Three Opportunities This Friday

Robert C. May Photo Lecture @ UK,
Open Studio @ UK,
Open Mic, Open Walls @ the 930 Art Center, Louisville

The second Robert C. May Photo Lecture of the semester is this Friday in the UK Student Center, Worsham Theatre at 4 PM. Kael Alford will be speaking and showing her work as a photojournalist and war photographer. Her work will also be on display in UK's Art Museum from November 20, 2010-January 16, 2011.

Each year on the first Friday of December, the UK Fine Arts Department opens their doors to the public. It's a good chance to see what fellow students in the arts are up at a nearby university, meet and greet, and enjoy some food and music. Open studio is from 6-10 PM in the Reynolds Building, located at 349 Scott St (right off S. Broadway).

If you might be in Louisville and would like to show some of your work, the 930 Art Center is holding an "Open Mic, Open Walls" event. The 930 is a great space for art, music, writing, and even worship.

Here's a quote:
"The 930 is pleased to present an evening of creative sharing. In hopes to further our mission to encourage meaningful and beautiful art, music, and community we’re launching our first “Open Mic, Open Walls” event.

Many talented and creative people shy away from bringing their efforts out into the public realm. For fear of failure, or for lack of opportunity, much creative work gets left unheard and unseen. Open Mic, Open Walls hopes to create an atmosphere of encouragement to bring new art and music to the public surface.

This is an event for newbies, amateurs, and bigshots alike."

So I hope this Friday you find yourself involved in the arts. I plan to be.
