Help with food for the needy: Second Harvest Food Bank
Please join other Dartmouth alumni in providing some of our great “helping hands” to one of the largest food banks in the U.S., the Second Harvest Food Bank of Santa Clara and San Mateo Counties. Second Harvest provides food to nearly a quarter of a million people each month - people who sorely need their help. More than half of that food is healthy and nutritious fresh produce!
So, please join us for a Second Harvest Food Sort on Saturday, October 21, from 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM at Second Harvest’s Cypress Center at 4001 North First Street, San Jose. Dartmouth alums can help make a difference - and help with food for the needy in our community is a great way to provide that aid!
Young, strong backs are especially welcome, as food sorting usually involves quite a bit of lifting and bending. Participants must be at least 14 years old. The dress code at the Food Bank is casual and comfortable. No shorts and no tank tops are permitted. Closed toe shoes and long pants are required.
Here’s a link to a video about Second Harvest’s amazing work!
Note Change of Date! Teotihuacan: City of Water, City of Fire will explore how artworks from the ancient city shape our understanding of Teotihuacan as an urban environment. One of the earliest, largest, and most important cities in the ancient Americas, Teotihuacan is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the most visited archaeological site in Mexico. The exhibition, organized in collaboration with Mexico’s Instituto Nacional de Antropologia e Historia (INAH), will feature recent, never-before-seen archaeological discoveries and other major loans from Mexican and US cultural institutions. Monumental and ritual objects from Teotihuacan’s three pyramids will be shown alongside mural paintings, ceramics, and stone sculptures from the city’s apartment compounds. By bringing these pieces together, and encouraging visitors to understand the context of specific sites within the city, the exhibition will provide a rare opportunity for Bay Area audiences to experience a significant place in Mexico's cultural landscape—the captivating and mysterious ancient city of Teotihuacan.
Join your DAASV friends for a private, docent-led tour of KLIMT & RODIN: An Artistic Encounter early in the exhibit’s run, and then visit the other museum artwork and special exhibits on your own.
Marking the centenary of Rodin’s death in 1917 and that of Gustav Klimt in 1918, KLIMT & RODIN: An Artistic Encounter examines the diverse connections between these artists and their impact upon the art world. While Rodin is widely regarded as “the father of modern sculpture,” Klimt was a groundbreaking painter and a founding member of the modernist Vienna Secession movement.
This exhibition marks the first survey of Klimt’s work in California. Sharing the galleries with the Legion of Honor’s important holdings of Rodin works will be examples from Klimt’s oeuvre on loan from public and private collections in the United States and Europe, including the artist’s estate in Vienna and the Österreichische Galerie Belvedere, which holds the world’s largest and finest collection of Klimt paintings anywhere.
