In an effort to raise awareness of the arts in Cincinnati (and have a lot of fun) volunteers came together for a surprise dance in downtown Cinci. Hundreds of people volunteered and the music is all from local bands.

You can watch the video and learn more about the project at the FineArtsFund blog.

Art:21 Prescreening Tuesday, Sept. 29

Georgetown College Hosts “Art-21” prescreening Tuesday, September 29:
Georgetown College, in conjunction with PBS, is hosting a prescreening of Art:21–Art in the Twenty-First Century, Season 5 Episode 1 (Compassion). The event will be held in the Anne Wright Wilson Fine Arts Building (on the corner of Mulberry and College St, Georgetown KY) beginning at 6 p.m. on September 29, 2009. There is no cost of admission for this event. The prescreening will be followed with a performance by this semester’s Performance and Installation Special Topics class.

Guests will be encouraged to come early or stay late and view student and faculty works that will be on display as well as visit our three galleries on campus: the Anne Wright Wilson Fine Arts Gallery featuring Sculptural Perspectives: 3d work from Ohio Wesleyan University Faculty; the Cochenour Gallery featuring Thorney Lieberman: Honoring America's Coal Miners; and the Dr. Donald L. and Dorothy Jacobs Gallery featuring an eclectic collection of modern and contemporary works of art by international, national and regional artists, along with an outstanding collection of antiquities.

A little more information about Art 21 the Series:
“Art:21–Art in the Twenty-First Century” is the only series on television to focus exclusively on contemporary visual art and artists in the United States, and it uses the medium of television to provide an experience of the visual arts that goes far beyond a gallery visit. Fascinating and intimate footage allows the viewer to observe the artists at work, watch their process as they transform inspiration into art, and hear their thoughts as they grapple with the physical and visual challenges of achieving their artistic visions. To date, 72 artists in the series demonstrate the breadth of artistic practice in the United States today. Each one-hour program is loosely organized around a theme helps audiences analyze, compare and juxtapose the artists profiled.

Episode Compassion (to air nationally October 7) features the work of William Kentridge, Doris Salcedo, and Carrie Mae Weems. See it first at Georgetown College on Tuesday, September 29, 2009!

Megan has a cross to bear

I had to share this picture taken during the cleanup of our newly renovated sculpture yard. Megan and Joel were moving an old metal cross that has been in our scrap area for at least 4 years. Its now reclaimed and the metal is able to be reused but it was a funny moment of Megan having a cross to bear, good thing Joel was there to help.

Don't forget to come to ART for Lunch on Thursday at noon. It will be fantastic.

New to Georgetown College

I am happy to introduce Milly to you she is new to Georgetown College but is already excited to be here. She is kinda shy so see Professor Graham for a proper introduction. She looks forward to working with all of us here in the Georgetown College Visual Arts department.

"Milly" is a Microlux mini tilt table saw and is 11-1/2 inches x 9-1/2 inches so basically a size of a sheet of notebook paper.

Art for Lunch

Join us this Thursday, September 24 at noon for pizza and presentations. A few of your fellow students will be sharing their unique art experiences and overseas travel as we enjoy a free lunch. So mark your calendars to be to be at the WAB Thursday for dejeuner.
