Planetarium Upgrade A GIANT LEAP FOR FLANDRAU

By M. Scot Skinner Flandrau Planetarium has been showing us the stars since it opened on campus in 1975. But the moon looms large in a fascinating new film about the University of Arizona’s pivotal place in the 1960s space race. “Desert Moon,” which will be shown in the planetarium’s domed theater through December, centers on the pioneering work of Gerard Kuiper, a demanding genius who established the Lunar and Planetary Laboratory at the UA in 1960. The Dutch-born astronomer came to Tucson from the University of Chicago, bringing with him several of his top students and staffers. Together they published the Consolidated Lunar Atlas, a compilation of the best images of the moon’s nearside. Kuiper and his team were instrumental in the effort to put a man on the moon. They identified landing sites for NASA and talked with astronauts about what conditions to expect on the lunar surface. Directed by UA journalism grad Jason Davis, “Desert Moon” zeroes in on the Ranger missions that laid the groundwork for the Apollo program.

Digital projection system and 'Desert Moon' documentary making their debut under the dome this fall Kuiper was principal investigator for the Ranger missions, the first six of which failed. But everything worked perfectly for Ranger 7, which sent back more than 4,000 photos of the lunar surface. Ranger took the pictures, a thousand times better than those taken from the Earth, during its last 17 minutes. It crash-landed, as intended, on July 31, 1964. That moment 50 years ago was a turning point in the American effort to land a man on the moon. Ranger 7, in fact, was the space program’s first unequivocal success after 13 consecutive failures. The narrator of “Desert Moon” is Capt. Mark Kelly, an astronaut who served on four Space Shuttle missions, the last two as commander. Kelly and his wife, former congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, saw “Desert Moon” at its Flandrau premiere over the summer, said Bill Plant, Flandrau’s director of exhibits. “Capt. Kelly, who was seeing it for the first time, said afterward that he was really impressed with how it came out,” he said. Left: “desert Moon” director Jason davis with narrator capt. Mark Kelly at the Flandrau Science center & Planetarium. Background: Mars surface and selfie taken by naSa's curiosity rover. Top Right: Jupiter Photos courtesy Flandrau Planetarium

The 35-minute “Desert Moon” film is not a fulldome experience, Plant says. “But our planetarium operators will be able to fly the audience on their own trip to the moon after the film using a brand new digital projection system.” More impressive, visually speaking, will be shows designed to take advantage of Flandrau’s new state-of-the-art digital system. Installed over the summer, it’s a major upgrade from the decades-old Minolta star-projection system. The old system was an analog relic. But the new system will immerse the audience in high-resolution fulldome imagery and fly them through the cosmos. “Starting Sept. 5, we’ll be able to explore in greater detail all kinds of cool science from dinosaurs to hurricanes,” Plant says.


“With this system, we can bring up the current night sky, for example, and if Mars is up there, the visitor will be able to fly to Mars, visit its moons and then zoom down to the surface and see where the Curiosity rover is conducting its investigation of the Martian climate and geology.” The upgraded system uses two projectors powered by advanced computers and software to stitch together crisp imagery that covers the entire planetarium dome. “We can’t wait to show visitors what it can do,” Plant said. “I think audiences are going to be amazed by the experience. It will excite the imagination with 360-degree dynamic visualizations of science, from the inner workings of a human cell to the vast reaches of the universe and everywhere in between.”

The upgrade is the first phase for Flandrau, which is raising money for phase two: More comfortable seating, installed in a more effective configuration and some other architectural improvements. When that’s done, the planetarium’s transformation into a cutting-edge science-exploration theater will be complete, Plant said. And it’s going to sound better than ever as well, he added. “That’s thanks to a new 5.1 audio system that will make our planetarium and laser music shows even more amazing.” The trippy extravaganzas returned to Flandrau in 2010 after a 10-year absence. The planetarium’s library of about 20 laser shows includes one that’s inspired by the moon. The dark side of it anyway.

