Proposals for funding have been submitted and we are awaiting approval. Funding has been requested for guest speakers, A Clean Poorly Lighted Space, and a trip to Chicago and Rochester for next spring.
At this point, a trip to Chicago is likely to be planned for the end of spring semester 09.
Jenna Weiler gave an informative talk about the portfolio review she attended lately in Chicago. The portfolio review is open to the public and it is exceptional in quality. Check the Chicago Portfolio Review post for more information and links.
FAA is planning another trip to Chicago in the fall of 2009 to attend the portfolio review. This gives one ample time to think about attending and preparing a portfolio.
A Clean Poorly Lighted Space will host a movie showing. This involves playing a movie in the space accompanied by a curatorial statement. Candidates for the film included: Titanic and Jurassic Park. Jumanji was suggested at the meeting and was chosen as the film.
Another Art Critique date has been set for Thursday December 4. This is conveniently before finals week. Get feedback on your work. This is a great way to be exposed to what’s happening among your peers and be able to interact with other areas of the department.
Spread the word, to make the critique turnout as dynamic and helpful as possible!
Always utilize classes and professors as outlets to communicate to the student body. Communication and community are very important!
School Portraits are scheduled for December 1,2,3 (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday) from 10am-3pm. Efforts are being made to acquire a background as well lighting equipment. If anyone has any serious know hows about set up please feel free to participate.
This is being offered SCHOOL WIDE. People need to know about it. It is free. Hand outs and posters will be available in the advanced sculpture studio spaces in Coley’s desk by Tuesday or Wednesday of this week. Pick some up and spread it around. Again, tell classes.
