Summer SalonSamek Art Gallery, 3rd flr, Elaine Langone CenterIn 1725, the Paris Salon debuted at the Academie des Beaux-Arts. Works hung floor to ceiling ("salon-style") in order to showcase recent graduates from the Ecole des Beaux-Arts. In 1853, Bucknell University began building a museum collection that today numbers over 5,400 objects that span ancient to 21st-century cultures. In 2013, the Samek Art Gallery will combine these academic art traditions in a Summer Salon that celebrates 160 years of collecting art. This year's Summer Salon presents a galaxy of artworks arranged in the order they entered the collection so that history unfolds on the gallery walls. Future salons will continue the series that spans centuries and delights the senses.Barnes & Noble at Bucknell University BookstoreFollowing a careful, yearlong restoration, the Barnes & Noble at Bucknell University Bookstore -- featuring 29,500 square feet of books and other merchandise displayed among artifacts from the building's past -- opened for business in the summer of 2010 in downtown Lewisburg. The bookstore occupies the former C. Dreisbach's Sons Hardware Store on the northwest corner of Fourth and Market streets and Barnes & Noble at Bucknell University Bookstore includes a large inventory of books, magazines and sportswear, as well as a Starbucks cafe. The historic portions of the three-story building were preserved and highlighted by design, including an antique freight elevator and much of the original brickwork and woodwork. Modern touches include a massive skylight, Wi-Fi connectivity and artwork throughout showcasing Bucknell's history and iconic images. Shuttles will run all weekend, to and from the new bookstore.

However, significant questions remain regarding the implementation of the law moving forward. Professor Wolaver will discuss the economics of health insurance markets, the major features of the Act, and how the federal and state governments are responding to the implementation deadlines.Gallery Theatre, Elaine Langone Center, 3rd Floor3:15 – 4:15pmAlumni University Class: Collecting Art for 160 Years (Backward & Forward)Richard Rinehart, director of the Samek Art GalleryBucknell has been collecting art for 160 years. Many people think of art collecting as an historic or "past-oriented" activity. In reality, it's a forward-looking activity and curators must be futurists. A survey of Bucknell's first 160 years of collecting will be on view at the Samek Art Gallery and Director, Richard Rinehart, will offer insights into the future of collecting art with special emphasis on new media art. How does one collect art that fits onto a thumb drive? More importantly, how does one keep this art alive for the next 160 years?Gallery Theatre, Elaine Langone Center, 3rd Floor4:30 - 6 pmAlumni U ReceptionLight appetizers and beverages will be served.Samek Art Gallery, Elaine Langone Center, 3rd Floor5 - 7 pmAll-Class DinnerBostwick Dining Hall, ELC, 1st Floor
