Hello ACU A&D,

I hope everyone is staying warm today! This is the first edition of “Weekly Announcements” in a while and we have some big news! Not to mention the ridiculous cold. As always, please take care of each other.

First Things First: New Admin Coordinator!

I would like to introduce you to Kara Taylor! She will be leading the A&D office and so much of what we do as a department. This is such an important role and we are so happy that she has joined our team. Please stop by and meet her sometime this week. Tell her about yourself and find a creative way to make her feel welcome. Because of this crazy weather we are unsure of what day exactly she will begin. So, be on the lookout!

Mandatory Meeting: February 25th, 4pm (ZOOM)

We are planning our Spring Mandatory Meeting! This will be particularly important for our individual programs. Our plan is to break into smaller Zoom groups led by your specific program directors after a few general announcements.

Senior Show: Jinkies! Graduation?!

If you missed the senior show on Friday you can still run by and see it in the library atrium, just outside the Maker Lab!

Intercollegiate Student Art Competition

Two ACU art majors had works accepted into the Intercollegiate Student Art Competition at the Center for Contemporary Arts. Lauren Lee had two photographs accepted and earned a Second and Third Place award within the photography category. Allee Casey had a painting and a sculpture accepted for the show. Her sculpture was selected for Third Place in the 3D category. The exhibition is still up for viewing at the CCA.

A&D Bible Study

Art & Design Bible Study continues this Sunday at 6 p.m. in Bible room 121. Space is limited, so look for a sign-up list in your email later this week.

Covid19 Protocols Reminder

We ask that you please continue to follow all health and safety protocols. Many of us are in close contact with at risk populations or are in a higher risk category ourselves. We have had devastating, personal impact within our community and we want to be as careful and considerate as possible. It is exciting to watch numbers go down so please continue to care for others.
