We are now over halfway through the semester, and things are moving right along for the Art and Design LLC! The study lounges are always busy with activity as LLC members continue to work on their studio projects. There have also been several exciting events over the past month.
On Thursday, October 16th, many residents went to the Crossing Over exhibition at the Union Art Gallery. There, they were able to see projects done by current UWM students - including Mentor Claire and myself. This was an awesome exhibition to see because residents could be a part of it next year!
On Friday, October 17th, the Art and Design LLC went to Gallery Night in Milwaukee's Historic Third Ward. We visited several galleries and studios. Residents particularly enjoyed seeing the "Vital Technology" show at MIAD, a duo exhibition of interactive works by UWM alum Bryan Cera and UWM professor Nathaniel Stern, and exploring the many spaces in the multi-story Marshall Building.

This semester is going by really fast! Coming up for the Art and Design LLC, students will be going to the Photo Documentation Lab on campus and learn how to properly document their work. Additionally, students will begin working collaboratively between the 2D Concepts and 3D Concepts classes on a Book Arts project.
It has been a fun semester so far and I can't wait to see how the rest of the year goes!
