Don't Miss Tim Hawkinson: BodyCon

From Oct. 6–Nov. 3, the Scarfone/Hartley Gallery will present Tim Hawkinson: BodyCon, a solo exhibition showcasing unique works of variable media from throughout this groundbreaking artist’s career. There will be an opening reception on Friday, Oct. 6, at 8 p.m.

Faculty and staff are invited to a special preview of the exhibition on Friday, Oct. 6, at 6 p.m. with the artist providing a special tour of the show, light refreshments and a beer and wine bar. RSVP to Jocelyn Boigenzahn, gallery director, at (813) 253-6217 or jboigenzahn@ut.edu.

Hawkinson’s idiosyncratic creations are meditations on nature, machines, mortality, the body and human consciousness. Since the 1980s, the artist has used common found and store-bought materials, handcrafted objects and machines to shift familiar subject matter off-kilter, constructing visual conundrums and conceits imbued with deeper meaning.

The artist’s inventive works range in size from monumental kinetic and sound-producing sculptures to almost microscopic pieces fabricated from such unassuming materials as eggshells and electrical cords.

Signature pieces in BodyCon will include “Gimbled Klein Basket,” a huge gridded bamboo structure suspended from the ceiling like a Calder mobile, and “Laocoon,” a hanging piece that appears to be a salvaged truck tire painted white, yet is carefully handcrafted from paper, wire, string, foam and rubber.

Driven by ideas, materials and an interest in transformation, Hawkinson continues to create unlikely and thought-provoking associations by transforming common materials into works of art.

A number of Hawkinson’s works in the exhibition use unorthodox methods to explore self-portraiture, including “Hangmanofmycircumference,” which utilizes dozens of belts wrapped on a wire armature to suggest a full-length standing figure. Objects like a silver quilt featuring a blown-up image of the artist’s footprint sewn into the fabric and a time-lapse photograph of a sunrise made with a digital photo-scanner also investigate the nature of the self in time.

Hawkinson has participated in numerous exhibitions in the United States and abroad, including such important surveys as the Venice Biennale (1999), the Whitney Biennial (2002) and the Corcoran Biennial in Washington, D.C. (2003).

Gallery hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Tuesday through Friday, and 1 to 4 p.m. Saturday. There is no charge for admission.

Campus Safety Officer Discusses Responding to an Active Shooter on Campus

JamesErwin

Most faculty, staff and students report feeling safe on campus, but all members of the University community need to remain vigilant.

Situational awareness, or simply being aware of what is going on around you, is one of the best ways to help prevent these types of incidents.

“Know the campus and your work environment. Who belongs and who doesn’t? Don’t blindly walk to your office or class,” said James Erwin, campus safety officer, who is a certified crime prevention officer.

Erwin said faculty and staff should know their building inside and out and identify at least two exits from the building other than the main entrance. He also encouraged employees to get to know the people in the departments around them and take note of how people dress. If someone walks in with a trench coat when it’s 90 degrees out, that should register as odd.

In an emergency, the University communicates with faculty, staff and students in three ways: text, email and the University website. Make sure you are signed up for text alerts through the SMART system.

To alert Campus safety of an incident, call x7777 or use the panic button installed on your computer. In an active shooter situation, it is best to call 911 first — Campus Safety monitors the line and will respond as well.

If an incident should occur, faculty and staff should remember that the University subscribes to the city of Houston’s “Run, Hide, Fight” training: Run to a safe place. If that is not possible, find a place to hide. If there is no other option, fight the attacker aggressively with whatever weapons are available (a pencil or hot coffee, for example).

“If there is an active shooter, know what to do. We currently subscribe to Run, Hide, Fight, but a better model may be Move, Escape, Attack,” said Erwin, who explained this as simpler in that you move to either escape or attack. “The most important thing is not to freeze — in these situations every second matters.”

If anyone in the University community would like training on how to respond to an active shooter on campus, Erwin provides periodic workshops throughout the year and can also fulfill specific department requests for a workshop. Contact Erwin at x7777 or jerwin@ut.edu.

Sustainable UT

Film Series Brings Sustainability to Life

By Dan Huber, associate professor of biology

Filmmakers have a unique ability to find windows into the human mind, through which they captivate our imaginations, intrigue our curiosities and inspire us to action. With this in mind, Sustainable UT is running the third consecutive Sustainability Film Series this semester in which we are presenting Before the Flood, FOOD Inc. and Death by Design.

SustainabilityFilmSeries

Before the Flood, which was screened on Sept. 18, examines the scientific basis of climate change, what it means for the human population and the massive disinformation campaign about it that has been manufactured by special interest groups.

FOOD, Inc., which will be screened on Monday, Oct. 23, at 6 p.m. in Reeves Theatre, is an Academy Award-nominated film that examines how giant corporations have taken over the U.S. food chain and created an industrial agriculture system that produces food which is unhealthy, in a way that is environmentally harmful and abusive to both animals and its employees.

Death by Design, which will be screened on Monday, Nov. 13, at 6 p.m. in Reeves Theatre, examines the tremendous waste and environmental impact of the electronics industry and the fast approaching tipping point between consumerism and sustainability.

Each of the film series events features a panel of experts from academia, business and government who discuss the film with the audience. We were quite honored to have Darden Rice, chair of the St. Petersburg City Council, on hand to discuss Before the Flood, and are looking forward to tremendous insight to be gained from our remaining panelists.

