Writers pay tribute to Ginsberg
BY SEAN MCCARTHY
It would be difficult for any UNL stu
dent to get through an English class with
out reading one of Natalie Goldberg’s
Her books, “Writing Down the Bones"
and “Wild Mind" are on display as often
as Ralph Ellison and F. Scott Fitzgerald’s
works. Tonight, Goldberg and author
Barbara Schmitz will pay tribute to
another influential poet and author, Allen
Ginsberg, with a reading of their works at
Dudley Bailey Library, 228 Andrews Hall,
at 7:30 p.m.
Schmitz, who teaches English at
Northeast Community College in
Norfolk, apprenticed under Allen
Ginsberg at the Naropa Institute in
Boulder, Colo., in 1976. During that time,
she became good friends with Goldberg.
“We've been writing friends ever
since,” Schmitz said.
Ginsberg read some of Schmitz's writ
ings and poetry at the institute. Her
newest work, “How to Get Out of the
Body,” contains some of the poems she
has written since her apprenticeship.
“We decided to dedicate our readings
to Allen Ginsberg because he was a signif
icant teacher for both of us,” Schmitz
One of the hosts for tonight’s reading,
Cinnamon Dokken, suggested Goldberg
do a reading in Lincoln while she was
browsing through her store, A Novel Idea.
Dokken said Goldberg had a lot of admir
ers on various college campuses.
“She gives people a real sense of what
they have to say is important,” Dokken
Schmitz met Dokken at a writing festi
val last fall. The two had their tables set up
in the same area. Dokken said Schmitz’s
work was both reflective of the physical
landscape of the plains as well as casting
a keen eye on interpersonal relationships.
"Her work is unfailingly honest,”
“She give people a real sense
of what they have to say is

as the English Department and A Novel

Art addresses Latin problems of today
■The Sheldon Memorial Art Gallery will house
an exhibit which presents the injustices in Latin
America as well as possible solutions.
BY MAUREEN GALLAGHER
Social and economic injustices are being
addressed in an exhibit of avant-garde art entitled
Latin American Realities/Intemational Solutions,
which opens today at the Sheldon Memorial Art
The exhibit was originally organized in the
early 1970s by Jorge Glusberg, director of the
Center of Art and Communication in Buenos
Estera Milman, director of the University
Library Alternative Traditions in the
Contemporary Arts at the University of Iowa in
Iowa City, curated the exhibit that will be on dis
play untd May 27.
Each piece in the exhibit is presented in the
Argentine Institute for Rationalization of
Materials approved blueprint format
Each of the 30 pieces are done in black on off
white paper, 23 inches by 33 Vi inches, with the
lower right hand comer bearing the name of the
piece, the artist and the official stamp of approval
Sheldon Curator Dan Siedell said that the rigid
and formal technique was especially helpful
because of die art's message.
"These works of art deal with problems in
Latin America,” he said. "The artists are trying to
redraw plans for a new society.”
Siedell said that most of the artists featured in
this exhibit were new or unknown, and there were
only a handful of artists, such as Ken Friedman
and the Guerrilla Girls Art Group, whose names
would be recognized.
Many of the pieces rely heavily on text to con
vey their messages, and others rely on diagrams,
maps and schematic drawings.
Siedell said that even though artists used dif
ferent ways to frame their messages, the whole
exhibit had a common vision.
"This is perhaps the last attempt in modem art
to use art for Utopian purposes,” Siedell said.
"These artists are trying to use art as a tool to cre
ate radical social change.”

Violinist guitar duo join for performance
BY BILLY SMUCK
Most people may not be familiar
with their names, or even be able to pro
nounce them, but tonight’s collabora
tion of musicians at the Lied Center for
Performing Arts feels that the fresher
their music is to audiences, the more
powerful and enjoyable it will be.
Violinist Nadja Salemo-Sonnenberg,
who will join guitar duo Sergio Odair
Assad for a concert this evening at 7:30
p.m., realizes the music isn’t what the
public is most familiar with, but that just
sharpens the impact the artists have on
audiences, said Salemo-Sonneberg.
As one of the world’s most distin
guished violinists, Salemo-Sonneberg is
an admirer of all musical genres and has
collaborated with numbers of artists
from various musical backgrounds
throughout her performing career.
Tonight she is teaming up with th^
Brazilian-born Assad Brothers and will
be playing a mixture of traditional and
Gypsy folk music from around the
Salemo-Sonnenberg couldn’t praise
the Assad brothers' talent enough, say
ing that they’re two of the best at what
they do and comparing their abilities
with those of more well-known artists.
Of the people out there who think
someone like Jimmy Hendrix is the best
guitar player they ever heard, she
regarded those people as being Shel
Wanting to make it clear that she is
an admirer of Hendrix’s music, she does
n't believe he is the greatest guitarist
ever, her point being that many fans of
high-profile musicians are misguided in
regards to what a great musician is.
Salerno-Sonnenberg feels that in
terms of accessibility, the public’s expo
sure to music is very limited. They can’t
appreciate what they haven’t heard, she
In her opinion, many forms of music
may never acquire significant air time,
and as a result, many people who don’t
actively seek different kinds of music
will be missing out on a wide realm of
As far as recognition goes, Salerno
Sonnenberg has received a healthy
amount from the press and her peers,
with her performances being praised as
“unexcelled in the concert hall today.”
She has received the prestigious
Avery Fisher Prize, which is awarded to
musicians who have demonstrated out
standing achievement and excellence in
Salerno-Sonnenberg is also in great
demand as a recitalist and equally
accomplished as a recording artist with
15 albums to her name.
She has been featured on M60
Minutes,” “60 Minutes II,” "CBS Sunday
Morning,” and “The Tonight Show with
Salerno-Sonnenberg has also writ

form one of today’s most distinguished
guitar duos, playing a major role in
reviving contemporary music.

to write works for them and collaborat

Yo-Yo Ma and Dawn Upshaw.
The European-based duo has regu

Henry Rollins turned 40 this
However, with the exception of
