FAA meeting Friday September 26, 2008
@ Raw Deal
We made about $127 which is pretty good considering the turnout
(and the competition in bikinis down the road).
A few pics are up in the blog.
The general consensus for the logo design is the devil logo with “UW-Stout” .
A final design has not been selected. That vote will take place next meeting.
Bring a design if you want. An email will be going out this week with the stipulations for the design as well as a copy of the blue devil logo.
White shirts will be ordered asap. Feel free to donate white tshirts or tank tops.
We’re looking into a lab on campus that would allow us to print many shirts fast. which would be awesome.
After a location is set, a date will be decided for production day.
Again, if anyone knows anything that would be helpful…speak speak please.
Student advistory meeting***
There is a meeting coming up called the student advisory meeting.
The administrative body meets with student organizations and talks about issues or possible changes to be made in the department or institution.
This means YOU can be heard!
The FAA will represent you at the meeting. Think about changes or issues that you would like discussed. Post your ideas on the blog so others can see and discuss it as well or email your thoughts to Jennie, Cheyenne, and/or Coley.
(2 of these 3 will be representing FAA…email addresses are listed below)
The meeting is the 30th..that’s this Tuesday…so think and discuss!
Some things mentioned during the meeting:
-issues with the student gallery restrictions and perhaps a need for curating.
-the improvement of studio spaces for studio majors (particularly painting)
There was also a brief explosive discussion of issues with the process lab “administration”.

The show will be in mid october.
More information on gallery involvement will be available as soon as it is available…
The new FAA treasurer is Jennifer Steindl.

FAA used to curate the end of the year show.
The FAA will be looking into possibly curating a show in the student gallery or the like.
A meeting with Sue Hunt will be in order.
We discussed the curriculum requirements within the art department and some opinions were expressed regarding the amount of writing required (or not required) of art majors, such as artist statements.
This is something that may be brought up at the student advisory meeting.
Some are interested in setting up a day to photograph work and/or have instruction on how to photograph work. Anyone interested in getting this together is welcome to.
