  • Junior art show brings venturesome variety (Login Required)

    “Part of the exercise of the junior show is that students begin to self–edit their work. I had one-on-one consultations with a number of students, and I facilitated putting others into a dyad so they had another person that they could talk through their creative process.”

  • Elysia Crampton explores Aymaran abolitionism (Login Required)

    “If I appear invalid, if appear incapable, just know that my mission is already completed by me being here. It is an honor to be here and hold this space, but my body is the document, as someone of Aymara descent, as someone queer, as someone trans, my flesh attests to this legacy, to the perseverance to this legacy.”

  • Players to explore Australia's carceral history in Our Country's Good (Login Required)

    “The play deals with important and timeless concerns, particularly the tension between constraint and freedom. Constraint can be extreme and literal—it’s a play about a penal colony, of course—but constraint can be ideological, social, moral, personal. In the end, it’s about the power of art to transcend constraint, to help us find freedom even within intractable constraint. When I chose the play a year ago, it was far ahead of the [2016 Presidential] election. But its championing of the humane in the face of the abuse of power makes it a particularly timely inspiration and consolation now.”

  • Smoqehouse adds new flavor to Northfield dining scene (Login Required)

Everything seems to be in place, and moreover, the food is delicious. No downsides.
