News & Events

Fourteen students participating in the New York study program joined more than 50 Lewis & Clark alumni at the Whitney Museum of American Art in December. Stewart Buettner, professor of art history, led a tour of the exhibition Over the Line: The Art and Life of Jacob Lawrence. Guests included Michael Healey ’91, actor; Beth Miller ’73, Lewis & Clark trustee and managing director of Credit Capital Markets; Susan Feibelman ’77, upper school director at Packer collegiate Institute; and Joseph Wachs ’91, artist.

More than 70 young alumni and their guests attended the Oregon Ballet Theatre: Rock Ballet on March 9 at Keller Auditorium in Portland. The event featured the works of James Canfield, Oregon Ballet Theatre’s artistic director: “Alta Cienega,” a rock ballet set to the music of the Doors; “Coco,” an homage to fashion designer Coco Chanel; and “Jungle,” a work that combines elements of classical and contemporary ballet.

On April 11, Lewis & Clark will host an evening reception and discussion with Richard Rohrbaugh, Paul S. Wright Professor of Christian Studies, at the Rainier Club in Seattle. He will present one of his most popular and thought-provoking lectures, “A Question of Honor,” which examines the way honor and shame influence Mediterranean people and the resulting impact on our political and social interactions with people from that region. To RSVP, call Cindy Fite in the Office of Alumni Relations at 800-753-9292, extension 5, by Friday, April 5.

The alumni relations office recently revised and updated its Web site to provide alums with timely information on events and services.

Above: For the past two years, nine young Lewis & Clark alumni, known informally as the “Disco Chickens,” have teamed up with their friends to run the Hood-to-Coast Relay—a 195-mile race that begins on Mount Hood and ends at Seaside. “Our approach is to have a ton of fun,” says Ryan Johnson ’98. “We dress in zany costumes, wear wigs and face paint, and shout encouragement with bullhorns. Everyone knows us.” Lewis & Clark participants are Hans Nordstrom ’96, Justin Adams ’99, Ashleigh Adams ’97, Jefna McCuistion ’97, Jim Drennon ’97, Ben Luman ’97, Ryan Johnson ’98, Amy Klein ’99, A.J.
