Russell, Loving lead Buckeyes to blowout of No. 16 Maryland, 80-56

January 29, 2015
Another slow start and another ink-drying night for D’Angelo Russell. It’s become the norm for the Ohio State men’s basketball team as the freshman guard filled up the box score and led the Buckeyes to a 80-56 win against No. 16 Maryland on Thursday night at the Schottenstein Center. Freshman forward Jae’Sean Tate said the victory was a result of OSU’s best performance of the season. “We had great energy from the start. I think this was the best start we’ve gotten off to in a while,” Tate said after the game. “Great energy off the bench, everybody just played hard and played their role.” Russell totaled 18 points, 14… Read more

New lineup brings results as Buckeyes win 3rd-straight game

January 29, 2015
The Ohio State men’s basketball team stood at 14-5, 3-3 just eight days ago when coach Thad Matta decided to make a change to the starting lineup. Since then, the Buckeyes are 3-0, including back-to-back wins against top-25 teams at home, the most recent an 80-56 shellacking of the No. 16 Maryland Terrapins on Thursday night. Matta flipped senior center Amir Williams and sophomore forward Marc Loving in favor of redshirt-senior forward Anthony Lee and freshman forward Jae’Sean Tate, and the Buckeyes haven’t looked back. Matta said the reason for the switch was more a matter of Tate’s improved play than a lack of contribution from Loving. “We felt that… Read more

Sculptures jump, swing from the rafters in Ohio Union

January 29, 2015
Earlier this month, the Ohio Union got a high-flying addition. Looking up toward the ceiling of the Great Hall, one might notice two white figures posing in the rafters. These figures are sculptures titled “Circus Acrobats,” created by pop art sculptor George Segal. The piece was a permanent donation to Ohio State by the George and Helen Segal Foundation and was installed Jan. 5. “Circus Acrobats” follows the style of many of Segal’s most famous works, which are castings. He used bronze to cast the models in sections and then let them harden. After taking the hardened molds off, he would form them back together to create his sculptures. In… Read more

Film explores social depictions of labor on money

January 29, 2015
Ohio-born, Los Angeles-based artist William E. Jones presents paper currency from all around the world. His film, titled “Model Workers,” brings color and perspective to currency. The film focuses on currency art that depicts human labor, Jones said in an email, adding that the bills tended to come from poorer and socialist countries. “These countries may be proud of their traditional agriculture or of industrial development, but what they have in common is the decision to honor not ‘great men’ but working people on their money,” Jones said. Jones began his relationship with the Wexner Center in 1991. Since then, he has made numerous visits to the Wex to work… Read more
