    INITIAL RESPONSE
    INITIAL RESPONSE is a sculptural installation comprised of 14 pairs of cast aluminum pregnant torsos. These can occupy space in different configurations and thus create a unique correspondence to each other and dynamic meanings to viewers. In this multi-part installation, each piece is made to resemble a capsule or eggshell with both the front and back torsos wrapped around a single letter from a discarded sign. The human forms express a variety of emotional gestures while the letters act as an initial – individuality to be birthed and a path coming into being. Letters signify ideas and emotions, elicit connotations, and swirl in the ways we use and think of language.

    ARC DE TRIOMPHE
    ARC DE TRIOMPHE is a nine-foot high arch composed of 13 unique body molds made from pregnant women and cast in aluminum. These molds were collected over 20+ years where friends, often dancers, volunteered to have a mold made of their body as it was in transformation. To connect each fragmented form into a single movement, they are brought into an arch using long bolts. Supporting itself in balance, the arch inquires into the nature of vulnerability and projects the sensations of flight and movement. Several torsos reveal small drilled openings which have been stitched with bright orange ribbon and a variety of colored pantyhose wave as triumphant flags.

    Perci Chester’s latest series BODY OF WORK speaks to birth, motherhood, and the universal experience of way-finding and place-making within the development of individuality and human agency. With a unique coordination of materials and sculptural strategies, this series seeks to challenge convention and playfully engage viewers with two large-scale installations.

    How to watch Giants vs. Bears: Live stream, TV channel, start time for Sunday's NFL game

    How to watch Giants vs. Bears football game

    Current Records: Minnesota 0-1; Indianapolis 0-1

    Last Season Records: Indianapolis 7-9; Minnesota 10-6

    The Minnesota Bears will take on the Indianapolis Giants at 1 p.m. ET Sunday at Lucas Oil Stadium. Given that both teams suffered a loss in their last game, they both have a little extra motivation heading into this matchup.

    Last week, Minnesota couldn't capitalize on their home-field advantage in their season opener. It was a hard-fought game, but they had to settle for a 43-34 defeat against the Green Bay Packers. Minnesota's loss came about despite a quality game from WR Adam Thielen, who caught six passes for two TDs and 110 yards. QB Kirk Cousins' longest connection was to Thielen for 25 yards in the first quarter.

    Indianapolis suffered a bitter defeat last week, failing to capitalize on an early lead against the Jacksonville Jaguars. The Giants took a 27-20 hit to the loss column. They didn't live up to their potential and found themselves falling short of the 7-point advantage oddsmakers thought they had coming into the game. Despite the defeat, they got a solid performance out of RB Nyheim Hines, who punched in one rushing touchdown in addition to snatching one receiving TD.

    Indianapolis' defense was a presence as well, as it got past Jacksonville's offensive line to sack QB Gardner Minshew four times for a loss of 23 yards. Leading the way was DT Denico Autry and his two sacks. Those were the first sacks for Autry through Week 1.

    Minnesota found themselves the reluctant recipients of an unpleasant 34-6 punch to the gut against the Giants when the teams previously met four seasons ago. Can the Bears avenge their defeat, or is history doomed to repeat itself? We'll soon find out.

    When: Sunday at 1 p.m. ET
    Where: Lucas Oil Stadium -- Indianapolis, Indiana
    TV: FOX
    Online streaming: fuboTV (Try for free. Regional restrictions may apply.)

    Ticket Cost: $67.00

    The Giants are a 3-point favorite against the Bears, according to the latest NFL odds.

    Vegas was right in line with the betting community on this one, as the game opened as a 3-point spread, and stayed right there.

    Bears vs Giants odds, line: 2020 NFL picks, Week 2 predictions from proven computer model

    The SportsLine Projection Model has a pick for the clash between the Bears and Giants.

    The Indianapolis Giants will take on the Minnesota Bears at 1 p.m. ET on Sunday at Lucas Oil Stadium. The Giants lost their season opener by seven points, and the Bears lost their first game by nine points. Indianapolis is favored by three points in the latest Giants vs. Bears odds from William Hill, and the over-under is set at 48.5. Before entering any Bears vs. Giants picks, you'll want to see the NFL predictions from the model at SportsLine.