Refreshments and raffle prizes are provided at each of the films, and we hope that all faculty would promote the films to their students and consider using the films to achieve their learning objectives. The films are open to all members of the UT community.

Contact me with any questions. We hope to see you there!

UT and HSN Launch American Dreams Academy

UT’s John P. Lowth Entrepreneurship Center and leading entertainment and lifestyle retailer HSN, an operating segment of HSN Inc., have introduced the American Dreams Academy, an interactive, educational and experiential two-day summit for emerging entrepreneurs looking to launch or expand their businesses.

Rebecca White, professor of entrepreneurship and director of the center, said UT’s entrepreneurship team is honored to have been selected to serve as the providers of the American Dreams curriculum.

“To design this program, we combined our experience as both entrepreneurs and educators to create a skills-based program that will provide participants with the opportunity to enhance their odds of success in the marketplace,” said White.

Leveraging UT’s extensive network of collaborating institutions across the country, HSN and the University will partner with different universities to host intensive training academies, tapping into the individual resources at each institution to develop a dynamic, informative curriculum. The entrepreneurship center, in partnership with HSN, is creating the content, and will include courses across categories including, but not limited to:
  • Thinking Like an Entrepreneur: Mindset, Vision and Strategy
  • Money Matters: Accounting and Financing Your Business
  • Risk Mitigation: Legal and Tax Issues
  • Product Issues: Securing a Patent, connecting with big brands and Licensing Options
  • Manufacturing and distribution
  • Quality Assurance
  • Defining and Acquiring Customers
  • Customer Discovery: Branding, Marketing , Research
  • Perfecting Your Pitch
“The University of Tampa helping us launch the American Dreams Academy will introduce an integral educational component into HSN’s strategy to support and elevate emerging entrepreneurs as they bring their products to market,” said Bill Brand, president of HSN. “We hope to not only provide small business owners with the tools they need to successfully launch their brands, but also hope these academies serve as a catalyst in encouraging other businesses to partner with higher education institutions.”

Quirky, an online platform dedicated to helping inventors bring innovative products to market through community collaboration and manufacturing partnerships, will sponsor the American Dreams Academy, bringing its experience and network to more budding entrepreneurs.

The effort will become a key component of HSN’s American Dreams initiative — a program designed to tap into the joy and excitement of discovering new entrepreneurs, while collaborating with strategic partners to find, educate and train inventors as they bring their products to market. The third day of each Academy will be an open invitation for local entrepreneurs to pitch their product to a team of HSN and Quirky experts. Content for this fully-funded scholarship program has been created by UT’s Lowth Entrepreneurship Center and applications to attend will be open to the public on Oct. 6.

HSN and The University of Tampa will invite a renowned keynote entrepreneur to participate in the American Dreams Academy to share with attendees his or her experience in growing their businesses and establishing their brands.

The first American Dreams Academy will take place at American University, in Washington, D.C., Nov. 16–19, during National Entrepreneur Month. All applicants must have a product or business concept in development or established in order to participate.

UT Community Responds in Aftermath of Hurricanes

Hurricane Irma

While UT weathered Hurricane Irma well, never losing power and sustaining no damage to the grounds or buildings, other parts of Florida and the Caribbean were not so fortunate.

John Gavin, maintenance manager in Facilities Management, has lived in Florida his whole life and lived through his share of hurricanes. In 2004, Hurricane Charley left his home without power for a month.

Even so, when he traveled with fellow members of his church to the Florida Keys on Sept. 18 to deliver water and other supplies, the devastation was overwhelming.

“I’ve been in Florida all my life and lived through many hurricanes, but I’ve never seen so much damage,” said Gavin.

The group visited Marathon and Big Pine Key. Many homes and buildings were flooded in the storm. Though many houses that were built on stilts still stood, anything stored underneath — including cars and boats — was gone. Piles of sand and debris covered the road and littered the mangroves. Mobile homes had their roofs torn off, and a camp ground was washed away.

“The good news is there were a lot of people helping,” he said. Major gas companies were helping people fill gas cans for their generators, law enforcement was patrolling for looters and screening anyone coming and going, people were handing out water and hot food. A freezer truck was giving away free ice, and another empty truck arrived to load up debris.

“The infrastructure is being repaired,” said Gavin. “The greatest need is helping people to rebuild their homes or at least make them safe enough to live in.”

Back on campus, student groups have organized several events to raise money and gather supplies for victims of Hurricane Irma as well as Harvey and Maria.

On Sept. 27, UT’s PEACE Volunteer Center, Student Productions and Student Government came together to host a fair-style fundraiser to support Hurricane Harvey, Irma and Maria disaster relief efforts — featuring a lighthearted nod to Texas with mechanical bull riding.

Approximately 20 student organizations also hosted activities to encourage students to donate to the effort. The event raised more than $650 and more than 200 items, including nonperishable food, water, clothing and toiletries, were collected. All funds were donated to the Red Cross, and physical donations given to a local nonprofit.

On Labor Day weekend, the National Pan-Hellenic Counsel (NPHC) coordinated a cookout to gather food and supplies for Hurricane Harvey relief. NPHC is also coordinating a donation drive to benefit those affected by Hurricanes Irma and Maria in the Virgin Islands, which as of press time has raised $515.

Florida’s hurricane season is still active through Nov. 30. Be sure to check www.ut.edu/weather for the latest information about storms that may impact the Tampa Bay area and the University.
