It's been unusually cold for unusually long in the Willamette Valley. Judging from the snowball fights in Jackson Plaza, the students have been okay with it.
Reminder: Frank Miller, university photographer, uploads a steady stream of phenomenal shots (winter and otherwise) to Instagram. Consider following along.
Got a blanket? The Hallie Ford Museum of Art is still gratefully accepting donated blankets from the WU community to be incorporated into a sculpture commissioned from Marie Watt '90, a Native American artist who's also an alumna (see The Scene, Spring 2012 for more on Watt).
Each blanket donor will receive a print from Watt, and donors will be invited to the sculptures dedication in the spring. Contact the Hallie Ford Museum of Art by email or phone at 503-370-6855 to contribute or learn more.
Happy holidays, everyone. Stay warm out there.
