Springtime for Cornish

Just FYI – it’s a big old list, so most of it is after the jump – but you’re nutballs if you don’t go see Joe Park’s show The Hotness.  Nutballs!

this calls for collaboration…

In a city with a wealth of talented individuals and collegiate arts institutions, why haven’t we seen more collaboration between universities?  Last Friday, the Henry’s Associate Director for Communications, Betsey Brock, and students from S.H.A.G  (Student/Henry Advisory Group) headed downtown to visit students art Cornish College of the Arts for a meeting of the minds. After some brief introductions we all started chatting about what we would like to see happen in the coming years – studio visits – collaborative shows – guest lectures  – public programs –  we put everything on the table, including business cards and contact information.

Shortly after, Henry folks were given a walk through tour of the facilities at Cornish. We were impressed with the individual studio space and group cohesion.  Even though each student had their own workspace they all seemed more than comfortable to engage each other outside that space and talk about their classmates work in an informed and genuine vernacular. Throughout the tour we continued to toss around ideas and agreed to meet up again after the New Year to get some projects in the works. One possible opportunity that was discussed was the possibility of a group show at Parnassus Cafe on the UW campus. On behalf of those visiting from the Henry, I can say that I’m greatly looking forward this collaboration – the whole situation smacks of possibility.cornish01
