Opportunities abound for activists

Our segment of the Berlin Wall defaced. Willy’s Statue became a canvas for hate. If you see the Rice community’s exceptionally brief, muted response to these acts of vandalism as testament to its coolness under stress and unwillingness to bend to provocateurs, I sincerely applaud your ability to see the good in an apparently unfortunate situation.

A eulogy for Rice Gallery

For 22 years, the Rice Gallery has been a crown jewel for the arts at Rice. This semester will see the space’s final exhibition before the Gallery’s closure and apparent absorption into the Moody Center for the Arts, and that’s a move I can’t help but mourn. Unique in its format for a university exhibition space, the large-scale, site-specific installations that graced the ground floor of Sewall Hall had a special effect.
