    Maria Schneider in Residence: Midday Muse Full Details [X]
    12:30 PM - 2:00 PM
    Midday Muse<br /> Thursday, March 9, 12:30 P.M.<br /> Jewett Auditorium, Wellesley College<br /> Lecture-demonstration, discussion, Q&amp;A<br /> <br /> &ldquo;Maria Schneider is a national treasure.&rdquo; &nbsp;&ndash; National Public Radio<br /> &nbsp;<br /> Maria Schneider&rsquo;s music has been hailed by critics as evocative, majestic, magical, heart-stoppingly gorgeous, and beyond categorization. She is known for her personal way of writing for her 18-member instrumental collective, tailoring her compositions to highlight the uniquely creative voices of the group. Her music blurs the lines between genres, giving her a long and diverse list of commissioners, stretching from Jazz at Lincoln Center to The Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra to David Bowie. She is among the very few musicians to have received Grammy Awards in multiple genres.<br /> &nbsp;<br /> Schneider is not only an award-winning composer and instrumentalist but an innovative business entrepreneur and music rights advocate. Her ArtistsShare Commission Project allows investors to step inside the world of musical composition, from the germ of an idea to a fully realized piece of music. A strong voice for music advocacy, her views on Spotify, Pandora, digital rights, and music piracy are frequently quoted in the media.<br /> &nbsp;<br /> <em>Generously supported in part by a Babson/Olin/Wellesley Presidential Innovation Grant; BabsonARTS; and the following Wellesley College sources: the Wellesley College Music Department, the Marjorie Copland Baum Memorial Fund, and the Florence Jeup Ford &rsquo;22, Mary M.

    Babson Campus - Hollister Hall - Lobby
    <strong><span style="font-size: 20px;"><a href="https://web.ovationtix.com/trs/pr/967288">Click here to RSVP</a></span></strong><br /> <br /> Artist Talk and Reception: Wednesday, April 5, 5:00 P.M.<br /> Exhibit on View: April 5&ndash;May 19<br /> &nbsp;<br /> Sachiko Akiyama&rsquo;s work brings together artistic influences of Brancusi, Egyptian funerary sculptures, medieval Christian woodcarvings, and contemporary sculptors with the artist&rsquo;s personal experiences and Japanese heritage, notably Japanese fairy tales. &nbsp;Her carvings convey a sense of centeredness and direct connections to nature that opens up the door to creation mythologies and other mystical possibilities. The figures&rsquo; relationships to flora, fauna, and the elements speak metaphorically to the ways we find meaning in our lives and meet the challenges of our surroundings.

She launched a Kickstarter campaign in 2014 to produce a documentary film. Her campaign was supported by nearly 9,000 Kickstarter donors who pledged more than $330,000. Babson College's Center for Women's Entrepreneurial Leadership (CWEL) was proudly one of the first corporate-level sponsors of the project. </span></p> <p style="margin: 0in 0in 0pt;"><span style="font-family: Calibri;">&nbsp;</span></p> <p style="margin: 0in 0in 0pt;"><span style="font-family: Calibri;">Released in 2016, the documentary "Embrace" follows Taryn&rsquo;s crusade as she traverses the globe talking to experts, women in the street and well-known personalities about the alarming rates of body image issues that are seen in people of all body types. In her effervescent style, Taryn explores the factors contributing to this problem and seeks to find solutions.</span></p> <p style="margin: 0in 0in 0pt;"><span style="font-family: Calibri;">&nbsp;</span></p> <p style="margin: 0in 0in 0pt;"><span style="font-family: Calibri;">Embrace had its world premiere at the 2016 Sydney Film Festival, where it was chosen as one of the festival directors&rsquo; top 5 picks. It was released in the US in September, 2016.</span></p> <p style="margin: 0in 0in 0pt;"><span style="font-family: Calibri;">&nbsp;</span></p> <p style="margin: 0in 0in 0pt;"><span style="font-family: Calibri;">"Our body is not an ornament but a vehicle, says Taryn Brumffit, whose life-endorsing documentary is a surprisingly moving experience. Surprising because the film canvasses issues far beyond the superficial stories about Photoshop, skinny supermodels and unattainable beauty. In her debut film, Bruffit, who garnered attention with arresting before and after photographs of herself posted on social media, has created an inspiring work in which the different ideals of beauty are explored." </span></p> <p style="margin: 0in 0in 0pt;"><span style="font-family: Calibri;">-- Louise Keller, Urban Cinefile</span></p> <br /> <div class="telerik_paste_container" style="border-width: 0px; margin: 0px; padding: 0px; left: 4px; top: 21px; width: 1px; height: 1px; overflow: hidden; position: absolute;">&nbsp;</div> <span id="docs-internal-guid-d4fc8535-6af2-8138-1021-416d790d4bbc"></span> <p style="line-height: 1.38; margin-top: 0pt; margin-bottom: 0pt;" dir="ltr">&nbsp;</p> <br /> <strong>Event Cost:</strong><br /> FREE <br /> You may opt in to make a $5 donation to support the Center for Women&rsquo;s Entrepreneurial Leadership.
