USM's Lewiston-Auburn College continues its Monday evening lecture series with guest speakers, free and open to the public. This lecture features Todd Watts.

Todd Watts is a photographer whose work explores environmental change, unconventional printing techniques and image manipulation. For the past thirty-plus years, he has pushed the edges of his chosen medium, recombining the language of painting, sculpture, and film with photography.  According to a review in the New York Times, “The artist's pictures, which look as if they were air-brushed with glowing veils of color, are as gorgeous as photographs conceivably can get.”  His work has been exhibited and collected internationally, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Brooklyn Museum, The Art Institute of Chicago, The Graphic Collection Albertina, Bibliothèque National, Musée des Beaux-Arts de Lyon, and others.

The purpose of this program is to reduce homophobia, transphobia and heterosexism, etc etc on our campus and thereby to make our campus a safe and free environment for all members of our community - regardless of sexual orientation or gender identification. By agreeing to become a participant in Safe Zone Project, you agree to undergo training and to serve as a resource for people seeking clarification of issues of sexual diversity.

After the training sessions you will receive resource materials and a Safe Zone placard used to indicate that they have been through the training and become an “ally.” The Safe Zone placard is a message to LGBT individuals that you are an understanding, supportive, and trustworthy individual. LGBT individuals will know they can come to these allies for help, advice, or just to talk with someone who is supportive of their sexual orientation.

Please RSVP to Sarah Holmes at sholmes@usm.maine.edu or phone 780-5767 (sessions with fewer than 5 people may be postponed or rescheduled).
