TO: Mills College Faculty and Staff
FROM: Beth Hillman
SUBJECT: Mills: Inside and Out

Dear all,

It was a big week for art and politics at Mills. At the Jane Green endowed lecture in art history, Larry Rinder of the Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive shared his thoughts on how museums have become sites of protest and activism. The Mills College Art Museum continued its exhibition of In-Between Places: Korean American Artists in the Bay Area and added "Home Movie Day" for this weekend. And the striking metal gate created by students in Professor Chris Sollars' sculpture class last year for the Mills Community Farm is on display after its permanent installation at the farm entrance was completed last week. Many thanks to the staff, students, and faculty who made the brilliant lecture, powerful exhibition, and complex installation possible.

While we were learning from these intersections of art, politics, and space, we also learned more about politics from both our students and the nation. The College officers met with a newly formed student group, the Undocumented Students Union, about their concerns related to financial security, an inclusive community, and the importance of student voices at Mills. From Washington, D.C., we received the first official notice of the potential implications for higher education of the tax bill being shaped by Congress. Mills and other colleges that rely on investment income will face significant challenges if the proposed changes are enacted. We will keep you posted as we work together to advocate for our mission and our students.
