conflict, and celebration as new voices clashed with traditional organizations of power. Co-developed by the Museum of Natural and Cultural History and Oregon Black Pioneers, the exhibit illuminates legacies of racism and the unceasing efforts of Oregon's Black communities to bring about change.
Through photographs, recorded interviews, and historical archives, Racing to Change explores how racist policies and attitudes created a pressing need for bold civil rights activism in Eugene. Firsthand accounts from movement organizers, former UO students, elected officials, and other members of Oregon's black communities paint a vivid picture of the area's past, and urge us to take part in building a more just future. On view through May 10, 2020.

Speaker: Dr. Amy Boddy, University of California, Santa Barbara.
Bio: Amy M. Boddy is a human biologist and evolutionary theorist in the Department of Anthropology at the University of California, Santa Barbara. Her work uses applications from evolution and ecology to understand human health and disease. She uses a combination of genomics, computational biology and evolutionary theory to understand life history trade-offs between survival and reproduction across different levels of biological organization. One component of her research program examines how environmental cues, such as high extrinsic mortality, may guide resource allocations to cancer defenses and reproduction. Current cancer research topics include comparative oncology, intragenomic conflict, cellular life history trade-offs, and early life adversity and cancer outcomes later in life. In addition to her cancer research, she studies maternal/fetal conflict theory and the consequences of fetal microchimeric cells in maternal health and disease.
Presented by the Association of Anthropology Graduate Students.
Urban design and healthy cities
Air pollution, water access, sound and light, gentrification, inclusive design and equity in cities are growing challenges.
The Barcelona Urban Design Summer Program 2020 will center around urban health. Dense city neighborhoods will be mirrored with trips to the Pyrennes mountains and L’Empurda along the coast. A trip to the Alhambra in Granada will also explore Muslim and Jewish Traditions. Pritzker Prize RCR Arquitectes studio, associated gallery and works in Ripoll and Olot are visited as an example of top architecture and landscape design practice. The program will teach investigation and DESIGN methods for data-driven design including the use of mobile phones, Grasshopper / GIS and low-cost Arduino microprocessors are changing the way architects understand cities.
This nine-week summer urban design program in the Catalan city of Barcelona, Spain offers students insight into the measurement and design of urban relationships. In-situ work allows the integration of both existing and newly acquired datasets using architectural scaled software Rhino Grasshopper, associated plugins and custom scripts. These new design methods are supported by interaction with interdisciplinary local experts in planning, urban ecology, architecture, robotics, transit and landscape architecture. Classes meet at the CIEE study center in the heart of Barcelona near Plaza Catalunya. The location is ideal to experience urban living but near a beach.
Location: Barcelona is a world city dedicated to both urban design and the progressive application of computing to affect the everyday lives of people. The trust of the Catalan people in collective values is physically evident in the way they approach public space. Each year the city hosts the Mobile World Expo and Smart City Expo World Conference. Urban design in Barcelona is studied within three urban structure types: 1) the maritime metropolis planning of the 13th century gothic quarter and surrounding autonomous towns; 2) Ildefonse Cerda’s 19th century chamfered example grid extending the city ten fold and 3) contemporary planning strategies from the 1992 Olympic Games through the recent 22@ information activities district. Today the city integrates ideas of the autonomous village, the structure of the grid and contemporary planning into new ideas using smart city technology to plan pedestrian islands of ‘self-sufficient cities’ known as Superilles, or Super Blocks.
