Lecture series reaches across disciplines

A lecture series inaugurated this fall is bringing in speakers to discuss issues that affect students in all the four departments at the School of Art: painting/printmaking, sculpture, photography, and graphic design. The series is part of a movement to bring together the various media and encourage interaction among the traditionally siloed disciplines. The Monday Night Lecture Series is held in 36 Edgewood and features such speakers as Marie Lorenz ’02MFA, Peter Galassi, and Bill Berkson.

Faculty make do for fall show

In the spirit of past “Making Do” shows, School of Art faculty were invited to take part in a fall exhibition that emphasized aesthetic vitality and modest means. “Hands Off/Hands On” offered faculty the opportunity to exhibit an existing work or create a new one—with total freedom in method, format, and medium—and to “do more with less while casting fate to the winds,” according to associate dean Sam Messer, who curated the show. “Hands Off/Hands On” was on view through November 8.
