An Exquisite FutureMonday, January 12
11am–Noon
Gelman Library, Room 219

The Corcoran School of the Arts and Design and the Art and the Book program cordially invite you to the launch of An Exquisite Future, the fifth annual collaborative artist’s book by Art and the Book graduate students. Please join us!

An Exquisite Future explores the implications of a future with a reduced population of honeybees. A vital pollinator of many types of food plants for humans and animals, honeybees are in danger of disappearing because of colony collapse disorder. The artists used this phenomenon as a starting point for contemplating the future. Each artist responded to the preceding vision, building on what came before and using humor while considering potential difficulties.

Paris Summer Study Abroad

Summer Study Abroad: TRDA 4595w

Professor Mary Buckley & Librarian Bill Gillis
June 3-16, 2015

Paris-City of Lights, City of Love, Cultural Capital, Moveable Feast: Earnest Hemingway wrote to a friend, "If you are lucky enough to have lived in Paris as a young man, then where ever you go for the rest of your life, it stays with you, for Paris is a moveable feast."  Study abroad in Paris this summer and enjoy the feast.  This course, now in its 10th year, will explore the journey of Picasso, Diaghilev, Kertesz, Stravinsky, and others who forged artistic collaborations and established Paris as the center of Modernist thought in the early 20th century.  Visiting museums, touring iconic architectural sites and viewing contemporary performance spaces, today's art will be measured against the past.