Self-Guided Tour

EXPLORING THE UA MALL 6. integrated learning center:

1. Old Main

In order to preserve the artistic and historic nature of the UA Mall while setting the ILC in the academic heart of the University, an innovative idea was hatched: place the Integrated Learning Center underground. Located directly beneath the UA Mall, this subterranean facility houses classes, faculty offices and a 24-hour computer lab.

The UA’s first building, which opened in 1891, has been recently renovated to house the President's office and a variety of student admissions services. Campus tours begin here.

2. centennial hall The Auditorium, as it was originally called, was built in 1936. It’s the home of UApresents, which offers a wide variety of performances each year, including Broadway shows, modern dance, stand-up comedy and concerts.

10.  henry Koffler Building Built in 1992, this chemistry-andbiology building is one of the newer classroom buildings on campus. Among its distinctions is the “25 Scientists” sculpture on its north side.

11.  robert l. nugent Building This 1937 building was originally the UA Administration Building. Today it houses the Dean of Students Offices and various multicultural student centers.

7.  Flandrau Science center & Planetarium

12. herring hall

Flandrau got its start with a 1972 bequest from the estate of Grace H. Flandrau, a noted author and frequent winter visitor to Tucson. It opened its doors in 1975. Flandrau offers handson science exhibits, mineral collections and planetarium light shows.

3.  arizona State Museum Established in 1893 by the Arizona Territorial Legislature, ASM is the oldest and largest anthropology museum in the Southwest. It’s also one of the oldest research units on the campus.

This little charmer with the four Doric columns out front is the second-oldest building on campus. It opened in 1903 as a gymnasium. Today it’s home base for the Campus Arboretum.

4.  Student union Memorial center This main hub of campus houses a large array of student services. The Union's design and some of its décor pays tribute to the U.S.S. Arizona, sunk at Pearl Harbor in 1941. ua BookStores offers some 75,000 titles, leather chairs, a Starbucks, a cosmetics counter and UA-themed clothing.

5. administration Building Constructed in 1966, the building houses many business, financial services and administrative offices.

8.  Main library Built in 1976, the library today has more than 7 million volumes and state-of-the-art technology, making it one of the top-ranked university libraries. It is open to the public.

9.  Bear down Gym Built in 1926, Bear Down was originally the men’s gym. It was used as barracks for cadets attending U.S. Naval Training School during World War II. The gym currently houses the Center for Exploratory Students and the Think Tank.

Pride of Arizona

Photo by Gregor Orbino

BLASTS ALTERNATIVE ROCK

By M. Scot Skinner The University of Arizona’s marching band provided the halftime entertainment for the first Super Bowl. More than 50 million people watched the game, which was broadcast simultaneously on two networks, NBC and CBS. A video of the band’s crisp and patriotic 18-minute show, which looks precisely how you would imagine a 1967 video to look, was posted on YouTube not long ago. Band members, joined at one point by the Grambling State University band, arranged themselves into a map of the United States and also the Liberty Bell, which drew an ovation from the crowd when the famous crack materialized. Today, nearly 50 years later, the UA’s marching band remains one of the nation’s most distinguished. In 2009 the College Band Directors National Association named it among the Top 5 in the country.

Football’s halftime is primetime for all marching bands, but not too many have starred in the biggest halftime show of them all. Since Dec. 9, 1902, the sight, sound and showmanship of the band has been an integral part of the UA football experience. Over the years, it has also performed at bowl games and in all kinds of festivals and national events, including the inauguration of President Jimmy Carter. Known as the Pride of Arizona since the early 1980s, the band bills itself as the World’s First Alternative Music Marching Band.

