Field Trip

I have recently rediscovered drawing. I have drawn very little in the last 25 years. It is a skill that I never correctly developed in the early years, so I signed up for a few classes at the Arts Center of the Capital District. The classes have been great (thanks Nell). I recently had the chance to take a day trip to the Met Museum and took along a pad and some pencils.

Light Above the Hudson

EMPAC Installation

Jennifer Tipton’s installation, Light Above the Hudson, opened tonight at the Experimental Media and Performing Arts Center (EMPAC) at the RPI campus. The rain from earlier in the day had cleared but left a little fog around for atmosphere. EMPAC is still under construction. It is very exciting to have such a great facility just down the road. Oddly, the right half of the building does not match and looks nearly identical to MIT’s media lab (of “scrubbing bubbles” fame).
