Growing through the arts Reply

By Colin Froment – Co-Editor-in-Chief

Senior arts management students Kierstan Hywell and Alex Franciosi, with help from Associate Professor of Arts Management Deborah Baldizar, displayed their senior practicum showcase, the “Growth Project” in the Wedeman Gallery in Yamawaki Auditorium until April 12.

Students in art classes, as well as Lasell Village residents and children from The Barn, were invited to submit paintings, poems, stories, drawings, photographs, and sculptures related to the project’s overall theme of personal growth. The public got their first viewing of the exhibit during a ceremony on Sunday, March 31. A “growth tree” composing of paper leaves hung on a tree branch designed by Hywell and Franciosi was introduced. Visitors wrote answers to three questions about personal growth on the leaves and were given the opportunity to place them on the tree.

Editor’s corner: My morning playlist Reply

Every morning around 7 a.m., I leave my house and start my hour and a half commute to campus MBTA. Since my commute is so long I try to occupy my mind. If I don’t have my copy of “Why Not Me” by Mindy Kaling, or any homework I have to catch up on. If I don’t have either of those with me, I listen to an array of songs I’ve saved to Spotify.

Going into a Glass Animals concert, I didn’t know what to expect. I had been planning on going to the concert only a week before it happened so I wasn’t familiar with their music at all. I listened to their debut album non-stop the week before the show so I could recognize myself with their songs and sing along during the show.
