From Our Former Dear Leader Zach’s almost name twin Zach Scheinfeld ’16:
On Sunday from 1-4pm Art House will be hosting it’s second crafts fair! The event will feature work in many mediums including drawings, woodblock prints, etchings, zines, and much much more! There will also be several sets of live music and plenty of yummy food.
Remember – sales do not necessarily have to be monetary. Artists will set their own prices; whether their drawing sells for $10, two dinners, a print in return, or any other form of trade is up to them. Come by with friends and a couple of bucks to support our artists and Green St. Arts Center.
We are still taking submissions up until November 20th. Email srenjilian(at)wesleyan(dot)edu. ALL art/crafts welcome!
Date: Sunday, November 22nd
Place: Art House
Some of the mysterious fabric strips tied to a Wesleyan emergency call box in the CFA
If you’re anything like me, you may have noticed a new addition to Wesleyan’s campus this fall. Is it a message from the squirrels? The aliens announcing their impending arrival on Foss? An underground side-mission in the Tour de Franzia? I sat down with the artist Jess Cummings ’17 to get to the bottom of the curious incident of the fabric in the night-time(/daytime/anytime).
