Call for Transmissions

Here's a call for entries worth checking out.  It will
be on display in March/April of next year at NAAU.

Applications due January 15th.

Planning for NYC Trip

Some of you have been asking about plans for our trip to NYC and the Whitney Biennial. This year the biennial (Mar 6-Jun 1) includes a short run of performances and installations at the Park Avenue Armory (Mar 4-Mar 22). To take advantage of that, we are planning to move our trip up to the week before spring break, Mar 18 or 19 - Mar 23 or 24. This is finals week of winter term. Please begin to think about how this will fit into your plans. Also, the Dean's office is interested in some kind of "trip cam" account of your activities so ideas for this are welcome.
