Olympic champion skaters Oleg and Ludmila Protopopov will be featured in a special Gala Ice Skating Exhibition, scheduled at 5 p.m., Sunday, Oct. 29, in the Rust Ice Arena.
Scheduled during the University's annual Homecoming weekend, the performance marks the Protopopovs' return to Delaware in their first campus appearance since 1989.

Tickets for the exhibition are $15 for the general public, $10 for seniors and per person for groups of 10 or more and $8 for students and children and are on sale now at UD box offices and through Ticketmaster.

After a successful amateur career that won them top awards around the world, the Protopopovs skated with the Leningrad Ice Ballet Company, but after years of artistic constraint in the company and political pressure, they won political asylum in Switzerland in 1979. For the next two years, they performed with the Ice Capades. Since then, they have performed in exhibitions around the world and, in the 1980s, produced a video of themselves performing 20 dances choreographed to classical music.

Native American art collection previewed in gallery show
Caribou Shaman, by Simona Scottie, from the Frederick and Lucy S. Herman Collection
The University of Delaware recently acquired the Frederick and Lucy S. Herman Native American Art Collection.
The Hermans, of Norfolk, Va., are veteran collectors of drawings by important American and European artists, some dating back to the 15th century. Almost 15 years ago, the Hermans also developed a strong interest in Inuit art, attracted by drawings that compellingly depicted a society on the verge of transition. Until recently, the Inuits were a semi-nomadic people who roamed from British Columbia to the Arctic Circle.
Although known as carvers of whalebone and soapstone, it was not until the late 1940s and early 1950s that the Inuits were introduced to the concept of drawing as a "make work" project of the Canadian government.
The first 28 drawings from the collection arrived on campus this spring. These works will be showcased in the exhibition, "The Story Teller's Hand: Inuit Drawings from the Frederick and Lucy S. Herman Collection of Native American Art," which will run from Oct.19-Dec.18.
In connection with the exhibition, Judith Nasby, an Inuit art expert and director of the Macdonald Stewart Art Centre in Guelph, Ontario, will talk about the works in the Macdonald Stewart collection and the significance of the Herman Native American collection, from 4-5 p.m., Thursday, Oct. 19, in Room 101 Recitation Hall. A part of the Delaware Seminar Lecture Series, her talk is sponsored by the Winterthur Program in Early American Culture and the Department of Art History.
An opening reception will follow her lecture from 5-7 p.m. in the University Gallery.
A major exhibition of the entire collection is slated for 2003, in observance of the United Nations' "Decade of the World's Indigenous People" and the University Gallery's 25th anniversary.
When they first discovered Inuit art, the Hermans, with the expert guidance of the late Joe Murphy of the Inuit Art Gallery in Vancouver, began educating themselves about the lives of these native artists, and began acquiring works by masters like Irene Avaalaaqiaq and Jessie Oonark of Baker Lake and Pitseolak Ashoona of Cape Dorset.
The Hermans' Inuit drawings, which now number almost 200 and make up the majority of works in their Native American art collection, portray the Inuits' everyday lives and traditions over the span of three generations. There are scenes of their hunts, the wildlife in their environment, their rituals, myths and legends. Increasingly evident in the work collected in the 1990s is the emerging awareness and influence of modern life in the 20th century. These images share a unique artistic perspective and, as importantly, serve as critical anthropological documents that chronicle a quickly vanishing culture.
In seeking a permanent home for their collection, the Hermans were impressed by the recent establishment of UD's Center for American Material Cultural Studies, continuing a UD tradition of interdisciplinary studies, and the University Gallery's commitment to teaching students the standards and practices of the museum profession by using collections for hands-on way training.
It is the Hermans' intention for their collection to be used extensively by faculty in the development and delivery of curriculum to give UD students the opportunity to learn about Inuit culture through their art. The Hermans also support access to the collection by teachers and school children throughout the state.
Other programs associated with the exhibition include "Introducing the Inuit," a Children's Walk and Talk Art Workshop for ages 8 through 12, from 1-2:30 p.m., Saturday, Nov. 18; and "Inuit Art in the Herman Collection," a brown bag lunch lecture by Bernard Herman, art history and director of the Center for American Material Culture Studies, at noon, Wednesday, Dec. 6.
For information, call the University Gallery at 831- 8242.

Walkowitz' drawings of Isadora Duncan on exhibit
An exhibition, "Line Dance: Abraham Walkowitz' Drawings of Isadora Duncan," opens at the University Gallery on Oct. 19 and will run through Dec. 17.
The gallery's permanent holdings include nearly 1,500 drawings and other objects from the estate of Russian-born artist, Abraham Walkowitz (1878-1965), given by New York art dealer Virginia Zabriskie in 1993. Of these, 400 drawings are of the great modern dancer Isadora Duncan.
The exhibition will include an estimated 100 works on papermany of which have never before been exhibited. Representing many media including pencil, pastel, watercolor, charcoal, ink and oil studiesthese drawings and studies demonstrate Walkowitz' thoughts on the very foundations of modernism. He realized that linear and formal expression was not limited to abstraction, but to the ways line could define emotion as well as structure.
This exhibition will evaluate Walkowitz as an interpreter of the new American modernism. The Isadora drawings manifest this expression, but, in their own right, open a dialog to viewers about modernism in dance and the struggles apparent in communicating this movement in the early 20th century to the mostly puritanical American audiences.
In conjunction with the exhibition, numerous interpretive programs have been developed. Highlighted will be Janaea Rose Lyn, of Elkton, Md., a third generation Duncan dancer and historian, who will present a slide/lecture presentation of her archival collection entitled "The Legacy of Isadora" at the Trabant University Center Theatre on Oct. 21. A reception will begin at 5 p.m., followed by the lecture that will conclude at 9 p.m.
She also will perform on Nov. 19 as guest artist with the University Gallery's collaborating partner, the Mid-Atlantic Ballet of Newark, in a program of Duncan repertoire, which features the majestic Andante Con Moto from Shubert's Symphony No. 9 and Brahms' Waltz Op. 39 #15.
Children's workshops are being designed that will explain the concepts behind modern art and dance. Children will tour the exhibition and then have the opportunity to use the tools of Walkowitzpastel, pencil, ink and watercolorto think about Walkowitz' expressive line that articulated, physically, his expression of American modernism.
Films related to Isadora Duncan, special guided tours, a teachers' workshop and other adult programming also are planned to enhance the visitors' experiences, including:
