Art House Film Series

The Campbellsville University Art Department Film Series continues with two more films. “Ai WeiWei: Never Sorry” will be shown March 28 and “The Gates” is set for April 10. The films will be shown at 10 a.m. in the Susan Kirkland-Tesseneer Art Studio at the corner of University Drive and North Columbia Avenue. "Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry” is quoted as "This compelling documentary explores three years in the life of celebrated Chinese artist and activist Ai Weiwei, who uses social media and his art to inspire protests against the state, and suffers government persecution for his actions." His work is mostly contemporary in nature but also incorporates ancient artifacts from his culture to make a statement. “The Gates” information follows: "In February, 2005, artists Christo and Jeanne-Claude installed 7,500 arches (gates), curtained with orange cloth that waved and billowed and decked miles of walkways in Central Park. The gates stood for 16 days, the first unfurled by Mayor Bloomberg, who championed the project, giving it the okay after the artists' 25-year quest to gain approval. Archival footage shows pro-and-con debates and various mayors and commissions turning down the project. By the end, the gates installed, the camera travels a winter landscape, orange shining through trees and reflected in ponds. Passers-by, quintessential New Yorkers, express pleasure. Art dwarfs the nay-sayers.” Everyone is invited. Contact the art department at (270) 789-5268 or Susie Trejo-Williams at (254) 368-5325 for more information.

Yard sale for Green River Ministries

Debbie Carter and Pam Tennant have a special request from all of you if you can help in any way. Both are on the Board of the Green River Ministries Homeless Shelter and are doing a spring yard sale at the actual homeless shelter on April 11. The purpose is to raise funds to help with all the expenses it takes to run this shelter. If you could donate anything at all you would like to clean out or get rid of it will all be much appreciated. Pam is taking the donations starting now and will pick them up or you can bring them to her. Anything you might see at a yard sale is wanted. Furniture is a huge seller so even that kind of thing would be super. We wanted to start now, so by April we have enough items to have a decent sale. Please help us out with things, or even money donations will be gladly accepted.

Art House Film Series

The Campbellsville University Art Department presents “Art House Film Series” March 14 and 18 and April 10. “Helvetica” will be shown March 14; “Ai WeiWei: Never Sorry” will be shown March 18 and “The Gates” is set for April 10. The films will be shown at 10 a.m. in the Susan Kirkland-Tesseneer Art Studio at the corner of University Drive and North Columbia Avenue. “Helvetica” is a feature-length independent film by Gary Hustwit about typography, graphic design and global visual culture. It looks at the prolifernation of one typeface (which celebrated its 50th birthday in 2007) as part of a larger conversation about the way type affects our lives. "Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry” is quoted as "This compelling documentary explores three years in the life of celebrated Chinese artist and activist Ai Weiwei, who uses social media and his art to inspire protests against the state, and suffers government persecution for his actions." His work is mostly contemporary in nature but also incorporates ancient artifacts from his culture to make a statement. “The Gates” information follows: "In February, 2005, artists Christo and Jeanne-Claude installed 7,500 arches (gates), curtained with orange cloth that waved and billowed and decked miles of walkways in Central Park. The gates stood for 16 days, the first unfurled by Mayor Bloomberg, who championed the project, giving it the okay after the artists' 25-year quest to gain approval. Archival footage shows pro-and-con debates and various mayors and commissions turning down the project. By the end, the gates installed, the camera travels a winter landscape, orange shining through trees and reflected in ponds. Passers-by, quintessential New Yorkers, express pleasure. Art dwarfs the nay-sayers.” A flier is attached.

Join The Bucket Project


The Bucket Project effort on the Campbellsville University campus seems to be marching along. I have tried to visit all department heads with information concerning the purpose of this project and the actions to be taken to complete a bucket. Those of you who have not received a visit from me, please email me at erowell@campbellsville.edu and I will be happy to go to you with all the information needed to pack a bucket. If you would like to read more about The Bucket Project, please use the following link to see videos and testimonies of what the project has meant in Kingdom work: https://gobgr.org/projects/project_detail/hospice-kits. Those of you in small departments may want to ask colleagues in other departments to share in packing a bucket. If some do not want to pack, but want to give money, the money will be used to help with the shipping of the buckets. When you write a check, please make it out to The Bucket Project. Please place the check in an envelop addressed to me, Edwina Rowell, UPO 823.

Since meeting with you, there has been a change in the approach to packing buckets. Thursday, March 27th, there will be no packing party in the evening. Instead, everyone may bring their packed buckets to the SAC any time during the day. The evening of March 27th, students may bring their packed buckets to the SAC and receive free pizza and convo credit. I am sure that anyone other than a student who brings a bucket is welcome to a slice of pizza as well.

April 9th all the buckets will be dedicated in chapel, then placed in vans to be transported to Parkway Baptist Church, Bardstown. Parkway will then take the buckets to FBC Murray who will send them to port in Virginia to be placed in a sea crate for the voyage to South Africa.

Thank you to everyone for your efforts and sacrifice in participating in this campus-wide mission endeavor. I am available to answer all questions at 270-849-5588.

On Mission Together,

Edwina Rowell

Childhood cancer is a serious issue and the number one disease killer of children in the U.S. and Canada.

The “Shaving To Conquer” event (St. Baldrick's) is on Saturday, March 22 at 11 a.m. in Powell Athletic Center and culminates the week of Conquer Committee activities. The total from the two Conquer events helped push CU past $270,000 raised in six years from our community to “conquer” cancer in kids.

Your support is vital in raising awareness locally about the need for increased activity and funding pediatric cancer research.

