Upcoming Events

Brazenly Brown Alumni Master Classes and Public Lectures | February 19, 2015 - April 24, 2015  + -

This semester, the Creative Arts Council launches Brazenly Brown, series of Alumni Master Classes and Public Lectures in the Arts. Up to 10 intensive weekend alumni masters visits will take place throughout the Spring and Fall of 2015.  Visits will include a public talk, followed by a reception at which individuals from Brown and the larger community will have the opportunity to engage with the visitor in one-to-one conversation.  Alumni masters will also engage in a day-long master’s class in which the visitor will work directly with selected students on new and developing projects within the master’s field, giving students close contact with the ideas and approaches of the practitioner.  Finally, each visit will conclude with an intensive critique, bringing the same students back together with the master for feedback on work they've been engaged with in their own practices.
