Written by Ashleigh Cox

KAM from the outside!

I went to the Krannert Art Museum’s first-ever Art Talk and learned a lot about African Art and it’s movement throughout the Western world. The curator talked about several pieces from different regions as well as their significance to the cultures they originally came from.

Moving with Art

Jennifer Monson Talking to us at the beginning of the workshop.

On Thursday October 3rd at the Krannert Art Museum we went to a dance Workshop taught by Jennifer Monson. This experience was unlike any other and it felt very freeing and liberating. I had never gone to a dance workshop and going to this one was unlike anything I thought it would be.

My Great Adventure in FAA 110!

Written by Alyssa Pappas

My transition into my new major of Atmospheric Sciences I knew would not be an easy one. With my schedule being increasingly difficult, I knew that I had wanted to add a class that would have nothing to do with my major and that could act as a breath of fresh air. That is when I discovered FAA 110!  Some of my friends had recommended it to me so I wanted to give it a shot. I could not have been happier with my decision! I got the chance to attend different events, involving the Arts, that I would never have been able to experience outside of taking this class.  Throughout the length of this course I learned so many things and got to see a whole new world away from my science one.  Here are the events that I attended that taught me so much, as well as pictures and links to my blogs to go along with them.

My experience with being in this class is one that can never be duplicated.  With many lessons learned involving: how many different forms of Art there is, how a class doesn’t need to be just lectures and tests, and how important it is to be courageous and attend events I have never been to before.  I plan on keeping up with this experience by continuously putting myself out there and going to events that I wouldn’t typically go to.  That even though my life is heavily based around math and science, I will still make time for myself and not let life pass me by without experiencing as many different performances as possible.

 

Breaking the Sterotype

 


Prior to leaving for Thanksgiving Break, I had the opportunity to attend yet another show at the Krannert Center for the Performing Arts. I must say I have come to enjoy the performances that I go see each week. This particular performance by Cynthia Oliver titled, “Virago-Man Dem,” was something unexpected but quite intriguing by the message it left behind.
