Hello all, and welcome back to the Arts & Humanities Student Perspectives blog!
We’re excited for the start of a new year—and most importantly, the return of in-person classes and on-campus events! In fact, you may have already interacted with the Council at our recent September First Thursday festival. If you weren’t able to make it, fear not! We’ll be back on the First Thursday of next month, and there are plenty of other fun events coming up as well. We’ll be sharing updates regularly, but in the meantime, we encourage you to check out the following events that are being held on campus by a variety of arts and humanities student organizations today and this weekend!
- Tonight, Sept. 10th starting at 9:00pm, IU’s Late Night will be hosting a painting session at the Indiana Memorial Union. With free painting supplies and group tutorials, it is a great way to destress from the week and get creative!
- Saturday, Sept. 11th at 9:00pm, a comedy sketch group on campus, Boy in the Bubble Comedy, will be putting on their weekly sketch in the Fine Arts Building, Room 015. Attending this event is absolutely free! So, if you’re into comedy, go check them out!
- On the same day. Sept. 11th, from 5:00pm to 7:00pm the Sidney and Lois Eskenazi Museum of Art will have their gallery, “The Art of the Character: Highlights from the Glenn Close Costume Collection” in Gallery 100. While this event is free, they will maintain social distancing and recommend you place a reservation here to limit the walk in wait time.
In addition to covering arts and humanities events around campus, we’ll also be continuing to share various student perspectives, including those from our own team of interns at the Arts & Humanities Council. While the rest of our team will be introduced in the near future, we thought we’d start off introducing ourselves as the co-editors of the blog this year.
Hello, my name is Alanna Fisher! I am currently a senior dual majoring in Philosophy and English with intentions of continuing on to the Maurer School of Law. I just started with the Arts and Humanities Council this semester and am thoroughly looking forward to helping bring awareness to the large variety of interesting and lively events on campus. Beyond that I also really enjoy kayaking, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, and reading high fantasy novels.
Hi all! My name is Shreya, and I’m a sophomore and Chinese Flagship student majoring in International Studies at the Hamilton Lugar School. I’m excited to be helping the Arts & Humanities Council this year with the student perspectives blog and preparation for the spring Korea Remixed festival. Outside of class and work, I enjoy listening to podcasts, learning languages, and binge watching TV shows.
As we ease our way back into the school year, we’d love to hear what kind of content you want to see more of on the blog. Let us know via a comment below!
