Hello September!

We might be trading in our summer freedom for textbooks and homework, but with a new semester comes new and exciting events on campus.

Like the rest of us, Distressed Children International, DCI, is trying to make the best of the lingering summer heat during the first few weeks of school. In doing so, they have decided to take part in the summer’s hottest trend of the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.

DCI members were nominated throughout the summer, but decided collectively to take the challenge. They will be doing it publically during campus lifetime on Wednesday, Sept. 17 in front of the water fountain outside of the Charles B. Wang Center.

On top of completing the challenge, DCI will be donating as a group to ALS. In addition, they will be having an ice pop sale, where those proceeds will be donated to children around the world.

If you’re over the whole ice bucket challenge, you can check out Kate Gilmore’s exhibition, Top Drawer, in the Paul W. Zuccaire Gallery

Starting Sept. 6 through Oct. 18, Gilmore’s exhibition will be in the Staller Center open to the public and free of charge.  The gallery is open Tuesday through Friday form noon to 4:00pm and Saturdays from 7:00pm- 9:00pm. 

The exhibition will include a video, performance, sculpture and instillation work that relate to the theme of identity, power structures, and hierarchies.

An art exhibition makes for visual appealing photos, which could be put into a photo gallery and a nice feature piece for any publication.
