Rock the Vote (RTV)
Rock The Vote (RTV) is a national organization that seeks to "build political power for young people," and is coming to UK for the very first time. At its core, RTV is a musical celebration aimed at encouraging political awareness and responsibility among young adults. Throughout this event, SAB hopes to not only entertain students with a FREE concert (artist: TBA), but also to educate and enrich students by providing them with numerous informational resources from student, community, and state groups, as well as the opportunity to register to vote. Craig Mullaney talks about his service to our country so take a note from Craig and do your part to be engaged! Encourage fellow Wildcats to get out there to vote to make a difference and let their voices be heard!
Rock the Vote is sponsored by Student Activities Board. For more information contact Derek Operle at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Luke Haynes: Quilt Exhibit
Luke Haynes, a widely known Quilting artist from Seattle, uses cloth as a higher art form to investigate nostalgia and function, challenging the status quo of expression. His project themes include America's culture and history, gender bias within culture, use of household textiles, self-portraits, and even "Flightless Birds," depicting one of nature's oxymorons. In creating these new images, Luke's curiosity provides an enriching opportunity for students to be exposed to a unique language of work. Even if you're no artist, it's valuable to see life through different lenses and forms, including through an artist's perspective. Just as Craig explored his curiosity through traveling, Hindu, and extensive reading, so should you! Be sure to stop by the Rasdall Gallery in the Student Center to explore Luke's unique work.
Luke Haynes's quilt exhibit is sponsored by Student Activities Board. For more information contact Sarah Jones at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