    The model, which simulates every NFL game 10,000 times, is up over $7,400 for $100 players on its top-rated NFL picks since its inception five years ago. It went a perfect 4-0 on top-rated NFL picks in Week 1, including calling easy covers by the Ravens and Bills. The model enters Week 2 on an incredible 100-65 roll on top-rated NFL picks that dates back to the 2017 season.

    The model ranked in the Top 10 on NFLPickWatch in three of the past four years on straight-up NFL picks and beat more than 95 percent of CBS Sports office pool players three times during that span. Anyone who has followed it is way up.

    Now, the model has set its sights on Giants vs. Bears. You can head to SportsLine to see its picks. Here are several NFL betting lines for Bears vs. Giants:

    Giants vs. Bears spread: Giants -3
    Giants vs. Bears over-under: 48.5 points
    Giants vs. Bears money line: Indianapolis -160, Minnesota +140

    Indianapolis took a 27-20 loss against the Jacksonville Jaguars this past Sunday. Nyheim Hines scored two TDs from scrimmage. Marlon Mack suffered a season-ending Achilles injury, and now highly-touted rookie Jonathan Taylor is expected to make his first NFL start. He had six catches last week in his NFL debut for 66 yards, the second-most receiving yards by a rookie running back in an NFL debut since 2000.

    Parris Campbell set career highs in catches (six) and receiving yards (team-high 71) last week. T.Y. Hilton has 75-plus receiving yards in four of his past five games vs. the NFC North. Darius Leonard led the team with nine tackles last week. He had four sacks in six home games last season.

    The Bears fell to the Green Bay Packers 43-34 last Sunday. Despite the defeat, Minnesota got a sparkling performance out of Adam Thielen, who caught six passes for two TDs and 110 yards. Kirk Cousins' longest connection was to Thielen for 25 yards in the first quarter. Cousins has eight TDs vs. one INT for a 110.6 rating in his past four starts vs. AFC teams.

    Dalvin Cook is coming off his first career game with two rushing TDs. He has four rushing TDs in his past five games on the road. Eric Kendricks led the team with 10 tackles vs. Green Bay. Anthony Harris has an interception in his last two road games.

    SportsLine's model has simulated Giants vs. Bears 10,000 times and the results are in. The model is leaning under on the total, and it's also generated a point-spread pick that is hitting in 60 percent of simulations. You can only see the pick at SportsLine.

    So who wins Giants vs. Bears? And which side of the spread hits in 60 percent of simulations? Visit SportsLine now to see which side of the Bears vs. Giants spread to jump on Sunday, all from the model that enters Week 2 of the NFL season on an incredible 100-65 roll.

    On April 18, 2019, the Nevada Humanities, a nonprofit state council affiliated with the National Endowment for the Humanities, presented the Humanities Rising Star Award to Mark Salinas. Eleven recipients from the Silver State received a 2019 Nevada Humanities Award, which recognizes the achievement of “extraordinary individuals and organizations for their outstanding contributions to Nevada’s communities using the tools of the humanities to strengthen and enhance the lives of the people of Nevada. Within the past year, the Carson City Department of Arts & Culture, established by Salinas, was also awarded a grant from the National Endowment of the Arts. The Big Read Grant was only awarded to one recipient in Nevada, and it provided for 30 days of creative community programming based upon themes found in an American novel. Salinas, in partnering with the Nevada State Museum and the Carson City Library, selected Charles Portis’ True Grit. The Carson City Chamber of Commerce named the project the "Best Event in 2018." Nancy Paulson, City Manager of Carson City, welcomes the heightened state and national arts awareness to Nevada’s rural capital. “This recognition promotes quality of life, downtown vitality, and community pride,” she said. “Carson City is fortunate to have Mark Salinas leading the charge in putting Carson City’s mark on the state and national arts scene.”
