Wanderlust: Photographs by Harlan Crowder
Solo photographic exhibition by Sunnyvale-based photographer
Krause Center for Innovation (KCI) Gallery
Admission is free; parking is $3. Purchase required parking permit from dispensers in any student lot.

Foothill College presents Wanderlust, a solo photographic exhibition by Sunnyvale-based photographer Harlan Crowder, Oct. 30 through Dec. 5, in the Krause Center for Innovation (KCI) Gallery at Foothill College. An opening reception is set for Thursday, Oct. 30, from 6 to 8 p.m. in the KCI Gallery. Admission is free; parking is $3.

The Wanderlust exhibit offers a rich collection of unique travel photographs that ranges from images of environmental portraits and street photography to the beauty of landscapes and seascapes.

Featuring images from the hectic streets of Old Havana to the tranquil shores of Myanmar’s Inle Lake; from mystic Roman ruins in Provence to the bustling new neighborhoods of Shanghai; and from Boston Harbor to San Francisco Bay, Crowder captures photographs that give a unique and personal perspective to places, cultures and people around the world. Wanderlust showcases travel photographs he has made over the last decade in North and South America, Asia, Africa and Europe.

Crowder photographs and travels extensively. “For me travel photography is about capturing images that give a sense of place and the people who live there," he said. "For example, the fishermen on Inle Lake in Miramar have an unusual way of navigating their boats that isn’t practiced anywhere else in the world. Being able to journey to new places to photograph remote cultures is what makes travel photography so inspiring and rewarding.”

Raised in Dallas, Texas, Crowder started photographing at age 12. However, before launching his photographic career, he specialized in the theory and practice of information technology with several companies, including a career with IBM as a research scientist, software developer and management consultant. His passion is the junction of art and engineering, using photography and digital imaging to make interesting pictures. He has shown his work in group exhibitions in Prague, Havana and throughout the San Francisco Bay Area. This is his first solo exhibit. View more of his work at www.harlancrowder.com.

The KCI Gallery is open Mondays–Thursdays, 8 a.m. to 7:30 p.m.; Fridays, 8 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.; and Saturdays, 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The gallery is closed Sundays and for holidays on Nov. 10 and Nov. 27–30.

Parking Lot  4 provides the best access to the KCI. A parking permit is required at all times. Purchase permit for $3 at dispensers in any student lot. Dispensers accept one-dollar bills and quarters. Foothill College is located off I-280 on El Monte Road in Los Altos Hills.

Theatre
February 19, 2015 - March 08, 2015
to be announced
On Stage: Sunday in the Park with George
Presented by Foothill Music Theatre & Foothill Theatre Arts Department
Lohman Theatre (Room 8002)
Parking is $3; purchase permit from dispensers in any student lot.

The Foothill College Theatre Arts Department and award-winning Foothill Music Theatre present Sunday in the Park with George Feb. 19–March 8 in the Lohman Theatre at Foothill College.

Performance times and ticket prices will be announced Fall 2014.

Music & Lyrics: Stephen Sondheim
Book: James Lapine
Director: Milissa Carey, Foothill College

Music Director: Dolores Duran-Cefalu
The Story: One of the most acclaimed musicals of our time, this moving study of the enigmatic painter Georges Seurat won a Pulitzer Prize for its deeply insightful and highly personal examination of life through art and the artist.

In the days leading up to the completion of his most famous painting, A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatté, Georges Seurat is struggling to make meaningful art and maintaining a relationship with his lover Dot. Amid the scorn of the artistic community, Seurat's artistic ability thrives while his love diminishes. A century later, Seurat's descendant—named George and also an artist—finds himself burnt out and in search of what artistic path to follow, but he finds the answer to his future in the past.

An ensemble of strong singing actors performs this challenging and heartbreaking work about our need to connect to the past, present and future. The ground-breaking work by Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine, the authors of Into the Woods and Passion, contain some of their most beautiful and stirring work.

Parking Lots 1 and 8 provide the best access to the theatre. Purchase permit for $3 at dispensers in any student lot. Dispensers accept one-dollar bills and quarters.
