Weekend picks: Johns Hopkins events roundup for May 12-14

The end of the school year is upon us, but not the end of campus events

There is not a doubt that a short Hulu binge or two-hour nap will creep its way into your study schedule this weekend. Why not spend some of that time seeing a show, supporting men's lacrosse in the NCAA tournament, or taking a deliberate study break? Not sure what to do? The Hub has some helpful suggestions.


Center for Visual Arts 2017 Studio Show
Friday, 3–6 p.m. | F. Ross Jones Building, Mattin Center
Support your peers as they showcase their best artwork during this annual exhibition. The 2017 Eugene Leake Award will be presented to seven graduating seniors at 4 p.m. Plus, there will be refreshments (i.e. free study break fuel).

The Salvatones: A Choral Ensemble
Friday, 7 p.m. | SS Phillip and James Catholic Church (JHU Catholic Center)
The Big Apple is coming to Charm City. The Salvatones—a choral ensemble under the direction of Daniel Brondel, the associate director of music at St. Patrick Cathedral in New York City—will present a concert titled "The Many Sounds of Spring." The show will feature a variety of choral and organ works.

'Plus Sign'
Friday and Saturday, 8 p.m. | Merrick Barn
Plus Sign tells the story of four college-age women who face the hardest decision of their lives. Put down your anatomy notes and go watch the show created by senior Elyse Anderson. Note: It contains sensitive topics.


Men's lacrosse: Duke at Johns Hopkins
Saturday, 2:30 p.m. | Homewood Field
The No. 6 seed Blue Jays (8-6) will face the Blue Devils (12-4) in an NCAA tournament first-round game. Throw on some Blue Jays gear and don't miss this important game. Tickets are only $5 with your J-card. Gates open at 1 p.m.


Study break with Student Leadership and Involvement
Friday, 3–5 p.m. | Mattin Center
Get a free back-rub from a massage therapist who can smooth out those hunching-over-your-computer-screen knots. There will also be candy to celebrate the end of the year.


Will you say yes to marriage equality in Taiwan?
Friday, 12 p.m. | Levering Courtyard
On May 24, Taiwan's Constitutional Court will release a ruling that could make same-sex marriage possible in Taiwan. Take a photo and sign your name to support Taiwanese activists. Help Taiwan become the #firstinAsia to recognize same-sex marriage.
