Creative Collaboration Arts Festival @ Wharton Center for Performing Arts Courtyard
Sep 17 @ 12:00 pm – 3:00 pm

This event is designed to bring creative minds together and introduce the resources that the arts community at MSU has to offer. This year, Creative Collaboration will take the form of an arts festival! We are introducing student artist galleries, art activities, interactive booths, live performances and the chance to meet other students like you. With over 20 student creative organizations present, this event gives MSU students the chance to get involved and make a difference.

Every student at Michigan State University is aware of how big this school is. With over 600 student groups, it can be more than a little confusing and overwhelming to try and get involved or explore your interests when there’s so much information thrown at you on a daily basis, especially during Welcome Week. That’s why we created the MSU Arts Council and CREATIVE COLLABORATION. Now in its fourth year, CREATIVE COLLABORATION was formed under the idea of creating an arts-specific resource fair for new and returning students interested in pursuing creative endeavors and getting involved with the arts here at MSU, as well as creating a strong and collaborative arts community where groups can work together to create amazing events and establish long-term partnerships. Different groups from dance, visual arts, music, theatre, culture, and other art forms set up informational booths that showcase their work, activities, and events, meant to increase awareness and recruit new members. During the event, there are also numerous giveaways and awesome performances from the groups and fellow students. Whether you are looking for a networking opportunity, to improve your artistic skill set, or just for a creative outlet, CREATIVE COLLABORATION brings in groups that offer unique ways to engage with the arts and with MSU. Come out and join us, enjoy some live entertainment, meet new friends, and be a part of this amazing arts community. We hope to see you there!

Visiting Artist Feather Metsch Workshop @ Abrams Planetarium
Nov 27 @ 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm
Visiting Artist Feather Metsch Workshop @ Abrams Planetarium  | East Lansing | Michigan | United States

Monday, November 27th 4pm-6pm, Workshop on creating Fulldome Art, Abrams Planetarium

Feather Metsch will present techniques on creating immersive fulldome art for presentation in digital planetariums and similar venues

Feather Metsch (Little Traverse Bay Band of Odawa Indians) is a digital artist and researcher whose mediums vary across several fields of art, science and technology, but most often focus on site specific immersive and interactive performance and installation. Feather studied fashion at Parsons University before becoming more interested in the materials themselves, later transferring to The School of the Art Institute of Chicago to study in the Fiber and Material Studies program. She most recently graduated from the Institute for American Indian Arts in 2017, with a BFA in Digital Art. Feather will be attending a technology and art-based interdisciplinary Master’s program in the fall of 2018. Feather’s recent projects have examined the duality of being half Native American and adopted by a non-indigenous family. She explores issues through the complicated lens of blood quantum in her ongoing series Blood/Quantum/Physics, as well as another ongoing series, including Watercycles, where she explores the pervasive yet invisible role that water plays in our lives, something that resonates deeply for the artist, and how she was taught to speak to her ancestors. 

Her visit is made possible by the Abrams Planetarium, WKAR, American Indian and Indigenous Studies, Lyman Briggs College, and the Department of Art, Art History and Design.
