Rob Mango: RHAPSODY; paintings

RHAPSODY Rob Mango, NYC The thirty Rhapsody paintings were created from 1982-2003. The subject of these works is the hero – a symbol of the artist – who like Ulysses is on a complex and dangerous journey. But rather than on a path home, the hero's ultimate destination is an unknown realm where he seeks an answer to the question, "Who am I?" "Mango's paintings can be seen as being produced by a man whose body was fed oxygen to a fantastical high while running through the city." - Excerpt from Robert Mahoney's forward in 100 Paintings: An Artist Life in New York, by Rob Mango. Opening Reception: Friday, March 23, 2018, 4:00–6:00 p.m. in the Gallery Details about this Exhibit → Artist's Web site →

FOIL: The Past and Future of Public Information in New York

The Freedom of Information Law (FOIL) allows any person to request and obtain--without explanation or justification--existing, identifiable, and unpublished governmental records, including documents, data, and video. Signed into law in New York in 1974, FOIL remains a powerful public panacea in unlocking information and maintaining vital transparency in our state government. Databases detailing public employee compensation, online viewing of highway department agreements and school district superintendents' contracts, and text message exchanges--all disclosed and made public through FOIL requests--are now common. Even though the last decade has ushered in an increased demand for public information, challenges from the government have grown just as quickly in an effort to conceal public records. This leaves the central question – what would happen if the government disclosed? If you're an advocate for government transparency, this is the talk for you. Nexus is a seminar series presented by Utica College faculty in which they discuss their research interests and scholarly pursuits. It is an opportunity for participants to explore new findings and viewpoints and share ideas with faculty, students, and the local community. Refreshments are served at 2:15 p.m.; seminars begin at 2:30.
