Dear FAS members,
It was great to see all of you who came out to our first event of the year last week! Those of you who didn’t make it, we have even more exciting events coming up. Below is everything that is happening this week and in October (more art-loving people + art itself + food sometimes):
This Saturday, September 24th, please join us for a trip to DUMBO Art Festival to see an excessive amount of art in the streets, in the galleries, and projected on the bridges. We will be meeting at 2:45 p.m. @ Union Square near the 4th avenue entrance (by Walgreens) and then taking the ferry from Pier 11 to DUMBO. Be there. Art at that festival is usually amazing, skyline views on the way there breathtaking, food from the local vendors is delicious, etc.
Next Saturday, October 4th, we will be going to the Brooklyn Museum! It will be the first Saturday of the month, which means a night of great music, talks and performances. On that particular night, things like a screening of the performance Music for (prepared) Bicycles (after John Cage & Marcel Duchamp) Score Two and Mayan-style sash-dyeing will be happening.
For those of you who have been
freaking out wondering about the internship opportunities that are out there for us in the friendly and welcoming art world, we are also organizing a panel event where students who have done some unusual, not-so-obvious or really-hard-to-get internships will talk about how they got them and what they were like. Save the date for Internships in the Arts Panel on October 28th, provisional time 7:30 p.m., and stay tuned for more announcements.
And finally, on November 7th and 8th we are planning a FAS trip to Henri Matisse: The Cut-Outs show at the MoMA. Because the purchase of tickets has to happen several weeks in advance of the event, we are asking you to RSVP before October 7th.We will be doing two trips – on Friday, November 7th at 4p.m. and Saturday, November 8th at 11 a.m., so feel free to choose what works best for you.
