The Farm at Black Mountain College: A Hunt Library Happening

Join David Silver, Visiting Scholar at the NCSU Libraries, for a multimedia happening that chronicles the rise and fall of Black Mountain College, founded in 1933 near Asheville, North Carolina. There will be two performances on Monday, August 4. The morning performance will start at 10:30 a.m. and conclude at noon. The evening performance will start at 7 p.m. and conclude at 8:30 p.m. Both performances will start at the Hunt Library iPearl Immersion Theater.

Education practitioners can still learn from what worked and what didn’t work at Black Mountain College, especially here at NC State where several of the College’s principles are still at work. Focusing on the Black Mountain College farm and work program, Silver will lead an exploration of the College’s lesser-known but vitally important participants. David Silver is associate professor of media studies, environmental studies, and urban agriculture at University of San Francisco.

Using the entire Hunt Library as a storytelling building and featuring never-before-seen photographs, this dynamic event will examine the most experimental college in American history. Silver will employ an unconventional storytelling approach that unfolds as participants walk through the building.

Free and open to the public. Presented by the NCSU Libraries. For more information contact Mike Nutt at mrnutt@ncsu.edu.

Veterinary Student Artwork from Spring 2014 on Display

VetMed News - Tue, 2014-06-17 13:07

Visit the William Rand Kenan, Jr. Library of Veterinary Medicine to see the new artwork installed June 13, 2014. The Library entrance portholes feature reproductions of veterinary student artwork from the Spring 2014 Veterinary Illustration Selective VMC 991-29 taught by Dr. Michael K. Stoskopf, Professor of Aquatics, Wildlife, and Zoologic Medicine and of Molecular and Environmental Toxicology.

This was a one-week studio course taught at the CVM in April 2014 offering veterinary students the opportunity to hone their observation as well as their drawing and illustration skills with live observations at the Teaching Animal Unit and the NC Zoological Park. Students became familiar with basic drawing and pen and ink techniques with an emphasis on rendering from three dimensional objects, living animals, and photographs.

Seven works highlighting a variety of drawing techniques were selected by a jury of faculty and librarian judges.

Top Row (Left to Right) [click below for detailed images]

Bottom Row (Left to Right)

These works and photos of additional drawings by all ten students in the course will soon appear on the eboard in the Library. Thank you to artists Sara Bumgardner (Class of 2015) and Class of 2017: Kimberly Craney, Jennifer Fowler, Amanda Gross, Alisha Lucas, Morgan Matthews, Adeline Noger, Caitlin Smith, and Vanessa Wolf. The drawings were photographed and prepared for porthole display by Wendy Savage, Educational Media & Design, College of Veterinary Medicine.
