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!

DRAWN TO PRINT National Juried Exhibition @ (SCENE) Metrospace
Jul 27 – Aug 31 all-day
DRAWN TO PRINT National Juried Exhibition @ (SCENE) Metrospace | East Lansing | Michigan | United States

DRAWN TO PRINT

A national juried exhibition of drawning and printmaking and everything inbetween.

July 27 – August 31, 2018

Reception July 27, 6-8PM

This exhibition is the result of a national call and features works on paper that explore the ways in which the diverse and inclusive mediums of drawing and printmaking converge and are completely separate.

The path followed by a brayer can begin with a pencil, a mouse, a cut, or a maybe a stencil. There is no limit to the ideas that can be explored through drawing or printmaking. The presence of the artist in these processes can be at the forefront or separated by many layers of information. Surfaces can be additive or subtractive. Lines and forms can be ink, paint, graphite, thread, a cut or a tear. The work in this exhibition meets with the act of one material being pulled across the surface of another.

This exhibition features work from:
