Flags at half-mast honor state trooper
Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo has directed that flags on state government buildings—including those at UB—be flown at half-mast on June 1 in honor of New York State Trooper Amanda Anna, who died on May 26.
Anna died as a result of injuries sustained from a car accident while on duty in Oswego County. Her funeral will take place on June 1.
Exhibition extended at Anderson Gallery
An installation by master printer Chunwoo Nam, currently on view in the UB Anderson Gallery, will be extended through July 22.
The installation, titled “Their Globalization,” speaks to the human consequences of our global economy. It is dominated by a wall of prints depicting Times Square incrementally fading due to the degradation of the printing process. Images of interconnections and absence permeate the installation, including an imposing and brightly colored pile of clothing hemmed in by shirtsleeves tied together situated before an altar.
The UB Anderson Gallery is located at One Martha Jackson Place near Englewood and Kenmore avenues, adjacent to the South Campus.
Gallery hours are 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday, and 1-5 p.m. on Sunday.
