AMUM Presents Operation: Human Intelligence

Operation: Human Intelligence, this fall's featured exhibition at the Art Museum of the University of Memphis, delves into the areas of intelligence, counterintelligence and the creative process. Curated by the CIA, the exhibit premiered at the Hyde Park Art Center in Chicago in collaboration with the Contemporary Arts Council.

AMUM traditionally offers exhibitions that challenge accepted ideas about art's role in society. Works in Operation: Human Intelligence promise to provoke debate and foster dialogue.

The opening reception is set for Friday, Sept. 19, from 5 to 7 p.m. At 6:30 p.m., a representative of the CIA will speak and answer questions. The exhibit runs from Sept. 20 to Nov. 8.

For more details on Operation: Human Intelligence and other exhibits, visit the AMUM Web site at http://www.amum.org.

"The Jazz Lover" 91.7 to Hold Radiothon

WUMR FM 91.7 starts its first Radiothon Sept. 21-27. Gifts will fund a salaried director of programming position to build the station's quality programming. Donations will also supplement the station's operational budget, which was slashed by major cuts in state funding.

Supporters will receive CDs, coffee mugs and concert tickets, and prominent local jazz lovers will make special on-air appearances during the Radiothon.

WUMR is the only noncommercial classic jazz station in Memphis. Known as "The Jazz Lover," the 25,000-watt station broadcasts within a 60-mile radius of Memphis. Its playlist blends contemporary and traditional jazz with a sampling of fusion, Latin and New Age music.

The station serves as a training ground for students, providing tomorrow's broadcasters with hands-on experience, and as the voice of the U of M.