“That’s been our brand, our shtick if you will, for the last 20 years or so,” says Alli Howard, who was named the interim band director following the recent resignation of Jay C. Rees. Rees, whose nearly two-decade tenure as band director is second only to Jack Lee’s 28 years at the helm, announced over the summer that he was leaving the Wildcat Nation to become the band director at the University of Miami. “Jay was headhunted hardcore by Miami, which tells you something about how much he was able to accomplish at the UA,” says Howard. “Under his leadership, the Pride of Arizona maintained a national profile.” Howard also goes way back with the band. During her freshman year at the UA in 1995, which coincided with Rees’ first year as band director, she played alto sax. During her junior and senior years, she served Continued on page 19 UA VISITOR GUIDE FALL/WINTER 2014

Pride of Arizona as drum major. Howard, who also earned a master’s degree at the UA, spent about eight years as a band director at two Southern Arizona high schools (Sunnyside and Rio Rico). She returned to the UA two years ago and last year served as the associate director of athletic bands. The Pride’s main stadium show this fall will feature the music of Daft Punk, including the smash “Get Lucky” and other songs from the French duo’s Grammy Awardwinning “Random Access Memories” album. Previous seasons have featured innovative and groove-intensive arrangements by Rees of hits by Radiohead and the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Looking forward, Howard says she’s most excited about UA Band Day on Oct. 25, which will bring to

campus upwards of 40 high school bands from throughout Arizona and New Mexico. “I love watching the high school students react to performing in Arizona Stadium, which has the best acoustics of any stadium in the state, and to the Pride of Arizona’s performance,” she says. “Our kids, who take seriously their unofficial jobs as recruiters, leave everything on the field that day.” Marching band is a course offered through the School of Music. It’s not limited to music majors, and any student may join. The approximately 250 members participate in “classroom” time on the practice field and devote additional hours before, during and after each home football game. She says the course is taken largely for the honor and pleasure of playing before tens of thousands of people each week.

Former bandleader Jack Lee wrote the music and lyrics for “Bear Down Arizona,” which became the school’s fight song. He composed it in 1952 on a flight back to the Midwest after the interview that landed him the bandleader job.

Take 3: DISCOVERING UA By M. Scot Skinner

The new Old Main

The fencing that surrounded UA’s first building for the last 18 months was gone in time for the fall semester. Old Main is back in business again after a $13.5 million renovation. The iconic two-story structure opened in 1891, welcoming the university’s first students, all 32 of them. Originally known as the Main Building, its name was changed to Old Main in 1927. Built with the brutal summer heat in mind, it was sunk three feet into the ground and had thick brick walls for insulation and wide, wraparound verandas for shade. Rodney Mackey, the project’s design director, said that Tucson’s oldest building was showing its age in a variety of ways. Despite a couple of major renovations in the past, Old Main required further fortification and repair, infrastructure improvements and extensive renovations of the second floor, he said. The project is being paid for with private donations. The original metal roof and overburdened verandas were replaced. New heating and cooling systems were installed and the wooden-floor structure reinforced with steel. From the outside, Old Main looks pretty much like it did in territorial days. And while half of the interior

24

UA VISITOR GUIDE FALL/WINTER 2014

has been restored to its original look, the other half has modern offices of aluminum, glass and maple. The first floor houses a variety of student services, while about half of the second floor houses the offices of Ann Weaver Hart, the UA’s 21st president, and her administrative staff. The project helps ensure that Old Main remains “the front porch of the university,” Hart has said.

New home for UA golf teams After more than a decade at Arizona National on Tucson’s northeast side, the UA golf program has a new home course this year. The men’s and women’s teams will use Sewailo Golf Club for practices and competitions at least through the end of June 2015. Sewailo is adjacent to the 215-room Casino del Sol Resort southwest of Tucson. “It’s a championship venue with amazing facilities,” says Laura Ianello, head coach of the women’s golf team. “It will help us improve our current players, while attracting high-level student-athletes from around the world.” Jim Anderson, head coach of the men’s team, is also excited about the partnership with the Pascua Yaqui Tribe, which comes with a five-year renewal option. He described Sewailo as a chal-

lenging course. “It’s a very good test and will prepare us for competition throughout the season, while the practice facilities are among the very best in college golf. Having a facility to train and develop our players’ games is a critical piece of our goal to win championships.” The agreement, which comes with a five-year renewal option, allows the UA golf programs exclusive use of a separate driving range and the ability to play the course throughout the year. Sewailo Golf Club (Sewailo means “flower world” in the Yaqui language) is situated just south of the casino on land that was formerly open desert. The area looks more like an oasis now. Designed by Ty Butler and Notah Begay III, the 7,400-foot course incorporates a number of water features. Sewailo Golf Club is open to the public. Go to www.sewailogolfclub.com for more info.


