Clear Your Calendar: Upcoming Events You Won’t Want to Miss
It’s hard to believe that January is almost over, but time flies when you’re having fun (or panicking about meeting project deadlines). Instead of worrying about what you may have missed, get your day planner ready—February is stacked with opportunities for RMCAD students, alumni, and the community alike. Here’s a short run-down of just a few upcoming events:
Wayfinding Lecture Series: Evan Mann
Thursday, February 1, 2018
Do you ever wonder how professional artists got to where they are? Here’s your chance to ask one yourself. Evan Mann, filmmaker and owner of Denver-based Otherworldly Productions, will share his personal journey as a creative professional and provide insight to students who are interested in working in similar fields. This event is the latest installment of the Wayfinding Lecture Series. Come hungry—lunch will be provided.
Faculty Lecture Series
Thursday, February 8, 1:30 – 2:30 p.m.
Mary Harris Auditorium
Outside the walls of RMCAD, our faculty members do some really cool stuff. That’s why we host a monthly Faculty Lecture Series. Join us this time around to hear short talks from Frank Varney (Photography) and Sarah Gentry (Game Art) about their work, process, and research. This event is open to RMCAD students, staff, faculty and alumni.
Michael Jones McKean
Tuesday, February 13, 2018
Doors open at 6 p.m.
Lecture begins at 6:30 p.m.
Mary Harris Auditorium
Through his work, Michael Jones McKean explores the nature of objects in relation to folklore, technology, anthropology, and mysticism. Join RMCAD’s VASD Program for a lecture by the New York-based artist, in which he’ll focus on the possibility of disparate objects skidding across time, exploring “scale” and how time’s collapse can help re-articulate our ancient involvement with forms, materials, meaning, representation, and poetics.
The event is free and open to the public. Registration is highly recommended prior to the lecture. Sign up here.
The Artist Market – Part 1: John Vogl
Thursday, February 15, 1:30 – 2:30p.m.
Join Student Life for part one of a two-part workshop titled “The Artist Market.” The first installment will be run by local artist John Vogl, and will focus on the ins and outs of owning and operating an art business, from the preparing work for print, to taking it to market. Ceramicist Erin Pattullo will host the second workshop in March. Students can RSVP for the workshop here.
