Last Friday, the Carleton Art Gallery opened its new exhibit, "Public Aesthetics and Mass Politics." It features a collection of 20th century Latin American posters including everything from protest posters and propaganda to movie advertisements. The curator of the collection, Teresa Eckmann of the University of Texas at San Antonio, gave a talk Friday night on the posters. Though they come from many different eras and nations, she drew attention to the posters' common features, which include economy of style, integration of text, political message and use of understatement.
You can learn more about the exhibition at the Carleton Art Gallery website.

On Saturday night, the Nightingales took the stage dressed in everything from bubble wrap to plastic bags to a black spandex catsuit with a fur collar. They sang their first song, TLC's "Unpretty", without any explanation of their bizarre garb, then eventually got around to explaining that in honor of their guests for the night, the Macalester Traditions, an all-male a capella group from Macalester College, they were dressed as Carleton traditions. These included Friday Flowers, Toff (the black catsuit), Heaven and Hell, the albino squirrel, and one girl who appeared to be dressed normally until she came up front and the rest of the Gales sang the opening notes of Like a Prayer.

What is it that Carleton students get up to when they engage in the community?
They might help a nonprofit organization package food that is going to be shipped to children in developing countries, for one thing, like at last weekend's Feed My Starving Children event.

Last weekend, Evans held its traditional Heaven and Hell dance, where students can choose to party in Heaven or Hell. But wait: there’s that other place you can go, too. That would be Purgatory, according to Dante. Cujokra provided that third option for Carls who were not too naughty, but not too nice, either, with an improv show on Friday night. Unlike, well, Purgatory, students didn’t mind hanging around there for a while.

The Carleton Comics Journal is the latest to join the ranks of Carleton’s student-run publications, alongside the Carletonian, the CLAP, and Manuscript. New this term, the CCJ is the brainchild of Scott Donaldson ’10 and Jacob Canfield ’12.

We already know that Carleton is home to some pretty unusual student clubs. We’ve got Naginata Club, Moustache Club, Reformed Druids of North America, and so forth. It’s long said on the Student Orgs web page that we also have a Western Archery Club, but the group has been keeping a fairly low profile on campus.
Not any longer. Bill Brinkman ’12 and Michael Hanna ’12, this year’s co-presidents, have decided to pack Archery Club out of storage – literally.

Ever wonder why you hear whump! whump! when you walk past that oak tree outside of Olin? Wonder no longer.
