2 buzz AUGUST 22-29, 2013
I’ve said it before in this column, and it has been said throughout history as far back as Greek philosopher Heraclitus: “The only constant is change.” It’s one of those phrases that applies to everyone, everywhere, and will always ring true by its very nature. If you’re not changing, striving or moving forward, you’ll be left behind. We as humans spend a great deal of our time and energy fighting against change, or at least struggling with it. Learning to embrace change is a life skill that can help us stay positive during difficult times. With schools back in session, CU has undergone a drastic change in population, as has the Illini Media Building. The Daily Illini’s staff has begun training for the year, and we will soon be doing the same, making for a crowded but exciting newsroom. This week’s issue of buzz will be the last to be published on a Thursday. It’s been a good run, and we’ve had our fun on Thursday. It will be a bittersweet goodbye. Next week's issue will hit the racks on Friday, Aug. 31, and we will continue to print every Friday from then on. The Daily Illini will change its print schedule to Monday-Thursday. I’m not quite sure what kind of effect this will have on the magazine, aside from shifting the way we cover certain weekend events that begin on Thursdays. I guess only time will tell. Not only will buzz be changing our print schedule, but we will be changing our calendar. Our new calendar setup will hopefully allow for more editorial control, a better layout, and a more comprehensive compilation of events in the area as they pertain to our magazine and our intended audience. We will still welcome any businesses or event organizers (these could be concerts, classes, fundraisers or anything else) to send in submissions to be included on the calendar. If you’re interested in sending a submission for the calendar, send an e-mail to our managing editor, Dan Durley, at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you’re interested in writing for buzz, you’re in luck! Buzz, as well as all Illini Media publications, will be hiring for the new semester. Buzz will be looking for columnists, reporters, designers and photographers interested in the arts and entertainment fields. Illini Media will be holding info nights on Wednesday, August 28, and Tuesday, September 3. This year, the meetings will be held at Gregory Hall instead of the Illini Media Building, where it was held in the past. I hope to see you there!
That's the way she goes boys.

Walk/bike from campus or MTD line
407 W. Springfield, Urbana
BY KATRINA HALFAKER If youâ€™re new to campus and are just figuring out how huge this place is, get ready: it gets bigger. Quad Day, which takes place on August 25 from 12 - 4 p.m. on the Main Quad, is the day all the different ethnic and cultural groups, social activist councils and countless other organizations pimp themselves out to students. Itâ€™s a day dedicated to engaging new and old interests. Itâ€™s also pretty confusing if youâ€™re a freshman surrounded by thousands of people and activities youâ€™re unfamiliar with. Here are a few ways to make the experience go more smoothly. Dress for the weather. If the forecast says 90% humidity and 40% chance of rain, bring an umbrella. Even if you mess this stage up, you can redeem yourself by bringing a fairly empty backpack. Acquire free stuff. Last year, Pride offered passersby a variety of condoms with a rainbow theme. Catholic Illini gave out T-shirts and most other clubs handed out brochures, pens and plastic cups. Additionally, street performers may be out selling demo CDs and vendors might be peddling products. Itâ€™s a crazy day. This is where the fairly empty backpack is a must. Keep in mind, the event is about having fun and learning your way about campus. Itâ€™s also about making connections and finding groups you can identify with and wish to join. If youâ€™re really interested in something, stop and talk more in depth with a representative from that organization. Get a few phone numbers, exchange a few jokes, make a few friends. Itâ€™s all groovy.

Âť West Wing: About a month ago, I was prodded by friends to begin watching West Wing, a cult television show depicting the inner workings of a democratic White House administration. Thus began one of the most tumultuous relationships of my adult life. West Wing lacks anything resembling subtlety; itâ€™s unabashedly idealistic, political and dry. Each character is given at least one long-winded speech per episode which they use to beat the audience over the head with whatever lesson theyâ€™re supposed to be learning. You canâ€™t help but feel like Aaron Sorkin, the creator and head writer, is very slowly lecturing you. But the real question is: why, why, why do I keep watching President Bartlett and his White House gang season after season? Maybe itâ€™s the same reason why I canâ€™t stop watching romantic comedies. While Sorkinâ€™s happy endings may be unrealistic and overwrought, theyâ€™re also comforting.
Âť Blow darts: There have been two blow dart related injuries in campustown over the past week. Read that again: blow darts. Gone are the guns and knives that plague nightmares. They have been replaced by fucking blow darts. Iâ€™m at a loss for words. Stay safe out there, everyone. And to the perpetrator of these attacks: put down the darts and stop watching Jungle 2 Jungle. Little do you know that you could be charged with attempted homicide if found. Good riddance.

ooking for nutritious, tasty, meals on campus? Signing up for a meal plan is the first step. Whether you are a student eating closest to a particular dorm or you are just traveling through campus, all six dining halls are accessible— even if you are not an enrolled student. For a quick meal or a snack, a majority of the dining halls offer an a la carte location, and on certain days, students can liven up their taste buds and try out the different specialty restaurants.

