THE MAROON WWW.LOYOLAMAROON.COM FRIDAY, OCTOBER 31, 2008 VOL. 86, NO. 7 THEY GAME FROM OUTER SPACE! By MASAKO HIRSCH STAFF WRITER Loyola beamed up a number of new art pieces placed around campus to complement the city-wide international modern art show visiting New Orleans this November Without much of an introduction, "Yellow Cake" appeared next to Bobet Hall earlier this week. Artist Mark Grote's large yellow sculpture comes in conjunction with Prospect. 1, a contemporary art biennial exhibiting pieces from artists around the world at various locations around New Orleans. Loyola has been chosen as one of the official sites for the event. "It's not just an art show. It's a very positive experience about how to rebuild your community," Karoline Schleh, director of the Collins C. Diboll Art Gallery at Loyola, said. "Yellow Cake" is just one of the pieces currently on display around campus before the Nov. 1 opening. Other works have been added for the new sculpture garden between Marquette and Bobet Halls. Most of the pieces were donated by the artists themselves or by galleries, like the Arthur Roger Gallery, and will be on display for at least one year. Three more pieces are being added to the garden in the upcoming week. "That space is very specific to Loyola. Every artist in there is either important locally or has something to do with the campus community of Loyola and our mission statement," Schleh said. So far, the response to the art has been mixed. "It feels awkward with the architecture of Marquette and Bobet. I think it'd look better in front of the Communications building since it's more modern," said Tessa Smith, psychology freshman. Loyola will also exhibit Dawn DeDaux's "Steps Home" and Paul Villinski's "Emergency Response Studio," as well as an alumni art show called "Recursion" centered in the Danna Center Gallery with pieces also exhibited around the school. "Steps Home" is a set of three steps that will be placed in front of the Communications/Music complex and will represent the remain- der of many homes that washed away during Hurricane Katrina. A Loyola press release described "Emergency Response Studio" as a FEMA-type trailer transformed into a "mobile artist's studio designed to enable visual artists to embed in post-disaster settings." It will be on display in the Peace Quad. "The Villinski piece is one that we're super excited about because it's going to be very interactive for the students," Schleh said. "Emergency Response Studio" will be the only official Prospect. 1 exhibition on campus. The others are satellite pieces that will run in STEVE HEATH/THE MAROON (Top) Students stop to observe "Yellow Cake" an artistic commentary on nuclear war by sculptor William "Mark" Grote.

STEVE HEATH/THE MAROON Economics gets the limelight By KATIE URBASZEWSKI MANAGING EDITOR Professors at Loyola get special attention from the credit crisis Loyola University economics professor Walter Block keeps a detailed list of every interview and speech he gives to media and associations outside the university. In March 2008, he spoke at the Austrian Scholars Conference. In June 2008, he lectured for the Ludwig von Mises Institute and contributed to an economic video project. In October 2008, he spoke nine times for nine different organizations, including news network Al-Jazeera, the Carrollton Rotary Club and the economic thought school Liberty Fund. Since mortgage giants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac went under, some economics professors at Loyola have said they've seen a significant rise in their popularity. "For once people are actually listening to what we say," economics professor John Levendis said. "They still don't believe us, but they're listening." On the evening of Sept. 30 Loyola's first "State of the Economy" forum, led by professors William Barnett and Ron Christner, boasted a turnout of about 300, according to Christner. The third forum, hosted Oct. 23 by Barnett, had a considerably smaller turnout of 23, but still lasted over two hours as he discussed federal policies and their effects on the economy with the crowd. "I suggested it," Barnett said of the forums. "I said this might be something useful." Barnett, a senior professor of economics, has seen a lot of requests for television and radio interviews as well, and has become a regular on "The Think Tank" talk show on WWL-FM, according to his colleagues. But even junior professors like Levendis are fielding requests.

Although this may be true, higher pay might not have been a motivating factor. We regret this mistake.
