Quidditch, anyone?

The details… For those of you who don’t know, Quidditch is a magical sport from the world of Harry Potter that has recently come to muggle campuses across the nation. Depending on how many people are interested, we could join in on the fun and have a game (or even tournament) of our own!

So, watch the video linked below and if you are interested in playing, here’s what to do:
-email me saying you’re interested (even if you’ve already talked to me about it)
-also note whether you would prefer to play the weekend of April 29 or May 6 (the last day of school).

And don’t forget to TELL YOUR FRIENDS! We need at least 14 people to have one game. Depending on how much interest is generated, I will send out more information with details such as how to play.

LOGICAL CONSTRUCTION

Date? Friday March 25th
Time? 6:00-9:00 PM
Where? Gallery M at the Intercontinental
How Much? Complimentary hors-d’oeuvres and champagne
The details… Stevie Kinast is concerned with interpretations and descriptions. In an attempt to define the moment of interpretation, she has become compelled by subtle variances between similar things evident in structures intent on description yet laden with illogical generalizations.

Tim Stoelting’s work has always been rooted in the exploration of optics and questioning the space around us. The deconstruction, reconstruction and questioning of the idea of what we perceive as space is evident in his Cubits, which serve as proportions through which viewers can examine and generalize spatiality.
