This Week

Film Screening and Director Q&A | Melvin Edwards
Tues. Dec 5, 5:30pm

List Art Building, 64 College Street
All are welcome at a screening of Some Bright Morning: The Art of Melvin Edwards (2015), followed by a discussion with director Lydie Diakhaté. This film tells the story of African-American sculptor Melvin Edwards. Born in 1937 in segregated Houston, TX, Edwards made his way to California to begin his art career and eventually settled in New York. Some Bright Morning follows the artist from his New York gallery to Ghana and Senegal, and places Edwards’ life and work in an international context. Through extensive interviews, the artist discusses the cultural and political values influencing his own artistic language over the past five decades. Presented by David Winton Bell Gallery.  Free and open to the public.

Urban Studies Bus Tour | Murals in Providence
Fri. Dec 8, 3-4:30pm
108 George Street, Providence
Over the last few years, a large number of painted murals have turned the city of Providence into an open air museum for large scale public art, thanks to organizations such as the Avenue Concept and City Arts, who have commissioned curators and artists from Providence, across the country and abroad. This tour will take you to the most important of these murals in South Providence, Olneyville and the City Center and tell you about their creators, artists such as Angel Garcia, Nicky Vespia, Nychos, Agustin Patino and Shepard Fairey.

MFA Program
Intermedia + Digital Arts MFA (IMDA) program at UMBC
Deadlline: Feb. 1, 2018

We’ve just moved to our new studio facility at the historic Lion Brothers Building in the Hollins Market neighborhood of West Baltimore. The studios are designed and retrofitted specifically for artists, where our graduate students can build and display ongoing projects. This space also serves as a platform where students take classes and discuss their work during faculty reviews, critique, and one-on-one studio visits with guest artists and critics through our acclaimed Visiting Artists Lecture Series.  The studios are within the footprint of UMBC’s sister campus, the University of Maryland Baltimore [UMB], and within walking distance of the Inner Harbor, downtown Baltimore, and a few blocks from
the Bromo Arts +Entertainment District.

The LIST list is a weekly publication about Visual Art Department news, events and opportunities In List Art, around Brown's campus and in our community at large. Let us know of news and opportunities you would like to see included.
