Don’t miss the MICHAEL MAZUR print retrospective at the Cantor Arts Center. The exhibit, open through Sept. 10, covers 40 years of Mazur’s work embracing expressionism, realism and abstraction. Images of patients in a psychiatric ward, elegant but sinister flowers, a triptych devoted to the imaginary chaos caused during the 1978 Jonestown Massacre and colorful, floral scenes are just some of the monotype prints on display. The New England artist recently told a group of visitors to his show that he enjoys the final artistic product more than the technical process involved in its creation. It’s like cooking, he says. “I want to taste the food. I’m less interested in how it was put together.”

Hundreds of openings will be showcased today at the Administrative Job Fair in Tresidder from 4 to 7 p.m., says coordinator TOM CASTILLO. Jobs ranging from administrative associates to food service workers are available. For more information, log onto http://jobs.stanford.edu or call 723-1888.

FIRST IT WAS THE TONGAN OLYMPIC TEAM, then the Mongolian. This Sept-ember, CHRIS SPALDING, a physical therapy assistant at Cowell Student Health Service, will go to Sydney as the chief medical officer for the American Samoa Olympic team. “These are the people who need help the most,” said Spalding, who has specialized in supporting Olympic teams from small places since the 1988 Seoul Games. “They need someone who has been around the block.” Spalding, who also has worked for the U.S. Olympic team, expects Samoa to send about seven athletes, including a female hammer thrower and an archer. He has underscored his loyalty to the team by tattooing a tribal tapa pattern on his left arm. He also has the Olympic rings tattooed on his left ankle.

Join staffers on July 4 for a potluck barbecue and a chance to watch Redwood City’s splashy fireworks up close from the Marine Science Institute on the bay. Open to staff members, their friends and kids, the event kicks off at 5:30 p.m. Fire-works start at sundown. Bring salads, side dishes, soft drinks and anything to be barbecued, says Staffers’ CRISTEN OSBORNE. The staff group will provide hotdogs, buns, condiments, utensils and dessert. The institute will provide coal and grills. Alcohol and personal fireworks are not allowed. Participants must RSVP to Osborne at cjosborne@stanford.edu by tomorrow, June 29, to gain access to the site. For directions, log onto http:// www.sfbaymsi.org/locatio.htm
