This landmark musical examines bachelor Robert's hopes and fears for marriage on the brink of his 35<sup>th</sup> birthday. &nbsp;He's sure that somewhere, sometime, the perfect girl just for him will appear, and until she makes herself known, he is content to play the field and observe the unfailingly quirky lives of all of his married friends. The 1970 musical was nominated for a record&nbsp;14 Tony Awards, winning six. Sondheim's score includes a host of memorable songs including, "Being Alive," "You Could Drive a Person Crazy," "Marry Me a Little," and the number that solidified Elaine Stritch as one of the greatest of Broadway stars, "The Ladies Who Lunch."

Over the past seven years, the I.D.E.A. Space has been using interdisciplinary arts experiences to enhance creative thinking by inviting students to apply analytical skills in new and challenging environments. In this program, Jessica Hunter-Larsen and four faculty members will present successful curricular collaborations and discuss their pedagogical value. Then, faculty will participate in a workshop in which they develop an arts-related activity based on one of their current courses. Hosted by Jessica Hunter-Larsen &rsquo;90, I.D.E.A. Space curator. Faculty presenters: Jane Murphy, Kris Stanec, Rebecca Tucker, Naomi Wood.</p> Dan Pallotta: "The Why of Innovation: Great Innovation Comes from Great Purpose" Fri, 03 Jul 2015 13:55:07 MDT https://www.coloradocollege.edu/events/2014-04-07-19-dan-pallotta-the-why-of-innovation-great-innovation-comes-from-great-purpose https://www.coloradocollege.edu/events/2014-04-07-19-dan-pallotta-the-why-of-innovation-great-innovation-comes-from-great-purpose <p><em>Monday, April 7, 2014 7:30 PM</em></p><p>Dan Pallotta is the keynote speaker for social innovation during the Innovation Institute Showcase. Pallotta invented the multi-day charitable event industry with the AIDS rides and breast cancer three-day events. These events have enabled ordinary individuals to make a difference, and have raised $582 million in nine years. Pallotta is the author of &ldquo;Uncharitable: How Restraints on Nonprofits Undermine Their Potential,&rdquo; the best-selling title in the history of Tufts University Press, and the founder and president of advertising for Humanity and the Charity Defense Council. His TED Talk &ldquo;The Way We Think About Charity is Dead Wrong,&rdquo; is one of the top 50 most-viewed presentations.&nbsp;</p> <p>&ldquo;The Why of Innovation&rdquo; identifies how innovation is all the rage in business literature these days&mdash;how to stimulate it, how to improve it. But why? Why create it in the first place? In this talk, Pallotta explains that great innovation comes from great purpose &mdash; from a desire to move humanity forward, no matter what the industry or sector. Ultimately, great innovation comes from love. It&rsquo;s a profoundly moving oration for corporate or social change audiences, and it will leave people thinking differently about thinking differently.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> Privilege Walk Mon, 31 Mar 2014 07:37:25 MDT https://www.coloradocollege.edu/events/2014-04-08-privilege-walk https://www.coloradocollege.edu/events/2014-04-08-privilege-walk <p><em>Tuesday, April 8, 2014 12:00 PM</em></p><p>Come out to Worner Quad for pizza and an activity that helps us all better understand the differing levels of privilege on the CC campus!&nbsp;</p>
