Looked at the date, and realized, oh shoot(!!!), it’s been awhile since I last updated, so! Have an update!
First, some annoucements…
1) On Wednesday, October 28th, Melissa Hulme, Betsy Boyle, and I will be helping to table for the event up at Paretsky Conference Center. Come say hi, have some lunch, and be sure to take a bookmark!
2) EVENT ANNOUCEMENT:
You’ve probably seen the flyers for “Artist in Libraries”, but even so…
Artists in Libraries” Panel Discussion
Hosted by the GSLIS Panopticon/ARLIS Student Chapter
Tuesday, November 3, 2009
Kotzen Center, located on the main floor of Lefavour Hall, Simmons College
Studio art students, a traditionally unrecognized group in most
academic libraries, are the focus of this panel discussion. We will
host Art Grad students from both Mass Art and the School of the
Museum of Fine Arts to gather imput on artists’ needs in the library.
From grant and residency information, assignments, artist website
development and possibly even inspiration, what role does the library
play, if any? What does “information literacy” mean to a studio art
major? Simmons is in a unique location just blocks away from
Boston’s two premier art schools; let’s tap into this population to
be at the forefront of service to artists and art students!
Light snacks will be provided!
Again, stop by! Learn about this unique take on the library career path, and possibly make a contact or two…
3) We are still taking entries for the Tech Lab art show. Please do let one of us know if you have anything to show.
That all being said, some links.
1) ArtSTOR is currently working with Tufts University to digitize a collection of stained glass. While most of the Collection is French, some Austrian and German pieces are also included.
More information (and pictures!) available on the ArtSTOR site.
2) Also, kind of a cool google search.
…woodcuts! of Mount Fuji.
All woodcuts created by Katsushkia Hokusai.
Which one is your particular favorite?
And hope to see everyone at the Artists in Libraries panel!!
