LRC Tip of the Week: Talk to Your Professor!

Article *
The great thing about going to a school as small as MIAD is the potential to build relationships with professors right off the bat. Forging a relationship with your teachers is important and necessary to be successful and to learn new things. The link below might be helpful in explaining why and how one should approach communication with a professor whether it be to get simple questions answered, or to develop a resource for future learning outside of class.

Barry Schwabsky Reading

Date Of Event * Tuesday, April  5, 2016
Time *
6:00 p.m.
Location *
Todd Wehr Auditorium (RL80)
Cost *
FREE
The Details *
MIAD is excited to host leading art critic Barry Schwabsky, on the occasion of his new book, “The Perpetual Guest: Art in the Unfinished Present.” A reading will take place Tuesday, April 5, 6-7:30 p.m. in the Tood Wehr Auditorium (RL80). Daniel Goldin from Boswell Books will be on hand with copies of the new book and other volumes of Schwabsky’s art writing and poetry.

Schwabsky is art critic for the Nation, co-editor of international reviews for Artforum, and a frequent contributor to the London Review of Books and New Left Review. His upcoming book The Perpetual Guest: Art in the Unfinished Present explores the connections between art’s past and present. In surveying the art world of this past decade, Schwabsky attends not only to its most significant newer faces—among them, Kara Walker, Thomas Hirschhorn, Ai Weiwei, Chris Ofili, and Lorna Simpson—but their forebears, both recent (Jeff Wall, Nancy Spero, Dan Graham, Cindy Sherman) and more distant (Velázquez, Manet, Matisse, and the portraitists of the Renaissance).

LRC Tip of the Week: PLANNING WITH LISTS

Article *
As the momentum of the semester settles into a higher activity level, it is easy to understand why students might get a little overwhelmed. This week’s tip is to use the LIST as a tool to thwart the tendency to try to think about too many things at the same time. Lists are a great tool to break down projects and assignments into manageable parts. By breaking down and listing out each part, you are better able to identify when you have time to do each part before the project/assignment is due. Additionally, because you have everything on a list and a plan when to accomplish each part, you will better be able to focus on ONE THING at a time and control the urge to become overwhelmed!
