Art and Design October Update

Hey Everyone this is RA Joe!

October has been an exciting month here in the LLC! On October 16th I took the LLC to Gallery Night in Milwaukee's Third Ward. We went to the Tory Folliard Gallery to see the works of Susan Stamm Evans and Fred Stonehouse as well as visiting the galleries in MIAD to see their Alumni show and finally the Marshall building where many of Milwaukee's art gallery spaces can be found!

The LLC had a great time seeing and talking about the art scene of Milwaukee as well as work from professional artists during one of Milwaukee's most important cultural events.

Hello Everyone this is Peer Mentor Devin!

With midterms behind us and both classes going through multiple critiques in their classes so a trip has been long awaited. On the October, 28th 2015 the Art and Design LLC took a group trip to the Lynden Sculpture Garden. This is an outside sculpture park in the Milwaukee Area that has 50+ installations spread out over their 40 acres.                                             

As a whole group we took a bus to the Sculpture Garden and spent the class period walking around looking at the various installations. This was another time when both 2D and 3D classes got to come together and connect with each other. It was a great time to get out of the class room environment and actually inspect some real art pieces and how the interact with the environment. 

LLC students while walking around and exploring the space were asked to find one work that inspired them and to take pictures of it from multiple angles, along with taking note of the artist name, title, medium. Once found they were asked to then do a discussion post on D2L which is a place where students post their ideas and can see other student posts and comment on them. In contrast as well students were then asked to find a work that they feel does not work or they feel in unsuccessful and go through the same process.
