In talking with Dr. James Schaap about the books to be read in Siouxland 101, we cannot help but land upon the hardships of old times: grasshopper infestations, prairie fires, the unrelenting hand of nature. Walls of devastation that fell upon the early European settlers of Siouxland, that left families prostrated on the hard ground as their livelihood was lost, do not now, however, register in our list of daily fears.
Jackson Pollock said about his large paintings that he wanted to be in them. Of Mural, Pollock wanted to insert more than himself. He said, it contained all the animals of the American West: cows and horses and antelopes and buffaloes. It is a a place where he had a “General notion of what [he was] about.” Standing before Mural, one questions what they are about, what the painting is about, what art is about.

The Morningside Piano Recital Series continues this Thursday with a recital by acclaimed pianist Denis Evstuhin. The program includes Tchaikovsky's The Seasons, a set of twelve pieces that were commissioned by a magazine publisher in 1875 and published one at a time over the course of year. The work was steady and provided Tchaikovsky a dependable income as he contemporaneously composed Swan Lake.
