There’s a ton of stuff happening in the next week or so. First up is the Pete Froslie artist talk tonight, and then you can roll into daily artsy-type events for the next four days, if you so desire:
Thursday, Sept. 24: Reception and lecture 5:00-7:00pm in the Tahoe Gallery. Lecture 5:15pm in rm 320 (Prim library). If you’ve checked out the show and wondered what the connection is between wood maps, bloodstains, jazz, and an elderly gentleman with a chainsaw, here’s your chance to ask some questions. Answers are not guaranteed.
Friday, Sept. 25: This event is being put together by the English Program: Pulitzer prize winning writer, Bob Hass, and fellow poet, Brenda Hillman, will be on campus reading from their books this Friday from 7:00-9:00 in TCES 139. Free and open to all. Here’s a link to Hass’ poem “Dragonflies Mating”; and a link to Hilman’s poem “Little Furnace.”
Sat & Sun, Sept. 26-26: Candy Dance! The Art Department will be flipping burgers at this event, which takes over the picturesque town of Genoa for a weekend once a year — it’s a mindbogglingly extensive arts & crafts faire (it always makes me feel funny to put an “e” on the end of the word “fair,” but that’s the way they do it). We make a bit of cash for the department, and in the process make our peace with sizzling grease.
