Looking for Art? The
Art Studio Senior Exhibition, being held in the Hillstrom Museum of Art,
is a time when campus community members might consider buying art for their
offices or departments. Numerous times throughout the year, faculty and
staff ask the art department if there is any art available for display
in their respective work areas. The art department does not have art work
available to loan out. The student work is reasonably priced and purchasing
it would show support and provide work areas with an enrichment that may
be enjoyed for years. See the Honors Day schedule in Upcoming Events for
more information about the exhibit.

Macbeth to Close

Shakespeare's Macbeth will be presented May 10-13 in Anderson Theatre.
This final mainstage performance of the Gustavus theatre season is directed
by Amy Seham and runs at 8 p.m. May 10-12 and 2 p.m. May 12-13. To develop
the supernatural themes of the play, Seham enlisted the help of Beth Peterson,
artistic associate of In The Heart of the Beast Puppet and Mask Theatre
of Minneapolis. According to Seham, large puppets of witches, birds, and
other occurrences bring out "the uniquely wicked world of 'the Scottish
Play'." These puppets, along with technical director Terena Wilken's stage
design and Andrew Vorder Brugge's choreographed sword fights, set the stage
for the evil darkness Shakespeare created with Macbeth. Tickets
are available at the Information Center in the Campus Center.