Seeing stars at UA Museum of Art The UA Museum of Art is celebrating 90 years of art exhibitions on campus by diving deep into its permanent collection of some 6,000 objects. In a yearlong series of exhibits called “An Unfolding Legacy,” the museum is showing long-acknowledged favorites by the likes of Edward Hopper, Mark Rothko, Andy Warhol and Jackson Pollock. The museum also is showing works that get lots of loan requests by other museums, reproduction requests by various publications and research requests by scholars. The selections are organized around a variety of themes or sometimes grouped together to highlight the importance of particular donors (the museum’s entire collection was built through private donations). One hundred Poems All by One hundred Poets through (1844-45), a woodblock 2014, for print by Utagawa example, Kunisada UAMA will put on view works that pay tribute to the generosity of Edward Gallagher Jr. Here was a guy who not only donated his own impressive Modern art collection, but established an endowment that allowed UAMA to buy more than 1,300 pieces for its permanent collection. Gallagher’s impact is such that the museum had to divide the tribute into three separate shows, explained Olivia Miller, curator of exhibitions and education. For more information about the lineup of fall exhibits, see pages 6-7. The UA Museum of Art is in the Fine Arts Complex near East Speedway and North Park Avenue. It’s open daily except Mondays. Admission is $5.

emphasis: political affairs, literature, science history, performing arts, Arizona & the Southwest, the UA and the Borderlands. The latter collection, devoted to materials that illuminate life along the U.S.-Mexico border, will see a significant expansion this fall with the launch of “The Documented Border,” an open-access digital archive. “I believe it’s going to be very thought provoking and raise further awareness of issues that are happening along the border,” said Erika Castano, an assistant librarian who is building the digital archive. A link to the archive will be posted on the Special Collections website, she said. “It will be a lasting resource for people to view and discover over time,” Castano said. “Hopefully it will

By M. Scot Skinner If you’ve ever wondered what life was like around here in the roughand-tumble days before Arizona joined the union in 1912, Special Collections has you covered. Visitors can read letters from ordinary territorial soldiers to their sweethearts and families. Or maybe you’d like to read papers related to famous, influential Tucsonans like environmentalist Edward Abbey or former congressman and presidential candidate Morris K. Udall. Anyone with photo identification is welcome to view any of the vast holdings at Special Collections. Keep in mind, however, that the materials can’t leave the reading room. “You never know what you’re going to find,” said Bob Diaz, Special Collections librarian.

grow with new content.” Initial contributions will include audio interviews with border reporters conducted by associate professor Celeste Gonzalez De Bustamante and Jeannine Relly, an assistant professor. Both are on the School of Journalism faculty. The researchers talked with veteran journalists about the difficulties of covering events on both sides of the 1,933-mile southern border. They also interviewed prominent human rights activists. “There is no other repository quite like this in Arizona, giving everyone a chance to gain a better understanding of the region, its peoples and its history,” said Bustamante of the archive, which will be available to everyone for free. It will launch at the same time as an exhibit of the same name at Special Collections. The “Documented Border” exhibit opens Oct. 3 and will be on view through Dec. 19. The curator is Verónica Reyes-Escudero, who serves as the Borderlands curator at Special Collections. The exhibit will also include illustrations by Lawrence Gipe, an associate professor in the School of Art. Gipe’s drawings depict “Operation Streamline” deportation proceedings. Because cameras aren’t allowed in the federal courts or detention facilities, his drawings are some of the few images available to the public.

All aboard, Cats!

