On Wednesday, March 27, the Department of Art will host Yasmin Golan, a queer feminist artist and professional chef, for a talk about her food-based projects in the San Francisco Bay Area. Following the talk, we'll have a casual chat with faculty and students. Both the talk and the chat afterward will take place in Ennis 017 from 3:30 to 4:30 pm. Feel free to circulate this announcement widely, and mention it to your students if you can.
Yasmin Golan is a visual and culinary artist who tells stories in five senses. A veteran of artisanal kitchens with a degree in social history and awards in poetry, Yasmin's multi-disciplinary performances and food-art installations explore aesthetics and narrative through collective engagement with food - and by extension, questions about history, culture, authenticity, identity, memory, and belonging. Previous projects include San Francisco's beloved pop-up restaurant Queer Food For Love (2007-2011), and Humblebee Grocery in Oakland, California (2012-2014). Yasmin has been featured in the New York Times Magazine and is currently completing an MA in Folklore at the UC Berkeley.
Here's a link to a public radio story on Yasmin's work: https://www.kqed.org/bayareabites/44839/lgbt-pride-profile-culinary-artist-yasmin-golan
The talk is hosted by the Department of Art, at the invitation of Katie Anania's Art History course, Vision & Hunger: Art, Food, Performance.
We're looking forward to seeing some of you there!

Integrated Arts Brown Bag Workshop:
Dr. Carolyn Barber, 2019 Martha Daniel Newell Scholar at GCSU, will lead a workshop, in collaboration with Allied Arts, designed to explore and exercise the creative process. These four sessions will take place on Tuesdays, 12:30 p.m., March 26- April 16, at Allen's Market, 101 E. McIntosh St.
Session 1: March 26- 12:30 p.m.
We’ll explore classic portrait paintings, drawings and photographs, as well as characterizations through music, literature, poetry, dance, sculpture, drama, comedic impressions, and even food. We’ll begin to identify and investigate potential subjects (self portraits are always an option) and consider media.
Session 2: April 2 - 12:30 p.m.
Having each chosen a subject and started to catalogue their distinguishing features and traits, we’ll experiment with techniques to tailor a medium to the character. Workshoppers will choose their medium based on their interest and what’s available at home. Discussion of strategies an options will be a big part of this session.
Session 3: April 9 - 12:30 p.m.
Having started their portraits at home, workshoppers will have an opportunity to share ideas and experiment in a collaborative setting. Have you hit a wall? Developed writer’s block? Can’t think of the perfect spice to complete the dish? We’ll work it out as a team.
Session 4: April 16 - 12:30 p.m.
A time for exposition and celebration! Creators will have the opportunity to display, or enact, or share their work with fellow creators, friends and family – perhaps even the subjects of some of the portraits. Fresh ideas are likely to emerge even as potential new collaborations spark, providing creative momentum for all.

The first "MURACE Research Roundup" was held on March 6, 2019, in the Health Sciences Building Room 314 beginning at 5:30 p.m. The event was student-lead and student-driven by members of the MURACE Student Research Circle. Nick Palmer, President of the Circle, worked tirelessly with his team to make this event happen. The event was structured based on the "speed dating" concept with the intention that students would get to meet a variety of faculty mentors and be exposed to various research topics to gain direction for their future research endeavors; and, that faculty mentors would have the opportunity to share their research opportunities. One faculty mentors attending the event said "I did not get to stop talking for the entire time. It was great." One student who attended wrote to the Circle President expressing his satisfaction with the event and recommending that the event is repeated next year. Discussions are underway to consider repeating the event in Fall 2019. If you would like to participate (student, staff, or faculty mentor) and/or help with preparations for the next event, please join the MURACE Student Circle meeting on April 15, 2019, in Atkinson 202 at 5:30 p.m. or contact Nick Palmer at firstname.lastname@example.org.
