On April 29 LAS concentrators participated in the first Liberal Arts Division-wide Concentration Show. They joined HAVC, HPSS, and NCSS concentrators to present, display, read from, and perform a truly wonderful range of work in an inviting salon environment. From a research project that examined the way that iconography of hysteria at the end of the nineteenth century is currently being used in fashion photography, to projects that examined the sustainability of different materials, all the work served as a testament to the creativity, depth of research, and rigor of thought fostered by our Liberal Arts classes.
LAS Concentrators’ contributions to the show included Frannie Logan’s (Textiles 2016) paintings, accompanied by an artist’s statement, which graced the Tap Room walls; wonderful readings of poetry (Ahjin Lim, Painting 2017) and short stories (Zoe Mathewson, FAV 2016); Zoe Ene’s (ID, 2017) beautifully displayed poetry; and a stunning performance by Charlie Ehrenfried (Sculpture, 2018), whose work plays with religious iconography to explore the power of ritual.
