Food for thought

Food... as art? Crops by the gallery might not be the norm, but that is exactly what Ron Benner has done for his exhibition "Common Currencies: Foodscapes" on exhibit beside the McIntosh Gallery.

The show exhibiting Benner's work opens at the gallery tonight at 7:30 p.m. To mark the event there will be a corn roast in front of Benner's corn garden from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m., serving food provided by the artist.

Arlene Kennedy, director of the MacIntosh Gallery, explained the corn garden, featuring different varieties of corn and information billboards, displays the importance of food as a medium of exchange within and between cultures.

Taking back the night

Help fight violence against women tonight at 6:45 p.m. during a "Take Back the Night" march at Victoria park downtown London.

The event is being organized by Western's Women's Issues Network and will feature special programming with guest speakers from CHRW at 7:30 p.m. to 10 p.m.

In a story yesterday, Freedom Schell was incorrectly identified as a former social science student council member. He was actually a social science representative for the USC.

In a letter to the editor yesterday, it was stated that Hana Skrdla sought help from the department of mathematics. It should have said the department of applied mathematics.

The Gazette regrets the errors.
