The Studio Art Department’s senior exhibit opening is happening right now in Johnson, and will continue until 7:30. Check out thesis work by:
Hannah King ’13
Annie Ulrich ’13
Evio Isaac ’13
As always with these sorts of things, there’s sure to be some free food.
If you don’t make it to the opening, the show will be up for the next few days.
Tonight (Monday), Sanford Mirling’s Advanced Studio Art class will present their independent work in the Johnson Pit Space, starting at 7PM. Expect performance, video, 3D and 2D pieces.
We’ve followed this class’s work over the course of the semester (they had a separate show up for the spring symposium), and we’re expecting tonight to feature some of the more radical and exciting stuff to come out of Midd’s Studio Art department in a while. If you make it to Johnson once this semester, this is probably the night you want to be there.
Also, some of the posters around have noted that the opening will feature “chicks” with power tools. seems worth noting.
There will be free pizza, doughnuts, coca cola and other drinks.
Dylan Redford (video begins at: 7:00)

WRMC just launched a new video series that will explore music at Middlebury. The first installment is a short film of Alpenglow live in the WRMC studio.
It gets real funky in a good way (you’ll see what we mean). Check it out below.
On Thursday afternoon, three editors of the literary magazine n+1 are hosting a reading and discussion. If you’ve never heard of n+1, notes from people who like it:
“The best goddamn literary magazine in America.”
“Just when you’re thinking you’re intellectually alone in the world, something like n+1falls into your hands.”
“n+1 is rigorous, curious and provocative. Intelligent thought is not dead in New York. It has simply moved to Brooklyn.”
From those don’t like it:
“is your journal really necessary?
– The New Criterion
The editors are set to talk about the trials and tribulations making a living as a writer, the role the literary magazine in today’s day and age, and current intellectual dialogue in the U.S., among other things.
WHEN: Thursday (March 21) at 4:30
WHERE: The Orchard Room (Hillcrest 103)
A new student band with a handful of former Stoopkid members is playing their first show tonight at 9 at Crossroads. The band is currently working under the name of Convergence Sound Project, playing hip-hop music with a full instrumental line-up (sax, trombone, synth, guitar, bass, drums).
Not really sure at all what these guys will sound like, but you can count on it being interesting— this is a group of serious musicians. If you see the show, let us know what you thought in the comments.
