Join us in 141 at 11am on Thursday for the first of our Departmental Chapels.  Remember that you can earn two art event credits each semester by attending two art chapels each semester.  Our theme is Bread & Wine – conversations on community.  Arlene will kick off the series.

Construction – THIS Friday in Shore Gallery

We will be hosting an art show by Roberta Masciarelli an artist from Dallas in the Shore Gallery.  Her show reception will be Friday at 6pm.  You can earn an art event credit by attending the opening.

Roberta Masciarelli is a Brazilian born visual artist based in Dallas, Texas, USA.
Being in the visual arena all her life, she kept changing her artistic expression throughout time. While her career started as an illustrator in Sao Paulo, Brazil after she graduated with a degree in Architecture, she then moved into the areas of graphic design and web design. And she loved her profession. Her art is based on what she believes: recycling, repurposing, thinking about the planet and most importantly, the environmental pollution which we are all faced with. Her background from her formal training in Architecture also had a significant influence – thinking and planning ahead before building.
