2 ARTS+IDEAS 2019–2020 We acknowledge that CSU, Chico stands on the ancestral and unceded land of the Mechoopda Indian Tribe of the Maidu People. We recognize their long history on this land and we pledge ourselves to work with the Mechoopda as one community for the advancement and prosperity of all. I am excited to introduce 2019–20 Arts+Ideas at Chico State. This season, we invite you to explore all that Chico State has to offer through Chico Performances, School of the Arts, the North State Symphony, The Janet Turner Print Museum, The Jacki Headley University Art Gallery, NSPR, Valene L. Smith Museum of Anthropology, Gateway Science Museum, and our annual Lecture Series. Art in all its many forms, can uncover new ways of thinking, feeling, and understanding. It can serve as expression and exploration, and as a celebration of beauty and diversity. In the spirit of community, I hope you will join us for an exhibition, lecture, or performance. Together, we will celebrate art as integral part of the human spirit! Gayle E. Hutchinson President California State University, Chico JOINUS Your destination for live performances, stimulating lectures, diverse artists, and captivating exhibits.
