Shapiro & Smith Dance Tonight!
Don't miss Shapiro & Smith Dance tonight at 7:30 pm in Newhall Auditorium. Since its founding in 1985, the Minneapolis-based Shapiro & Smith Dance has earned a reputation for performing tales of beauty and biting wit that run the gamut from searingly provocative to absurdly hilarious. Dancing with breathtaking physicality and emotional depth, they have earned an international reputation for virtuosity, substance, craft, and pure abandonment.

ScholarShift Story: Martin Luther and the Reformation

Students in Shattuck-St. Mary’s Honors Program, along with Latin students and ScholarShift module participants, attended the Martin Luther: Art and the Reformation exhibit at the Minneapolis Institute of Art on Wednesday, January 4.

SSM students spent the day at MIA, and explored the exhibit, which included paintings, sculptures, gold, textiles, and works on paper, in addition to Luther’s personal possessions and recent archaeological finds. Many of the items on display have never been featured outside of Germany, offering students a rare glimpse into the life and times of a man who made an enormous impact on religion several centuries ago.
