Happy Friday everyone! I’ve tried writing this post about three times with various different topics and can’t decide on one, so I’m just going to spill out all of my thoughts and ideas regarding things I’m excited about.
Graph Rabbit: As I mentioned Monday, Graph Rabbit was set to perform here this week, and they had a show last night. I took pictures during the show, and afterward the lead singer introduced himself to me, inquired about my photos, and asked that I send them to the band. I also discussed art history with him briefly, told him about my blog, and helped the band carry their equipment out to their van after the show. So yeah, I’m like best friends with rock stars.
Half Price Books: This afternoon my friend Matt and I went to Half Price Books. I had only vaguely heard of this store before, but let me tell you, it was glorious. It is a huge store full of really cheap books, magazines, CDs, and movies. Plus it’s just really cozy and cool. I bought a Kooks CD and Tina Fey’s book for a total of $4. What more could you ask for?!
First Fridays: Every first Friday of the month, various art galleries in the area are open and feature local artists. This evening, me and several of my classmates have work featured in some of these shows, so we are going out to dinner and going to the galleries, and I’m really excited about it. I’ll either make a video or blog post recounting the evening sometime next week.
High School Friends: This morning as I was walking to class, I saw one of my friends from high school who was here for an interview for the art program. It was such an unexpected surprise to see her and I loved it, especially since she’s applying to the art program.
Art Now: Next Tuesday from 5-7p.m. and Wednesday from 9a.m.-5p.m., the annual student art show, Art Now, will be in the Reilly Room. It is really awesome and all of us art students have been working our butts off to get ready for the show. We may or may not have been in the studio till 3 a.m. or later every night this week.
Losing My Mind: All of my final projects and papers are due next week, and Art Now is next week, so I’ve had minimal sleep and am slowly going insane. So that’s fun.
Have a great weekend, come to Art Now, and thanks for reading
