Thanksgiving Weekend Tour
Bakersfield Museum of Art – Join BMoA on the Friday after Thanksgiving for a special tour of Astrid Preston’s exhibition “Poetics of Nature” with Curator Rachel Magnus. Astrid Preston has explored the real and invented landscape for over 30 years, though the work in Poetics of Nature cannot be categorized by a singular style. The paintings seem to zoom in and zoom out in detail and representation. The earliest work is grounded with references to realism, often times quite reminiscent of early Renaissance landscape painting. The most recent work takes on a contemporary element with the insertion of pixilation. The various ways of working and interpreting the landscape are ultimately part of a larger picture. When seen in its entirety, the work of Preston’s becomes a vision of landscape that heightens our senses to its beauty in all its complexities.

CSUB Alumni Holiday Mixer
CSUB Alumni Association – The CSUB Alumni Holiday Mixer, the Alumni Association’s next signature event linking graduates to their university and its students, will celebrate the season and support a great cause: the campus’ new food pantry. A whopping 40 percent of CSUB students reported in a 2013 survey being food insecure at least once in the past year, meaning they had some limited or uncertain access to enough food. Eighty percent had asked their family for help getting enough to eat. So at its inaugural holiday mixer, the Alumni Association will ask attendees to donate an item to the CSUB Food Pantry, which opened this fall. The event will also be a great chance to mingle, network and otherwise get to know fellow CSUB alums and their friends during the holiday season.

Hot Topic: Food Insecurity on College Campuses.
League of Women Voters of Kern County – We know the statistics. Kern County currently ranks as one of the most food insecure regions in the nation. What we seem to have a harder time grasping is that the issue of hunger goes far beyond emergency food relief. Join us on Saturday, December 9, 2017, for an in-depth look at hunger, and how Cal State Bakersfield is attacking the issue of student hunger at a systems level. Summer Sullivan and Kassandra Hernandez will be joint presenters. Summer Sullivan’s job at CSUB is to oversee the development of our Edible Garden, a project created to increase the campus community’s food security rate and provide educational opportunities that emphasize student learning by researching, developing and advancing sustainable foods. Kassandra Hernandez is a first-generation college student (just graduated from UCLA; Go Bruins!) passionate about food justice and labor law. Currently, she is serving as an AmeriCorps member in Bakersfield. Kassandra’s position is the CSUB Food Pantry Coordinator, developing an emergency food access point on campus to address the relationship between high rates of food insecurity and low rates of student STEM retention/graduation. he December 9th, Saturday, general BREAKFAST meeting begins at 8:15 a.m. at Hodels, 5917 Knudsen Drive. The presentation is free, and if you wish to have breakfast it is only $15. Reservations are necessary by noon Thursday, December 7.. .
