A+D Clubs Build Community Through Campus Events

The mission of our club is to educate others, so that they have the knowledge to know how important it is to live a balanced and healthy lifestyle. Yet, you will learn to be creative and grow different produce while taking care of our planet. You’ll then be able to learn how to cook a balanced meal by using the produce you’ve grown.

We are a club that is based on helping others, while being a community-open to everyone and their open minds. We love to hear from others, you are important to us and it is important that we are able to spread our word. Gardening and having the knowledge of where our food comes from is important. In addition, it’s important for us to fuel our bodies with the right nutritional foods.

We Create Together

Disenfranchised Grief – Exhibit

150 150 Art Design PLAY

During his last year as Dean of the Divinity School, Dr. Gillepsie approached Art+Design chair, Terrill Thomas about showcasing student work in their hallway. Some months later, Dr. Gillepsie retired to attend to some serious health issues. Thomas approached the new Dean, Dr. Ninow with the concept. He agreed to go back to the faculty and ask them for a concept that the photography students could respond to. They came back with “Disenfranchised Grief”, a photographic challenge, to capture and honor the types of grief in society that go unrecognized. Every student, no matter what their major, responded with honest and powerful imagery. Many were moved to tears during the reception. This exhibit will be the first of an annual photographic exhibit in the Divinity school. This type of cross discipline collaboration is something that would not have happened in an all arts school. 

Joseph Ramos from the student run paper/website CriterionNow, was on hand to document the event. You can view the full gallery here: Disenfranchised Photography Exhibit on CriterionNow >>
