Making their first final round NCAA Men’s Lacrosse appearance since 1990, when current Coach Charley Toomey was the Hounds goalie, against the University of Maryland, Loyola set a number of NCAA records.  After going down 3-2 early in the game, Loyola turned the tide shutting out Maryland for more than 40 minutes and scoring 7 unanswered goals.  In the process, Eric Lusby broke the NCAA post-season record netting his 17th goal in the decisive crushing of the Terps, and set a school season record with 54 goals.  Loyola, who started the season unranked, also tied the record for most wins in a season (18) with Duke, and is the smallest school to ever win the NCAA Division 1 title.  If not for a pesky overtime goal by Johns Hopkins, Loyola would have finished the season undefeated and with the record of 19 wins.  We’ll work on that for next year.

Museum Monday: AVAM presents All Things Round

May 28th, 2012 by The Professor

The American Visionary Art Museum (AVAM) present’s its 17th annual thematic mega-exhibition, ALL THINGS ROUND: Galaxies, Eyeballs & Karma. It is a celebration and call to awareness of the circular and voluptuous nature of life. From the micro atomic spin of electrons encircling a nucleus to the macro orbit of planets rounding our sun, ‘Round’ delights in the curves, spirals, orbs, and bubbles of full-bodied beauty that playfully manifest throughout art and science.

This wholly original art exhibition features the exuberant works of 70+ inspired, intuitive artists including: Scott Weaver’s 100,000 toothpick wonder, ‘Rolling Through The Bay’; Adolf Wölfli’s intricate mandala-like works; spherical sculptures of artists who are sight-impaired; and the micro dot sock-thread embroideries of Ray Materson. Don’t miss Frank Warren’s all-time best true karmic PostSecrets; the 3-D sacred yarn paintings of the Huichol Indians; and a cosmic tribute to cyclical notions of time – including an exploration into the fast-upcoming, 2012 Winter Solstice “end” of the Mayan Calendar!

Co-curated by AVAM Founder & Director Rebecca Hoffberger and Mary Ellen ‘Dolly’ Vehlow – award-winning graphic designer & founder/sponsor of Washington, DC’s “H Street Festival,” ALL THINGS ROUND: Galaxies, Eyeballs & Karma is a lively circle dance with its visitors of all ages at its center! Running through September 2, 2012 at the American Visionary Art Museum.
