After hanging out in his room one night and being asked to doodle on a Marketplace Receipt, the ones that almost every student is given each day, I was instantly intrigued by what he had started to envision. It is simple and expressive, and while I know this doodle project is only a starting point, this idea has already been an inclusive and creative way to get to know new people.Read More
The Tanya Bonakdar Gallery sounds as you’d expect any gallery or museum to sound in the middle of a Tuesday afternoon in March – largely quiet, save for the rustle of papers and a few muted footsteps. Oh, and the occasional chorus of bird chirps.Read More
"When regarded on a screen, most photos are simply scrolled past or swiped through quickly, without any real consideration. But by displaying them in a tangible medium, in a setting in which we are used to appreciating creativity and dissecting craft, Tholen compels his audience to view these images for what they are: art."
After a year of hard work by senior film majors and many others working in their casts and crews, the thesis films have been completed and are finally being screened this weekend. We checked in with the directors to get a quick and dirty preview of their films in anticipation of the screenings.Read More
Last week, Be the Art was presented in the Zelnick Pavilion as part of their annual student-curated exhibition show. The show aimed to celebrate and raise awareness of artists of color at Wesleyan by creating a space for the expression and visualization of artists of color and their worksRead More
While moving some things out of a storage unit recently, I found a couple of old photos of a family I’d never met and a location I’d never been to. I felt as though I’d looked into a snapshot of someone’s memory, and immediately wanted to investigate. Levi Bettwieser encounters this everyday.Read More
An ambitious project, this thesis touches on different aspects of sexuality through its use of LGBT characters, issues of sexual assault and an introduction to the world that is college. But the larger theme tackles not only discovering your voice, but also knowing how to use it. As Billy puts it, “there’s a lot going on.”Read More
Being an artist and prospective art student in college, I realized that part of my job was to communicate this untapped part of myself in my future endeavors and projects. I didn't know what the outcome or response would be, but I didn't care if it didn't quite make sense to people right away. Then came my college experience in Suite 112 and the people I met during that time, both of which guided me to the basis of First Twelve and a dire need to communicate this idea through fashion design.Read More
A machine. 2001: A Space Odyssey. My friend’s yellow earplugs, at one point. Helicopters circling above a patch of land, their blades whisking a dust halo into night clouds. Absolute uncertainty. An experiment. These are the tidbits that come to mind when I think of Daniel Fishkin’s Transcriptions concert last Tuesday, October 28th, much more so than “instrument”, or “rhythm” or “music”.

A couple of weeks ago extenuating circumstances led the Blast Zone into uncharted territories and an entirely different kind of radio broadcast. I caught up with the G-Hole to discuss that special broadcast.
I am the stage manager for In the Heights. Most people don’t know what that means. Most people don’t know what I do. When you come and see the show, it is very likely that you will not even see me. I am the first person to arrive and the last person to leave.Read More
I sat down with Joey to discuss his artwork in the CFA courtyard. As he ripped up bits of grass, he explained to me the two spheres of his interests. In science, there are questions and there are answers. In art, there are questions that beget more questions, and so on. There are no definitive answers.Read More
