    Becoming: An Intimate Conversation with Michelle Obama

    Remember those days when a president's wife was very publicly engaged and intellectually fierce and not married to a bloated bag of sewage with tiny little hands? The former first lady takes to the Erwin Center stage to share experiences and events, both public and private, that have shaped her – from her childhood on the South Side of Chicago to her years as an executive balancing the demands of motherhood and work, to her years spent at the most famous address in the world. Note: You probably want to buy your tickets ASAP, because this nation (with good reason) loves Michelle Obama.

    Women & Their Work: If I Could, I Would Cover Everything With My Drawings

    Hedwige Jacobs invites viewers into an almost meditative state of observation with her drawn surfaces, video installation, and cut patterns, in which "figures move about, hover on the edge of the impossible, and reconfigure themselves in endless variations drawn from everyday interactions."
    Reception: Sat., Jan. 19, 7-9pm
