Fractured Narratives: a strategy to engage

If you haven’t had a chance to check out the Fractured Narratives Exhibit at the Cornell Fine Arts Museum at Rollins College you still have a few more days as the exhibit will be shown through January 4th, 2015. Admission is free.

The exhibition features work by established and emerging artists who address contemporary global issues such as privacy, modern warfare, the environment, and freedom of expression. Fractured Narratives aims to provoke critical dialogue and reflection by engaging visitors with the challenging ambiguities of complex narratives. The selected works offer diverse and nuanced considerations of the changing political, cultural, psychological, and social context of the past 10 years.

Co-curated by Cornell Fine Arts Museum Curator Amy Galpin and independent curator Abigail Ross Goodman, the exhibition features film, photography, painting, sculpture, and sound by 14 artists from around the world: Dawoud Bey, Omer Fast, Eric Gottesman, Jenny Holzer, Alfredo Jaar, Amar Kanwar, William Kentridge, An-My Lê, Maya Lin, Goshka Macuga, Moris (Israel Meza Moreno), Rivane Neuenschwander, Trevor Paglen, and Martha Rosler.

Christmas Caroling at Costco

Christmas Caroling at Costco

christmas-costcoOver the weekend, one of the employees at Costco at the Winter Park location on University Boulevard sang Christmas Carols as shoppers checked-out in line. It was a big hit for all of the shoppers as clapping and whistles followed the conclusion to each of his songs.

It was a great reminder that it is the simple gestures like singing Christmas carols for a stranger that pulls the community together to celebrate the season of Christmas! Merry Christmas Winter Park and check out the video we took at Costco below!
