Local Fine Arts Students Interpret the Square

One came for photography and the other for print making, but both have an active interest in the spectrum of arts and in community involvement.

Sara Brooks and Kristin Carlson are graduate student in Fine Arts at Indiana University. One came for photography and the other for print making, but both have an active interest in the spectrum of arts and in community involvement.

As Brooks said, “We were sitting around in the summer and thinking about possible joint projects. Then, one of my undergraduate students told me about the Fran Snygg Grant for Artistic Collaboration.” Carlson took up the story at this point. “We got a copy and read through it and applied.” As if in chorus, they then both said,” And then, we waited.”

The two got the grant and then set about soliciting the artists. Brooks noted that, “We got graduates, undergraduates a couple of faculty member, a member of the Art Library staff and members of the community as well. It gave us a range of town and gown and ages.” Carlson continued, “We also wanted a spectrum of the arts. We got painters, photographers, print makers and fiction writers. In addition composer Robert Lyon contributed a sound environment.”

The exhibit will be on display in the Bloomington City Hall Atrium at 401 North Morton Street through September 2009.