Parkland Hosts Annual Art and Design Faculty Exhibition BY ANWEN PARROTT
August 19, the Parkland Art Gallery wonâ€™t host a painter from out of state or even a photographer from down the road. Instead, they will spotlight talent from behind their own doors. The annual Art and Design Faculty Exhibition gives Parkland staff an opportunity to walk the proverbial walk and
showcase the unique artistic styles and skills that they have devoted their lives to. â€œItâ€™s a great way to kick off the year and welcome everyone back,â€? Lisa Costello, director of the Parkland Art Gallery, said of the exhibition and itâ€™s opening reception held on Thursday, August 22. â€œItâ€™s almost like Iâ€™m hosting my own party.â€?

Although itâ€™s often difficult to find a happening party on a quiet Thursday evening, the exhibitionâ€™s opening reception is sure to be a fun and informative time for all. It will not only feature incredible pieces of artwork made by local professionals, but also is scheduled to include live music performed by Briggs Houchin Jazz, free food and a chance to interact with the artists themselves. Opening antics aside, the focus remains on the artists themselves, who not only create beautiful things but help others to do so as well. â€œAll 18 [artists] featured work in either the Art and Design or the Graphic Design departments,â€? Costello said. â€œWe have three Graphic Design faculty showing. Itâ€™s nice because thereâ€™s such a good variety of media...thereâ€™s a bit of everything.â€? The â€œeverythingâ€? nature of the exhibit proves to be a wonderful touch, as it allows each artist to show where their heart lies. Jewelry and ceramic work can be found on pedestals placed around the vibrant gallery, while paintings and photographs line the walls. There are intricate slugs carefully carved from local river stone by ceramics and sculpture professor Chris Berti, colorful sushi plates crafted by ceramics
professor Laura Oâ€™Donnell, and a stunningly colored and textured painting of a boy lying beside a polar bear by faculty artist Steve Hudson, who is set to give a gallery talk at the opening event. Hudson, who teaches painting, drawing and color theory at Parkland, has exhibited his work in a few big shows over the past few years, prompting Costello to feature him in this exhibition. â€œHeâ€™s a really great teacher, everyone loves him, and he does such interesting work,â€? Costello said. â€œIt really makes you think, at least for meâ€Ś Obviously he can paint really realistically, but he places such interesting content in his work too. I love how the polar bear and human are identifying.â€? During the opening reception, Hudson will give a 10-15 minute talk about this specific painting, entitled â€œCover," and then will engage in a Q&A with his audience. The Parkland Art and Design Faculty Exhibition will run from Monday, August 19 at 10 a.m. until Saturday, September 21. The opening reception and all the exciting events that come with it will be held on Thursday, August 22, from 6-8 p.m.

Urbana Sweetcorn Festival hits the streets this weekend

is that time of the year again — upwards of 40,000 young people flock back into town, the streets get a bit busier, public spaces become more crowded. Summer is coming to its sad, yet inevitable conclusion. But it wouldn’t be the end of August in CU without the Urbana Sweetcorn Festival, a long-standing, well-attended, free festival that has drawn thousands to the streets of Urbana since its inception in 1975. The Urbana Sweetcorn Festival, presented by the Urbana Business Association, will be held in downtown Urbana this weekend on Main Street between Race and Vine. Festivities will take place from 5 - 11 p.m. on Friday and 11 a.m. - 11 p.m. on Saturday. While there is no charge for merely attending the festival, patrons can pay for activities and food items through tickets that can be purchased at the festival for the price of a dollar apiece. Cynthia Johnson, Executive Director of the Urbana Business Association, estimates that “as many as 50,000” patrons were served at the festival last year, a number festival organizers determined based off ticket sales, beer sales, and a survey taken of the crowd at the festival’s Miller Main Stage. The exact accuracy of these numbers is up for debate, but the fest nonetheless claims the title of “Champaign County’s Largest Free Festival.” Now in its 38th year, around 150 total vendors plan to make an appearance. Though Johnson said that sweetcorn is the main focus of the event, and a large tent will be designated to the vending of the fest’s namesake item, plenty of other booths and tents will be available to customers. “There will be around 150 total vendors, and around 30 of those are food vendors,” Johnson

