Upon returning to campus for winter term, many visitors to the Weitz Center for Creativity’s Perlman Teaching Museum showed signs of confusion when they first walked into the Braucher Gallery. Instead of the standard exhibit of photographs or drawings, they encountered a group of students and two artists in matching black outfits, ardently working at a huge table occupying nearly half of the space.
It is, in fact, not an exhibit but a studio art class called “Critical Studies in Public Space with N55 in action.” For the first five weeks of the term, eighteen Carleton students will be working with Danish art and design collective N55 to come up with a proposal for a hypothetical building in the Cowling Arboretum, commonly referred to as “the Arb”.

The Student Musical Theater (SMT) is an organization dedicated to producing quality, student-run musicals for the Carleton community. This term's production of the well-known musical, Hair, will take place in the Weitz Theater, which is an exciting new step for the members of SMT, according to the musical's co-director, Ellie Durling (2017). Past SMT productions have consistently been held in the Little Nourse Theater, but Durling believes that the spacial freedom found in the larger Weitz Theater will help turn the production into a full theatrical experience for both the audience and the actors. Hair is scheduled to premiere at the Weitz Center for Creativity during 9th week of winter term.

At first glance, the class looks like any other taught at Carleton College. The room features desks, a blackboard, and a projector. The students tote backpacks and laptops, take notes, and sip their coffee while listening to a professor in glasses and a blazer lecturing at the front of the room. But there is one thing about them that makes this course unique: half of the students are from St. Olaf College.
