Vernon Thommeret ’10 is spearheading a team of students who aim to make an accurate and pleasing model of Wesleyan’s campus to enter in a competition with those of other schools across the country to win a trip to Google and a workshop with their 3D wizardfolk. There can be up to fifteen team members doing a variety of tasks.
Hunting down blueprints sound like your thing? Go Team! How about finding that perfect shot of Olin’s bricks in order to texture map onto the model? Or just some good old wireframe modeling? There’s something for everyone. (Plus, I’m looking forward to flying around campus in Google Earth tagging squirrel lairs.)
Get involved here.
I keep putting off writing about 365 stuff, because they have SO MANY EVENTS that it makes me throw up in my mouth a little. (I mean that in a positive, uplifting, supportive way. And I’m not exaggerating, anxiety actually makes me vomit, and I actually did vomit while writing the first sentence of this post.)
That said: Everyone is invited to participate in the Write On playwriting competition by coming to Brewbakers from 3:00-4:00 today (Tuesday) and getting help writing a short play. Brewbakers is providing free coffee for all Write On writers! There is also a performance by the cast at the Forrest City Gallery from 3:00-4:00. Then, join prominent performance theorist Joseph Roach and Yale’s 365 Days/365 Plays Team from 7:00-9:00 at the ’92 Theatre for a workshop, showing, and Q&A. Reception to follow at the Center for African American Studies from 9:00-11:00. That’s 8 full hours of stuff to do today, y’all.
As always, check out wesleyan365.com for additional info.
Rachel Salowitz ’07 sent us some info about Suzan-Lori Parks’ ambitious goal of writing a play a day for 365 days. Between February 5th through the 11th, Wesleyan will be hosting a week of her plays showcasing the daily life of everyone who calls Middletown home. For a schedule of the week’s events, click here.
In addition to these festivities, the Wesleyan 365 crew will also be hosting a writing competition called Write On to give everyone a taste at their own playwriting.
