Events for November 6, 2017
Benefits Open Enrollment Information Session
(2:00 PM - 3:00 PM)
Open Enrollment is the yearly period when employees can enroll in AU’s health insurance plan, make changes to their current health insurance enrollments, or to drop health insurance coverage if no longer necessary. After the Open Enrollment period is done you can no longer make changes to your health care plan until the next year’s open enrollment. The only way you are able to make changes to your health insurance during the year is if you have a qualifying life event.

The Human Resources Office was able to negotiate a zero percent increase for all overages for the 2018 year without any plan changes.
The Statutory benefit open enrollment dates have not been announced by NYSHIP but we anticipate that we will know shortly and we will announce those dates as soon as we have them.
This year it will be necessary for all employees to return a benefit election form to the HR office. The brochures with the form will be available soon.

Dr. Candelario's discusses Eiko & Koma, and Asian/American Choreographies
(7:00 PM - 8:00 PM)
Flowers Cracking Concrete: The Politics of Eiko & Koma's Choreography
Eiko & Koma are artists from Japan who have lived and worked in New York City since the mid-1970s, establishing themselves as innovative and influential American modern and postmodern dancers who continue to actively choreograph, perform, and give workshops across the United States and around the world. This talk, based on Candelario's 2016 book, Flowers Cracking Concrete: Eiko & Koma's Asian/American Choreographies, provides an introduction to duo's body of work, particularly their defining aesthetics of slowness and their emphasis on site-adaptability. Eiko’s solo project, A Body in Places, which will come to Alfred College in spring 2018, will also be discussed.
Andrew Raftery, Alex Lukas, Corinne Teed, Christy Gast

Exhibit at the Cohen Gallery: Residue
Residue: Caroline Hayes Charuk, Terry James Conrad, Ron Lambert, and SV Randall exhibit at the Cohen Gallery
Nov 3- Dec 8, Opening Reception 6:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m., Friday, November 3
The Cohen Gallery presents the work of Caroline Hayes Charuk, Terry James Conrad, Ron Lambert, and SV Randall in “Residue,” opening 6:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m., Friday, November 3.
As humans we leave a trail behind us- a record of our personal histories. Some of these marks are egregious like the oil spills in the oceans, others are poetic like the subtly scuffed paint surrounding a well-used door knob. The artists in this exhibition are using residue as a tool for making their art. By making objects to create stains, mimic stains, or employ stains for creative reflection, these four artists reflect how residue can create a metaphor for life’s experience.
