April 25, 2014
Lansing, MICH – Aspiring artists with an eye for collegiate study can check out Lansing Community College's Art, Design and Multimedia program through a free weeklong celebration of the arts on the LCC campus.
The first annual Art Week will take place April 28 to May 2 on Washington Square between the Arts & Sciences and Gannon Buildings, and in Art, Design and Multimedia classrooms in the lower level of Gannon. Visitors to campus will have the chance to meet current faculty, students and staff in various campus art programs and participate in a range of artistic activities.
"Art Week is a way we can showcase the talents of our students and faculty, and provide a chance for prospective students to mix and mingle on campus," says Peter Tascarella, faculty member and event coordinator. "It's also a great way to get inspired, participate in creative activities, and think about what a future in the arts can hold."
Daily events include a sidewalk chalk drawing competition, open air sketching and painting classes, student and faculty exhibits, interactive displays and musical performances. A special movie night on Thursday, May 1, will also acquaint visitors with the art of film through a kaleidoscope of contemporary works by artists Matthew Barney, Gary Hill, Bill Viola, Arthur Ganson, Tim Hawkinson, William Kentridge, Paul Pfeiffer, Joan Jonas, Pipilotti Rist and more.