STREETCAR WILL TAKE YOU THERE By M. Scot Skinner When students arrived for classes in August, they found a gleaming new streetcar waiting for them. Tucson’s long-awaited Sun Link finally started rolling at the end of July. Visitors who climb aboard at one of the campus stops will get a good look at several neighborhoods and business districts along the nearly 4-mile route. It’s not the first time a streetcar has linked the UA to downtown. But the new streetcar is the first to hit Congress Street, downtown’s resurgent main drag, since Dec. 31, 1930. That’s when Tucson’s original electric streetcar ended its 24-year run. Sun Link runs under Speedway from UA Medical Center to Second Street, then west through Main Gate Square on its way to North Fourth Avenue, downtown and Mercado San Agustin on the other side of Interstate 10. The $197 million project connects the UA’s 40,000 students to more than 150 retail businesses, 100 restaurants, 15 galleries and museums, 22 hotels and B&Bs, a half dozen the-

aters and at least a dozen nightclubs. Public art is integrated into stops all along the route, starting with an installation at the northeast terminus on Helen Street and Warren Avenue. “Poet” is a six-foot head that’s covered in 8,000 random steel letters that look like they came from a refrigerator somewhere. At night, it’s lighted from within and glows a shimmering blue. Simon Donovan, the artist who created the striking piece with collaborator Ben Olmstead, says the head might look familiar to anyone who knows Richard Siken, a local poet of some renown. “We had his head scanned with 3-D lasers while he held his cheeks puffed out,” Donovan said. “A computerdriven saw then cut the head out of Styrofoam and made a multi-layered plaster mold.”  Fresh poetry provided by the UA Poetry Center will always be streaming at the Helen Street stop and at 11 of the other platforms, he says. For all capital improvement projects, the City of Tucson and Pima County devote one percent of the budget to public art.  

Leaving the giant poet’s head behind, the streetcar zips under Speedway and hangs a right on East Second Street, taking riders a few blocks to the bustling Main Gate Square, which boasts all manner of shops and eateries. Continuing west on University Boulevard the streetcar rolls through part of the charming West University neighborhood before turning left on North Fourth Avenue. The Fourth Avenue Business District is jammed with restaurants,

nightspots, tattoo parlors and shops that sell everything from vintage clothing to candles to medical cannabis. There is even, get this, an honestto-goodness bookstore. According to a recent piece in Paste Magazine, Antigone Books (established in 1973) is the nation’s oldest feminist bookstore. The Fourth Avenue Street Fair is another longtime favorite for locals and visitors alike. With hundreds of arts-and-crafts booths, dozens of food vendors and at least two stages of entertainment, it draws a merry horde to the avenue twice a year. The next one is Dec. 12-14. As the streetcar leaves the funky avenue, it goes under railroad tracks that bring the Sunset Limited to a historic depot on Toole Avenue. Built in 1907 and recently restored, the depot is a destination in itself. In addition to the Amtrak station, the old depot houses shops, offices and the Southern Arizona Transportation Museum. A statue memorializes an 1882 incident on the site involving Wyatt Earp and Doc Holliday. Congress Street is home to three theaters, each marked by a splashy neon marquee. The Rialto, the stripped-down concert venue across from the historic Hotel Congress, anchors the east end. The Fox Theatre, an Art Deco beauty that first opened its doors in 1930, is a few blocks to the west. In between is the smaller Screening Room, a downtown fixture that has hosted the annual Arizona International Film Festival since 1990. The

The new owners brought first-run movies back to downtown for the first time in 40 years. In addition to art galleries galore, downtown is also home to the Tucson Museum of Art. If you’d like other ideas about what to do while you’re in the Old Pueblo, stop by the Tucson Visitor Center in La Placita Village, 110 S. Church Ave. At the stop on Granada Avenue and Cushing Street, on the southwest corner of the Tucson Convention Center, you’ll see “Wandering Stars,” a public art piece by Tucsonans Blessing Hancock and Joe O’Connell. “A flock of triangular forms is frozen in motion at the stop,” Hancock said. Touch-sensitive points allow riders to control the colors, changing

Moving on, Sun Link takes you under the freeway to the Mercado San Agustin, an inviting collection of independent eateries, bakeries and shops on West Congress Street at Avenida del Convento.

