When Hood Museum Director Brian Kennedy arrived more than two years ago, I shared with him my vision of infusing Dartmouth with art, and he has embraced my call to take art directly to the broader public and place it in "unexpected places" on the campus. While plenty of Dartmouth students, faculty and staff will make a special trip to the Hood Museum to view an exhibit, I wanted to bring art outside of the walls of the Hood, to give the Dartmouth community the opportunity to be engaged with art, challenged by art and surrounded by art.

A couple of weeks ago, Orhan Pamuk, winner of the 2006 Nobel Prize for literature, spoke at Dartmouth. He talked about the landscapes of cities and the emotions they convey, about Turkish melancholy and the "nobility of failure," about painting, his daughter and about writing and what that entails. He read short passages from his collection of internationally acclaimed books and short stories. But overall, the talk focused more on why he writes than on what he has written. Most importantly, the talk was about the irresponsibility of childhood freedom.
Editors Note: Professor Ehrlich's column is the fourth installment of ExtraCurricular, an occasional series of commentary by Dartmouth professors. Each column approaches a topic of the authors choice, highlighting issues of faculty interest and opening them up to response from our readers.
Rik Reppe will perform his one-man show Wednesday at the Hop.
Rik Reppe has that sort of biting comedic insight that can take an everyday situation and tear it apart into little anecdotal chunks that define, condemn and compliment human nature all at once -- and in a delightfully vulgar manner.
Dartmouth sailing will look to garner a postseason berth and an improved ranking at this weekend's regattas.
The Dartmouth College sailing team has sent competitors to events across New England over the past two weeks. The team's hard training and long season have begun to pay dividends, as the past two weekends have largely been defined by successful sailing.
With the winter sports season starting to creep up, we cannot allow ourselves to be distracted from the task at hand: finishing the fall sports season with a bang. Here's a look at what certain teams at Dartmouth have to look forward to over the next few weeks.
The Big Green field hockey team could not close out its season with a victory, dropping the finale 2-0 to Cornell.
No matter how much the statistics point the other way, the only important figure at the end of the day is the final score. Sometimes, the luck just doesn't go your way. The Dartmouth field hockey team ended its 2007 season on such a fruitless note, falling short 2-0 to Cornell (10-7, 5-2 Ivy) to end the season with a 6-11 overall record and 1-5 in the Ivy League.
Recent discoveries about the relationship between blood vessel growth and heart size could open new possibilities in heart disease therapies, a study done by Dartmouth Medical School researchers reports. The research, announced in the November issue of the Journal of Clinical Investigation, indicates that blood vessel density directly controls organ size. Dr. Michael Simons, professor of medicine and of pharmacology and toxicology, led the research team in inducing angiogenesis (blood vessel growth) in laboratory mice. The mice's hearts doubled in size over a six-week period with increased density in vessels. Once researchers stopped inducing vessel growth, organ size remained constant and the heart functioned better. This discovery has real implications for cardiovascular problems, as mice that suffered from a heart attack benefited from induced blood vessel growth.
Ann Rhoades, who serves as a board member for Jet Blue Airlines, told students in the Haldeman Center about the importance of employees.

The new frame shop on Hanover's Main Street will also feature an art gallery and should open before Thanksgiving.
The Gilded Edge Frame Shop and Gallery, as its name implies, will double as a framing business and an art gallery. The store's grand opening will take place sometime near Thanksgiving and will feature a large reception displaying much of the gallery's artwork. Although Jenisch said that he has connections to bring in some pieces of art from across the country, he will focus on local artists' compositions for the time being.
