Arguably one of the better texts I’ve received in a long time. Screw Ross Commons’ free Reiki sessions… let’s all destress by jumping in some forty-foot hamster balls and trying to destroy each other. This is productive art if I’ve ever seen it. Thanks to Professor Sanford Mirling for assigning an epic final project, and to his Sculpture 2 Class for taking Sculpture 2. I’ll tell my profs they should consider following suit next semester.

Studio Art Show Monday (tonight) 7PM

JohnJohn Show

Tonight (Monday), Sanford Mirling’s Advanced Studio Art class will present their independent work in the Johnson Pit Space, starting at 7PM. Expect performance, video, 3D and 2D pieces.

We’ve followed this class’s work over the course of the semester (they had a separate show up for the spring symposium), and we’re expecting tonight to feature some of the more radical and exciting stuff to come out of Midd’s Studio Art department in a while. If you make it to Johnson once this semester, this is probably the night you want to be there.

Also, some of the posters around have noted that the opening will feature “chicks” with power tools. seems worth noting.

There will be free pizza, doughnuts, coca cola and other drinks.

Works by:

Dylan Redford (video begins at: 7:00)
Hannah King
Maddie Dai
Maisie Ogata
Spencer Brown
Sophia Gubernick
Annie Ulrich

Weybridge Feast, TODAY 5pm

lovely, where's da food tho?

lovely, where’s da food tho?

Look like some sort of cult meeting? No fear, it’s just the annual spring feast at Weybridge House! Weybridge makes really good dinners most Monday nights (hidden gem), but this feast is taking home cooking to a whole different level. This feast has a “Mad Hatter in the Garden Theme”, which seems pretty trippy and unrelated to food, but Weybridge tells us there will be local dishes from hundreds (wowz!) of people “featuring treats like meat and cheese“… our imaginations are feasting at this extensive detail! No matter what they make, Weybridge food is always far superior to dining halls and many of our mothers, and finals suck so you might as well take a break and lavish in some free food. Plus, there will be music from Nest ‘O Rebels, and “a whole lotta love”.

François Clemmons Sings A Joyous Farewell, TONIGHT

Francois “Divaman” Clemmons and Fred Rogers, on set of Mr. Rogers Neighborhood

After a 16 year career as singer, professor, conductor, artist in residence, and spiritual leader of Middlebury College, Francois Clemmons is singing his final concert before retirement tonight at 8pm in the Mahaney Center for the Arts Concert Hall.

For those of you who have been fortunate enough to have shared a friendship with Francois Clemmons or seen one of his previous performances, you will most certainly be at the concert tonight. If you have never been to one of his performances, this is not one to miss. His incredible voice and stage-presence are the perfect way to rejuvenate yourself from the grind of pre-finals and get ready for friday night and all that is happening later tonight. No one knows what the Divaman has in store until the show itself, and this one is looking to be entirely unique and unforgettably special. Oh, and he also won a grammy for opera and an emmy for Mr. Roger’s Neighborhood. This dude can sing.

What: Divaman’s final concert before retirement
Date: Tonight, Friday May 10th
Time: 8pm
Where: CFA Concert Hall
