10:00 AM German Expressionism At SDMA The San Diego Museum of Art presents German Expressionism.

In 2011, the museum received an extraordinary gift from the Estate of Vance E. Kondon and Liesbeth Giesberger: 48 exceptional works by the leaders of the German and Austrian avant-garde in the first half of the 20th century, including Otto Dix, George Grosz, Gustav Klimt and Egon Schiele. Presented as a temporary exhibition in 2012, these works are a remarkable collection of German Expressionist paintings, drawings, and prints.

Today, a selection from this private collection, as well as a few other German Expressionist works from the museum's permanent collection, are on display.

11:00 AM Exhibition: African American Art 'Impressions' San Diego Mesa College Art Gallery presents "Impressions: African American artists and their connection to African Art," an exhibition featuring the works of Andrea Chung, Kenyatta A.C. Hinkle and Robert Pruitt as well as select pieces from the San Diego Mesa College African Art collection. Chung, Hinkle and Pruitt create work that represents the black body and inscribes it with meaning through the use of historical im, references to African art and symbolism.

Their work establishes a dialogue that both deconstructs and demystifies gender and race. The artifacts in the African Art collection, some dating as far back as the 16th century, enter into conversation with the works of these contemporary artists and in doing so they reassert their cultural and artistic influence on African American art. Together, this visual ensemble from the past and the present both illuminates and offers insights into the African American experience.

5:00 PM Talk: Murder of a Town in Galicia For centuries, Poles, Ukrainians, and Jews coexisted in the East Galician town of Buczacz, but the German conquest of the region in 1941 transformed it into a site of genocide. By the time the town was liberated in 1944, the entire Jewish population had been murdered by the Nazis, with help from local Ukrainians, who then ethnically cleansed the region of the Polish population. In this talk, Omer Bartov, the John P. Birkelund Distinguished Professor of European History and German Studies at Brown University, explores the dynamics of this horrifying genocidal violence, and discusses its erasure from local memory. Born and raised in Israel, Bartov is one of the world's leading authorities on the subject of genocide.

7:00 PM - 8:00 PM An Archaeological Perspective on Humans and Climate Change How are modern day humans adapting to climate change? To find the answer, archaeologists are studying how human societies have responded to environmental changes in the past.

Dr. Isabel Rivera-Collazo focuses on understanding human resilience and adaptation to past environmental change as a lens through which we can view the future. Finding answers involves diverse disciplines, including archeology, anthropology, geomorphology, ecosystem dynamics, and climate science. Learn how her work at Scripps Oceanography and in UC San Diego's Department of Anthropology is changing the way we view climate change and its impacts on society.
