A Night of Spontaneous Art

What do you get when you invite a bunch of people to an art gallery to make art late in the evening, with the promise that whatever they come up with will be displayed publicly?

That’s exactly what organizers of Spontaneous Art Night will find out this Saturday, Sept. 30, from 8 to 10 p.m. when students arrive at the Campus Center’s Nolen Art Lounge. All those interested in creating art are invited to the gallery to relax, socialize and see what art happens.

“The art lounge is a place for students to express themselves, as well as share their thoughts and ideas with others,” says Emily Casey ’09, an intern at the gallery and coordinator of the event. “I hope that during Spontaneous Art Night students will be able to relax and let out their creative side as they become acquainted with the space.”

Attendees of Spontaneous Art Night are assured that, at the end of the night, whatever art they come up with will be affixed to the gallery’s walls for a two-week exhibition.

Spontaneous Art Night is coordinated in conjunction with an event on October 4 and 5 in which student films will be screened in the Nolen Gallery to explore connections between art and reality, says Casey.

“It is my hope that these more structured forays into the gallery will encourage students to enter it on their own and regard it as a space for relaxing and chatting with their friends,” she said.
