Jim White Documentary

No it's not an April Fools Day prank. We are watching "Searching for the Wrong-Eyed Jesus" at 7:00pm in the Gomache Theatre in the Student Center. I hope your sketchbooks are looking good. I emailed everyone the GRANT application. Please consider filling one out. You need to stop by Simple G's before next Monday with measurements or the actual work so that Steve knows what is heading his way. We can deliver the day of only if it's simple install. If it isn't you'll need to make arrangements with Steve. 827-9997. See you on Weds. I'll be in S-3 during the regular time so folks needing the woodshop can work. I'll head over to the theatre at around 6:30 to get set-up for the film.

O.K. Here goes

Monday Night the 23rd @ 6:00-Ken Mcmillian metal workshop. Studio time up until then. Bring Cuttle bones(at least 2) Target, Walmart, Pet Co. You will fail the class if you don't have them(I'm barely kidding) since we've talked about it since the early 1970's.
April 1st at 7:00 pm in the Gomache Theatre we'll be watching Searching for the Wrong Eyed Jesus. The studio will be open and available from 4:45-6:45 for making ART.
April 8th is Exhibit(sketchbooks on Spring Break-I'll hav esome Uses Time Wisely Stickers for a lucky few!!!!) at Simple Gestures-Start the Media Circus; PSA press release posters etc. Invite everyone!!!!! FACEBOOK, Mailing list from last show. Sertoma Thrift store would be a great place for flyers. Simple G's should be getting flyers ASAP to put in every customers bag that shop's there btwn now and then. MUSIC? are we gonna have any.
It's not to early to start thinking about your installation for the cubby(tubby) exhibit. Flyers for that exhibit should be handed out at the April 8th show!!!!! That date was pushed to the 15th of April.
Keep reading the book. Post on the Blog for next week about the next 10 pages. I think that'll put us up to 24(there's only like 40) ALso I am keeping track of the fact that almost noone is blogging when they're supposed to about the book.(no big deal only 5 points per entry however it could make the difference between a grade level) Everyone has an A on first project( I said that in class after the first show) so you should feel in the dark about your grade. If you do Please come have a chat.
Malea's visit was cool- I'll help facilitate that project. Extra credit will be given for anyone interested in installing the piece out in Hastings. I'll confirm date and times with Malea. Perhaps we could come up with some preliminary sketches soon to run by her.
That about does it. Obviously ya'll are looking and taking note of Living contemporary artists to remedy poor performance on Pre-Final exam for the final exam.
Elizabeth Murray, Franz West, Dennis Hopper, Ed Ruscha, Gillian Wearing, Pippolitti Rist, Elizabeth Peyton, The Starn Twins, Jake and Dinos Chapman, Greely Myatt, Gregg Schlanger, Kara Walker, Red Feather, SimpARC, Turquios Mountain, Art Chantry, Chip Kidd, Steve Mcqeen(sp?)are a few folks that you might want to check out.
Have a great Spring Break. Have Fun, Be Safe, Make ART!!!

Mary is ripping stuff down using a jig cause it's like this and like that and like this and uh. We talked about Cuttle Bones and the in-class metal project. I'm trying to reschedule with Ken for the 23rd or the 25th. I'll keep ya'll posted. Sketchbooks are gonna sneak up on ya if you're not careful. Also you need to keep looking at artist. I'll give you a list. William Pope.L, Tracey Emin, Sarah Sze, Sarah Lucas, David Altmedj(SP?), Wayde Guyton, Kelley Walker etc. etc.

Movie night and a delightful coup

So everyone should get two one dollar food items from the dollar store and also roll with your creativity the evening of the event. We will meet at 4:45pm at the Crisp-Ellert Art Museum(CEAM).
The 2x4 project has officially changed. On Monday we will take a look at the small(8inch 1in=1ft) pieces that each of you are working on. This should give you some ideas about the larger project.
Also read the next 10 pages of the book and post about it. SKETCHBOOKS!!!!!!!!!!!!(friendly reminder)
Good class tonight,
