We have student opportunity for this Thursday, February 2. Professor Linny Frickman (Colorado State University) is the curator of the exhibition Scrimmage: Football in American Art from the Civil War to the Present, and will be visiting the Figge Art Museum at the end of the week. She is interested in giving a presentation about the exhibition to college-aged students around 1:30 pm at the Figge. In this presentation, she will talk about the intersections of art and sport, as demonstrated by the artworks in the exhibition. Linny's research also crosses over to issues about racism and sexism in sport, and the topic may interest other departments beyond the arts. Her presentation is one that she has shared with college students before, and with great success.
Starting this week, the art labs will be open Wednesday evenings (4-7pm) and weekends (11am-3pm) in addition to regular business hours when classes are not in session. On weekends, you will need to enter from building 3, at the entrance near public safety. Questions? Contact Kyle Petersen (email@example.com).
The artwork of Paul Lange is now on display in the ArtSpace Gallery on the first floor of Building 4 through Thursday, Feb. 9. Lange is a Quad-Cities design professional, BHC adjunct instructor and BHC alumnus.
The exhibit, “Inspiration from Drawing,” is an editorial illustration retrospective that includes original and printed art, rough conceptual sketches and descriptions of idea development. Everyone is invited to the artist reception Thursday, Jan. 26 from 4-6 p.m. at the gallery.
Classes are back in full swing in the Black Hawk College Art Department. Check the blog regularly for updates on class activities, art events in the community, and calls for entry among things.
"This is a great opportunity for design students, who want to work on their professional development, participate in a fun afternoon of free events and lunch. Students need to register online, along with the Behance account if they want to be considered as one of the participants in the 3-hour design tournament. As stated in the poster, you can register to get your portfolio reviewed, and participate in voting on the best designs from the competition. There will be enough going on, so even if you don’t participate in the portfolio review, or are not selected to participate in the tournament, it will still be worth their time. "
Get in touch with Kyle Petersen (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Zaiga Thorson (email@example.com) if you are interested i participating.