Homecoming 100 will be celebrated on campus Nov. 6-8, 2014. For a complete rundown of activities, including the parade and the Wildcat for Life Tailgate Party, go to www.uahomecoming.com

Homecoming 2014 WHEN CATS COME BACK

By M. Scot Skinner Homecoming, with its football, bonfires, royalty, parades and pep rallies, is ubiquitous at high schools and colleges across the nation. But, though it might seem otherwise, homecoming hasn’t always been a thing. According to the NCAA, the birthplace of homecoming is the University of Missouri, which invited graduates to “come home” for a 1911 football game against its rival the University of Kansas. When the UA followed suit with a homecoming celebration of its own in 1914, it became just the fifth school to do so. Something else of historic importance to the UA was also born 100 years ago, courtesy of a 24-year-old sportswriter. The Los Angeles Times sent Bill Henry to Tucson for the muchanticipated contest between J. F. “Pop” McKale’s Varsity team and the defending Pacific champs from Occidental College. His story, published Nov. 8, 1914, became part of UA history thanks to this passage: “Confident of rolling up a big score, the Tigers took the field with grins on their faces, but before the game was 10 seconds old they knew they had a battle on their hands. The Arizona men showed the fight of wild cats . . . “

The UA lost the game, but gained a nickname. Even so, if you run into Wilbur Wildcat at the homecoming bonfire this year, don’t give him a high five and tell him he looks pretty fly for a 100-year-old guy. The big man on campus is a relative youngster. The mascot started showing up at football games in 1959 and before long the pistol-packing cat in the cowboy hat had replaced the use of real bobcats. The first animal, given the name Rufus Arizona, was brought to campus in 1915. Wilbur Wildcat and his better half, Wilma, who came along in 1986, are played today by students who remain anonymous until they climb out of the costumes for the last time. Wilbur no longer packs heat, by the way. Speaking of heat, the traditional bonfire will once again be a big part of homecoming, says Jill Hall, vice president for student and alumni relations. “We fortunately get to have the bonfire back on the west side of Old Main,” she says. The fire was scrapped last year during the renovation of the historic building. But the restoration of UA’s first and most iconic building is now complete. The two-story structure at the heart of campus, completed in 1891, will once again be the rallying point for homecoming activities Nov. 6-8. “We’re trying to involve Old Main

as much as we can,” said Hall, who joined the Alumni Association six years ago and took over homecoming duties two years later. “We’ve also tried to put a lot of stuff into Friday, the beginning of Reunion Weekend.” The bonfire will burn brightly at the Nov. 7 pep rally, helping to fire up students, alumni and other fans for the next day’s big game versus Colorado at Arizona Stadium. Wilbur and Wilma Wildcat will be there, naturally, and so will football coach Rich Rodriguez, the Pride of Arizona marching band and the 2014 Homecoming Court. “That’s where we’ll announce the homecoming queen and king,” says Hall. All alumni are invited back to campus for homecoming, Hall says. But the UA Alumni Association formally invites designated classes back each year. Says Hall: “For Homecoming 100, we will welcome back the classes of 1964, ’74, ’84, ‘94 and 2004. Reunion Weekend is a fantastic way to rediscover the UA, reconnect with classmates and relive your college days. We hope to see many Wildcats back on campus for a variety of fun, family-friendly events. “It’s really a celebration for the whole community,” she adds. “We’re looking forward to having lots and lots of people visit.” UA VISITOR GUIDE FALL/WINTER 2014

OWN THE

SPIRIT No visit to Tucson is complete without shopping the widest selection of official Wildcat merchandise at UA BookStores. In addition to our flagship campus location, find us downtown, at Park Place Mall, and across southern Arizona. Visit uabookstores.arizona.edu/locations for a full list of locations and come catch the UA spirit!

We say “By UA, For UA� because every purchase you make at UA BookStores circulates money back into the UA and Tucson communities to support students, faculty, staff, and campus initiatives.
