Carleton College will highlight Pittsburgh-based, multi-media artist John Peña's "Daily Geology" in an exhibit in the Kaemmer Family Gallery of Perlman Teaching Museum, located in the Weitz Center for Creativity. Peña's two-year autobiographical project "Daily Geology" depicts one drawing a day to highlight a memorable if unremarkable moment or experience. Aiming to dramatize links between humans and nature, Peña defines his life as a slow accretion of experience; he offers small pencil drawings full of family dynamics, random encounters, personal hungers, and longings, to gradually tell the big story of a life.

 

Peña will appear at Carleton on Thursday, January 17 at 4:30 p.m. in the Weitz Center Cinema, presenting a lecture entitled, "Silly Doodles Filled with Sorrow and Joy," followed by a 5:30 p.m. reception at the Perlman Teaching Museum.

The U.S. Intelligence Community is a large, highly complex, and, some would consider, a vital organization within the U.S. government.  Often controversial, the role of intelligence in support of national security decision-making, the development of foreign policy and security strategy, and in support of diplomatic and military operations will be discussed during this lecture.  Our guest speaker will explain the “intelligence cycle,” the various collection disciplines, the organization of the U.S. Intelligence Community, funding for the intelligence community, and the role of the various intelligence agencies within the national intelligence framework.  A lengthy question and answer period is available at the end of the lecture for students interested in specifics with regard to the U.S. Intelligence Community and intelligence operations.
