Minutes: Meeting 2

Sunday, September 13th, 2009

So today was our second meeting of the semester and our first in Erdman. Remember general members are welcome at our Sunday meetings at 5:30pm.

1. Mural Club

-Mural Club is a bit in transition at the moment so Art Club has agreed to work closely with it for now

-We welcome Lee Wacker as Mural Club Head

-We’ve been approached to do a mural for Lusty Cup so we discussed budget and procedure. Stay tuned for more information about that project!

2. SGA– We chose the lucky souls who are to go to the meeting tonight.

3. Drumming Club

-Unfortunately, the art studio is not really the place to have rehearsals or music practice.

Our storage options are not suited for instrument storage.

4. Classes

-Since we finish interviewing this week, next week’s meeting will be the choosing of classes/artists to hire.

-We discussed materials fees, how many classes, etc…

5. Student Run Workshops

Yes, they will be continuing to be run by anyone who has any sort of skill. Most of our procedures from last year will continue. (see our page at the upper right of this blog.)

-Best if they coincide with Community Art Night.

6. Arts Coalition– We are part of it…which is good.

7. Constitution– We are resubmitting a revised Constitution to SGA to make sure it’s up to date.

8. Norristown

-Yay for the volunteers who went to Family Paint Jam!

-Our co-president Ariel will be teaching a Spray Paint Stenciling Workshop on Wednesday October 2nd, 2009 in Norristown!

-There will be a fundraising event for Norristown Arts. Another chance to get your hands on art prints!

Wednesday September 16th, 2009 there will be an advocacy group meeting run by Adrienne

9. Events

-We revised policies to definitely include that no regular meetings can be held in the studio.

-Apparently, there’s already demand for the space…

Call for Submissions! Art Club-Greens Exhibition

Thursday, September 18th, 2008

Call for submissions:

Think about your environment, social, ecological, or manmade.  How does your environment impact your life?  In what way are you connected to your local ecosystems, whether, here, at home, or someplace else that matters to you?  How does place affect you?  In a piece of visual art please explore how you connect to your environment and how it affects you.  Please pay special attention to your interactions with/dependence on your local ecosystem.

For example: perhaps a piece looking at how the extreme rains this past summer impacted your life and food supply if you lived in New England?  Or a piece connecting your community to the aquifer on which it depends?

Please feel free to include a brief artist statement because of the conceptual nature of the project.

All submissions should have your name and email address attached to a separate piece of paper so we can review artwork anonymously.  Work can be submitted to Art Club President Anna Lehr Mueser (Rock 250), Vice President Angela Wang (Merion 2nd), or in the studio itself in the basement of English House.  All work must be submitted by October 20th.


The artwork submitted will be reviewed by members of the Greens and the Art Club and displayed on campus.  The goal is to produce a thought-provoking gallery show exploring how people think about their environments and understand their role in them.