You can sign up online for our “Color To Conquer” at www.colortoconquer.com or pick up registration forms at CU Hawkins lobby, The Green Room, Wise Dentistry For Kids or N2Fitness.

All 46 students and 9 teachers got together in the BASC to learn about the history of Valentine’s Day and the customs involved with this holiday. The morning began with a history of St. Valentine. Then students participated in round-table discussions about how the holiday is celebrated around the world. After that, the students wrote and performed hilarious skits that centered around Valentine vocabulary like “Cupid”, “heartthrob”, and “lovebirds”. Lastly, students enjoyed Valentine’s treats and created artistic posters that included love poems. Please enjoy these pictures from the day!

Tiger Plunge is Feb. 22; pre-plunge is Feb. 19; please donate!

The Tiger Plunge is just a little more than a week away, and a race is developing for the recipient of the Golden Plunger Award for the most money raised.
So far, plunger senior Harry Haynes has raised more money than any of the other 18 plungers with $95.23 collected.
Following him closely, however, is Stan McKinney, assistant professor of journalism, with $77 collected. And closely behind him is President Michael V. Carter with $70.
Dr. Bob Wade, dean of the School of Nursing, is fourth with $38 collected.
The other plungers are Jordan Antle, Jayson Barnes, Dr. Tony Cunha, Dr. Jason Garrett, Dr. John Hurtgen, Cameron Jackson, Aris Kuntz, Luisa Martini, Shelby Mattingly, Ellie McKinley, Christopher Mills, Rob Roberts, Joshua Vincent and Vicky Wei.
There will also be a Golden Plunger Award for the team that raises the most money. So far, that is Mass Communication which consists of Haynes, McKinney, Garrett, McKinley and Wei.
Donations may be made to any of the plungers. For more information, go to www.tigerplunge.com
The Tiger Plunge is Saturday, Feb. 22 at 1:30 p.m. at the fountain in Alumni @ Friends Park.
Because Haynes cannot be present that day, there will be a pre-plunge on Wednesday, Feb. 19 at 2 p.m. Haynes’ run through the fountain will help test the waters, so to speak.
There will be a table during the pre-plunge where additional donations may be made. You or your team can also still sign up to take the plunge.
There will also be tables in the Dining Hall next week, just prior to the real plunge.
Those who raise $25 will receive a special T-shirt. Those who raise $100 will receive a commemorative stuffed Tiger.
Proceeds benefit the Alumni & Friends Park, The School of Nursing and the university chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists.

Yard sale for Green River Ministries

Debbie Carter and Pam Tennant have a special request from all of you if you can help in any way. Both are on the Board of the Green River Ministries Homeless Shelter and are doing a spring yard sale at the actual homeless shelter on April 11. The purpose is to raise funds to help with all the expenses it takes to run this shelter. If you could donate anything at all you would like to clean out or get rid of it will all be much appreciated. Pam is taking the donations starting now and will pick them up or you can bring them to her. Anything you might see at a yard sale is wanted. Furniture is a huge seller so even that kind of thing would be super. We wanted to start now, so by April we have enough items to have a decent sale. Please help us out with things, or even money donations will be gladly accepted. As the Bible states in Luke 12 verse 48,” Everyone to whom much is given, of him much will be required.” Thank you all.

CU participating in The Bucket Project

Campbellsville University is taking part in a wonderful project called The Bucket Project. The Bucket Project is a mission project where individuals are asked to send five gallon buckets, full of very basic medical, health, and related supplies, to HIV-AIDS patients in Sub-Saharan Africa. These buckets of supplies are given to provide assistance and quality life to homebound, terminally ill patients with HIV-AIDS. Please take a moment to view the website and videos for more information on this project: https://gobgr.org/projects/project_detail/hospice-kits

The Office of Student Activities would like to challenge each club or organization to fill at least one bucket for this project. There is a specific list attached to this e-mail that stipulates the supplies that will need to be purchased for the buckets. BGR asks that only the items on the list be purchased for the buckets due to the need and having to be transported through customs. On March 27 there will be a Packing Party in the SAC at 5:30 p.m. where everyone may come together to pack the buckets with the purchased items. Student Activities will provide free pizza and refreshments during the party. We are working to obtain convo credit for this event, and I will let you know if that is approved. In order to make the “packing” go smoothly we ask that everyone drop their bucket and supplies off at the SAC between 8 a.m.-5 p.m. on March 27. We will organize all of the supplies so that packing may begin at the start of the event. Thank you for your willingness to serve through this mission! If you have any questions don’t hesitate to contact Lesley Newton, assistant director of student activities, at (270) 789-5285 or lrnewton@campbellsville.edu.

This will be a great opportunity to come together as a community to worship, hear great preaching and music, and once again commit to continue to working together, across racial and ethnic lines, to move our campus, community, state and nation forward in unity – and to be reminded once again of the important work at hand to truly fulfill the dream, and honor the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

The Rev. Matthew Smyzer, CU trustee/pastor of Beargrass Missionary Baptist Church/Supt. of Missions for Central District Association of Baptists/Executive Director of the Baptist Fellowship Center of Louisville, will speak. Dr. Forrest Harris, president of American Baptist College, was scheduled to speak and cannot come due to health reasons.

Please join us for this community service sponsored by Campbellsville University and Greater Campbellsville United.

Call the Office of Church and External Relations at (270) 789-5520 or email sddouglas@campbellsville.edu or jechowning@campbellsville.edu, if you have questions or need of additional information. We hope to see you on Wednesday evening, Jan. 22! May God bless you in His service.
