11/23/11 Deadline; 12/01/11 Event: Student Culture

The Castellani Art Museum and the English Department’s very own Aquila Literary Journal will host a Student Culture Expo on Thursday, December 1. Santa comes early this year!

In order to get your artwork. photography or written work considered for inclusion, please contact Ms. Laura Brownlie at no later than Wednesday, November 23.

A special suggestion from someone who knows how this sort of thing works: Please do NOT, repeat NOT wait until the last minute. Ms. Brownlie is doing a great service for students in being the collection point for your materials, but she needs some down-time just like we all do over the holiday break. I’m sure she’d appreciate submissions earlier than the first day of the Thanksgiving break... Even if you will have something ready for her by the deadline, you might want to drop a quick note ahead of what you’d like to share, so she doesn’t get whomped by a tidal wave at 11:59 p.m. on November 23... followed by a string of “desperate” pleas for consideration by latecomers.

The event itself will be held Thursday, December 1 from 7 to 9 p.m. in the Castellani Art Museum’s main gallery, with food provided by catering services on campus. This is a great honor for the Aquila. The Castellani is one of our top-tier venues for events since it’s got the “wow!” factor; and they are including free food! Folks, the Aquila has arrived!

The event will be completely free for all students to attend. The purpose of the event is to promote the Castellani as a resource and an interesting place to hang out, bring friends, and keep an eye on. They have an amazing, dedicated, warm staff of folks, and they’re one of Western New York’s “best kept secrets” with a world-class collection and set of exhibitions. I cannot recommend them enough to you!
