A&D Weekly Announcements – 2/22/2020

Hello ACU A&D,

Well, I hope everyone is making it after the trauma of last week. I am not sure how much more we can all take. We are artists! We will survive! But seriously, if you need something or know of someone who needs some extra support please let us know.

New Admin Coordinator!

As I mentioned last week, Kara Taylor has started! Her hours will be limited on Monday and Tuesday but please make an effort to stop by and introduce yourself. You all are so good at making people feel welcome. It’s always nerve racking to start a new job.

Mandatory Meeting: THIS Thursday at 4pm (ZOOM)

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. Please be sure to attend.

This one will also be in the library atrium, just outside the Maker Lab! But because of last week’s chaos we will be sending more information out on this later in the week.

If you have an interest in studying abroad for a full semester please make plans to come to the Gallery next Tuesday, March 2nd at 11:15am!

A&D Weekly Announcements – 2/15/2020

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.

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

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.

A&D Students,

Mark your calendar for this Friday evening! Our first senior show opening in quite some time is scheduled for 5:30 in the library atrium (right ouside the Maker Lab). See you there!

It’s the last full week of classes and we made it to the target date! You guys have been AMAZING!

 
THIS THURSDAY @ 11:20: FRESHMEN IMPORTANT GATHERING
Freshman/First year A&D students – please meet in the courtyard between the office and the gallery on Thursday at 11:20 for a 10 minute super important gathering.
Next Monday & Tuesday:

Students, please check your syllabi carefully and make sure you know what is due on Monday and Tuesday, please don’t assume because it is the start of the Thanksgiving week that your classes won’t meet or you won’t have important deadlines, critiques etc.

Holiday Building Access:
All A&D students enrolled in an art class have access to the building until Dec. 12th. If you are going to be in Abilene after 12/12 and need building access to work on things please email me with your name and banner number.
If I think of anything you need to know before we leave I will message later on in the week. Otherwise, finish strong all the way till finals, enjoy the break, take care of yourselves (rest, hydrate, enjoy time with loved ones, breathe, meditate, and be proud that you made it through a nutty year and very odd semester).

INSTAGRAM COMPETITION POSTPONED

Due to the presidential election Instagram has temporarily changed the way users can search hashtags. Unfortunately this removed our ability to view A&D competition  entries. As soon as Instagram returns to its standard search functionality we will resume the competition. In the mean time we encourage you to continue posting work to #acuartanddesign. We are confident it will be viewable when the standard functionality returns.
