November 7-8
Geometric Aljamía Workshop

This workshop accompanies the exhibition Geometric Aljamía currently on view in the Henley Galleria, 2nd Floor, Argyros Forum. Artists Reni Gower and Jorge Benitez of Virginia Commonwealth University will lead students in an exploration of sacred geometry transferred into art. Participants will create designs using geometry, personal and heritage imagery, which they will then cut out in Tyvek. This hand drawn/hand cut process requires creativity and focus.  In direct contrast to our fragmented culture, this quietening of the mind will underscore the benefits of slow work wrought by hand.

Participants (maximum 10 for each workshop) may choose EITHER:

-          Monday November 7, 9-11.50 a.m., Fish Interfaith Center

-          Tuesday November 8, 1-3:50 p.m., 404 Beckman Hall 

The class is free, but requires registration. Please RSVP to Esther Shin at artcollections@chapman.edu. For questions, please call (714) 628-2832.

For more information about the exhibition, visit the Chapman Happenings page here.

The Beast, the Antichrist, and 666: An Alternative to Speculation by Paul Anderson
While these noted Johannine themes and other biblical texts have contributed to amazing paradigms of speculation over the years, this presentation will challenge some prevalent views while affirming others. When viewed in late first-century historical perspective, the relevance of these biblical texts becomes all the more striking. This presentation examines crises in the early church with timely implications for faithful discipleship in every generation—an alternative to speculation.
