Competitors ride between hills at a neutral pace, and a whistle signals the rolling start of each hill. The top male and female riders on each hill score points, with the first place male/female rider scoring 10 points and the tenth place receiving 1 point.  The final standings are established by cumulative points throughout the event. In order to qualify as a finisher, riders must complete each hill in the event without losing forward progress or dismounting from the bicycle. If a rider fails to maintain forward progress, he or she must descend to the bottom of the hill and ride to the top under their own power.

Expect to ride 30 miles-ish and 3.5-4hrs.

This event supports AMBUCS Birmingham, a non profit organization that provides therapeutic bicycles and trykes to those with disabilities.

Friends Gallery / Jan 4 - Jan 31, 2020
Plaza Gallery / Feb 1 - Feb 28, 2020
Bib & Tucker Sew-Op is a non-profit located in Birmingham, AL. Their mission is to cultivate skills and an environment for those who sew or want to sew (ages 9-99) where everyone can be both a student and a teacher. They achieve their mission through projects conducted in the community, workshops and weekly sewing sessions conducted in their shop. They aim to be a hub for sewing-related activities that promote empowerment, education and economic opportunity.

The March Quilts began in 2015 when Bib & Tucker Sew-Op partnered with UAB’s Department of Art & Art History and the Birmingham Museum of Art to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Selma to Montgomery marches through open sewing sessions that yielded 461 quilt blocks. Sew-Op members stitched the blocks together and made three quilts, which hung at the Selma Public Library and the Alabama Department of Archives in Montgomery during the anniversary. Due to an overwhelmingly positive response, collaborators agreed that it should become an annual project. For five years, Bib & Tucker members have chosen a civil or human rights theme and facilitated open sewing sessions and discussion. During these sessions, community members created quilt blocks that express personal feelings about the theme. Since the beginning, Bib & Tucker members have sewn 10 quilts from over 1,050 submitted blocks. Themes have included celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Loving vs. Virginia Supreme Court Ruling, raising awareness of gender pay equity, environmental justice and most recently, unsung heroines of Alabama.

The Hudson River School is known as the first American artistic fraternity which began in the mid19th century under artist Thomas Cole, a British immigrant who brought with him the emotive and imaginative European influence of Romanticism. After Cole’s death, the movement known as the Hudson River School rose to prominence highlighting the natural beauty of America. This artistic movement, focusing on sweeping landscapes, played a part in the westward expansion of America, propelled by the increasing popularity of Manifest Destiny. But in the mercurial landscape of a growing nation, the Hudson River School’s popularity fell as quickly as it rose. Focus IV explores the rise and fall, as well as the consequences, of this impactful, yet short-lived artistic movement. Focus is a series of exhibitions that spotlights local and regional private art collections in the Southeastern United States. Focus IV: Eclipse of the Hudson River School / Selections from the Koleszar Collection highlights work from the Birmingham-based collection of Bill and Elizabeth Koleszar.

In 2013, Alabama-based artist Allyson Comstock spent six weeks living and making art in Antarctica as part of the National Science Foundation Antarctic Artists and Writers program, working and living alongside scientists engaged in climate change research. Comstock’s series of drawings, Antarctica: Micro, Macro, and In-between, questions how our society views and understands the larger natural world. Each triptych in the series contains three perspectives of the landscape of Antarctica: the macro, the micro, and the artist’s view — the in-between. To foster a deeper understanding and conversation about Antarctica, Comstock created postcards from images taken during her time in Antarctica which she mailed to people across the world. This group of people, comprised of a myriad of professions, created artwork in response to her postcards resulting in the series Responding to Antarctica. AEIVA’s iteration of the series will also feature response pieces created by UAB students, painting a picture of the impact of Antarctica, the disappearing continent.

Competitors ride between hills at a neutral pace, and a whistle signals the rolling start of each hill. The top male and female riders on each hill score points, with the first place male/female rider scoring 10 points and the tenth place receiving 1 point.  The final standings are established by cumulative points throughout the event. In order to qualify as a finisher, riders must complete each hill in the event without losing forward progress or dismounting from the bicycle. If a rider fails to maintain forward progress, he or she must descend to the bottom of the hill and ride to the top under their own power.

Expect to ride 30 miles-ish and 3.5-4hrs.

This event supports AMBUCS Birmingham, a non profit organization that provides therapeutic bicycles and trykes to those with disabilities.

Friends Gallery / Jan 4 - Jan 31, 2020
Plaza Gallery / Feb 1 - Feb 28, 2020
Bib & Tucker Sew-Op is a non-profit located in Birmingham, AL. Their mission is to cultivate skills and an environment for those who sew or want to sew (ages 9-99) where everyone can be both a student and a teacher. They achieve their mission through projects conducted in the community, workshops and weekly sewing sessions conducted in their shop. They aim to be a hub for sewing-related activities that promote empowerment, education and economic opportunity.

The March Quilts began in 2015 when Bib & Tucker Sew-Op partnered with UAB’s Department of Art & Art History and the Birmingham Museum of Art to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Selma to Montgomery marches through open sewing sessions that yielded 461 quilt blocks. Sew-Op members stitched the blocks together and made three quilts, which hung at the Selma Public Library and the Alabama Department of Archives in Montgomery during the anniversary. Due to an overwhelmingly positive response, collaborators agreed that it should become an annual project. For five years, Bib & Tucker members have chosen a civil or human rights theme and facilitated open sewing sessions and discussion. During these sessions, community members created quilt blocks that express personal feelings about the theme. Since the beginning, Bib & Tucker members have sewn 10 quilts from over 1,050 submitted blocks. Themes have included celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Loving vs. Virginia Supreme Court Ruling, raising awareness of gender pay equity, environmental justice and most recently, unsung heroines of Alabama.

The Hudson River School is known as the first American artistic fraternity which began in the mid19th century under artist Thomas Cole, a British immigrant who brought with him the emotive and imaginative European influence of Romanticism. After Cole’s death, the movement known as the Hudson River School rose to prominence highlighting the natural beauty of America. This artistic movement, focusing on sweeping landscapes, played a part in the westward expansion of America, propelled by the increasing popularity of Manifest Destiny. But in the mercurial landscape of a growing nation, the Hudson River School’s popularity fell as quickly as it rose. Focus IV explores the rise and fall, as well as the consequences, of this impactful, yet short-lived artistic movement. Focus is a series of exhibitions that spotlights local and regional private art collections in the Southeastern United States. Focus IV: Eclipse of the Hudson River School / Selections from the Koleszar Collection highlights work from the Birmingham-based collection of Bill and Elizabeth Koleszar.

In 2013, Alabama-based artist Allyson Comstock spent six weeks living and making art in Antarctica as part of the National Science Foundation Antarctic Artists and Writers program, working and living alongside scientists engaged in climate change research. Comstock’s series of drawings, Antarctica: Micro, Macro, and In-between, questions how our society views and understands the larger natural world. Each triptych in the series contains three perspectives of the landscape of Antarctica: the macro, the micro, and the artist’s view — the in-between. To foster a deeper understanding and conversation about Antarctica, Comstock created postcards from images taken during her time in Antarctica which she mailed to people across the world. This group of people, comprised of a myriad of professions, created artwork in response to her postcards resulting in the series Responding to Antarctica. AEIVA’s iteration of the series will also feature response pieces created by UAB students, painting a picture of the impact of Antarctica, the disappearing continent.
