Yesterday we had a full house at the USFCAM for our annual Week of Wonder event. This year we offered up an “Art and Ice” theme… complete with deliciously refreshing ‘snowballs‘ outside and some deliciously provocative contemporary art inside.
Over 200 Students Served
Snowballs are people! Just kidding. That should probably read “Over 200 Snowballs Served”…anyway, we were lucky we didn’t run out of snowballs yesterday. We served well over 200 HOT (yeah hot!) USF students an icy treat.
The gallery was also bustling with students who took in our current USFCAM “Stagecraft” exhibition. Many of the smarties in attendance also took part in our art smarts challenge, competing for prizes donated by our good friends at AOE Artworld.
They say you can’t turn back time… Cher can’t even do it… she wishes she could so that she could ‘find a way,’ but she can’t. But you, on the other hand, still have a chance. If you missed out on the excitement and refreshments yesterday, you can still catch up with the “Stagecraft” exhibition before it closes on September 10th!
Tomorrow we are having a reception for the “Stagecraft” show AND we have invited some special guests to the campus so that they might share their wisdom and insights on the work in our current USFCAM show. Details below:
