Welcome back!

by

Welcome back everyone! Sadly, our too-short summer break has ended but there is plenty to look forward to during the 2011-2012 academic year. This Fall Quarter, you can check out the Art History Colloquium “Art Between Europe & Asia in the First Age of Global Trade” on Friday, September 30th at 3:00 pm (see previous post).  Other events include “Birds: A Kinetic Installation” at the Nelson Gallery, opening on September 29 and running through December 11. “Birds” will display the computer-driven kinetic sculpture of Brooklyn-based artist Chico MacMurtrie. The Design Museum, relocated to Creuss Hall, will present the installation work of Robert Gaylor in “Gyre, A Grand Tragedy of the Commons” (October 10 to December 2). And stayed tuned for the annual Art Studio Visiting Artist Series which will be start this Fall Quarter. More information to come when we get it.

This was a busy summer in the VRF but we did manage to add new material to online catalog. For example, we added gorgeous images of the Modena and Parma Cathedrals taken by Lisa Zdybel last spring, and photos of “Crested Oak,” a site-specific sculpture created by landscape architecture student John Gainey for the Arboretum. Our hours remain the same as usual — Fall Quarter hours are 8:00 am to 4:00 pm Monday through Thursday and Friday by appointment. We hope to see you in the VRF soon.