said. “We’ve got a lot of informational booths, arts and crafts, merchandise. A lot of the local restaurants are coming, too.” Among those restaurants, Johnson mentioned Siam Terrace, Shanghai 1938, Silvercreek, Papa John’s, Po’ Boys and Piano Cafe. She also said that both the Cracked and Empanadas House food trucks will be present to provide patrons with an extremely wide range of options. But the most exciting (and wallet-friendly) aspect of the festival will be the live music and dance performances, presented on two stages. The One Community Together stage will feature several local favorites including Hathaways, Sun Stereo, The Impalas and the Bow-Dacious String Band. Make sure not to miss the new and incredibly fun Bones, Jugs ‘N’ Harmony, which includes former members of Sonny Stubble in an old-timey, jug band format. Headlining the Miller Main Stage will be Kansas, purveyors of classic progressive rock, and a freshfaced 18-year old, Calynn Green. Tons of fans will likely head out to see the big acts, but make sure tow check out some of the local support like Matter of Days and the Tons O’ Fun Band. Aside from food and music, the Urbana Sweetcorn Festival will include the 17th Annual Motor Muster Car Show and numerous kid-friendly-activities, such as pony rides, inflatables, laser tag, a rock wall, a mechanical bull, face painting and balloon animals. Johnson also mentioned a new feature that past patrons should make sure to check out: the “Agricultural Zone.” It will provide an opportunity for kids and their families to learn about the process of bringing corn from farm to the table. For more information on the festival, head to urbanabusiness.com or the Urbana Sweetcorn Festival Facebook page.
hy let the spotlight on corn end when you get home from this year’s Sweet Corn Festival? Grab your canned kernels, your frozen bags and ears of corn too and try out some of these recipes. It’s the perfect time of year and we promise you’ll enjoy. Corn Casserole While this is a Thanksgiving staple in my family, it works any time of year. It’s quick and easy comfort food that you’ll make so often you’ll have the recipe memorized in no time. Makes 4 - 6 servings Prep Time: 10 minutes Cook Time: 50 minutes Ingredients: »1 16 oz. can corn »1 cup cracker crumbs »1/3 cup diced celery »1/4 cup onion »1/4 cup cheddar cheese, cut in pieces or grated »1 teaspoon salt »2 eggs, well beaten »1/4 teaspoon paprika »1 cup milk Combine all the ingredients and pour into a greased casserole. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 50 minutes. (From Ideals Family Cookbook) — Carrie McMenamin Cheese & Corn Chowder Don’t let first impressions deceive you. What looks like a simple, unexciting pot of creamy corn soup (albeit with the fragrant smell of reduced bacon) is immediately elevated into something gorgeous and luscious once a nearly obscene amount of cheese is thrown into the chowder. I promise you, there will be no leftovers, especially if you serve this with a giant hunk of toasted sourdough or French bread. Makes 12 Servings Prep Time: 15 minutes Cook Time: 20 minutes Ingredients: »4 Tablespoons (1/2 Stick) Butter »1 whole Onion, Chopped »3 slices Bacon, Cut Into Pieces »3 whole Bell Peppers, Finely Diced (red, yellow, orange, or green) »5 ears Corn, Kernels Sliced Off »1/4 cup All-purpose Flour (or corn flour/cornmeal for you gluten-free folks) »3 cups Chicken Stock or Broth »2 cups Half-and-half »1 cup (heaping) Grated Monterey Jack* »1 cup (heaping) Pepper Jack* »1/3 cup Sliced Green Onions In a large pot, melt butter over medium-high heat. Cook onions for a couple of minutes. Add bacon and cook for another minute or so, then
add diced bell peppers and cook for a couple of minutes. Finally, add corn and cook for a minute. Sprinkle flour evenly over the top and stir to combine. Pour in broth and stir well. Allow this to thicken for 3 or 4 minutes, then reduce heat to low. Stir in half-and-half, then cover and allow to simmer/thicken for 15 minutes or so. Stir in cheeses and green onions. When cheese is melted and the soup is hot, check seasonings. Add salt and pepper as needed. *I ended up taking the “heaping” part literally and rounded up the total amount of cheeses to 4 cups. (From The Pioneer Woman: http://thepioneerwoman.com/cooking/2011/10/corncheesechowder/) — Jasmine Lee Cornbread with Corn and Jalapenos My first attempt at making this cornbread was a mad-dash scramble to pull something together for my friends’ pre-Thanksgiving potluck. I had a lone box of Jiffy cornbread mix sitting in the pantry, a bag of frozen corn kernels, and a halfempty jar of jalapenos in the fridge. I threw all of them together in a bowl and, twenty minutes later, had a pan full of surprisingly tasty cornbread, prettily studded with pearls of corn and glimpses of pepper. I knew I wanted to recreate it somewhat healthily, and after perusing through the interwebs, realized making cornbread from scratch is a whole lot easier than anticipated. Hence, this is the amalgamation of several different cornbread recipes, but the addition of corn kernels and jalapenos remain the same. Makes 6-8 Servings Prep Time: less than 10 minutes Cook time: 35 minutes Ingredients: »2 tablespoons butter, olive oil, or bacon drippings »1 1/2 cups medium-grind cornmeal »1/2 cup all-purpose flour »1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder »1 teaspoon salt »1 tbsp sugar »1 egg »1 1/4 cup milk, buttermilk, or yogurt, more if needed »1/2 jar of jalapenos, chopped roughly »4-5 ears of corn, kernels chopped off Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Melt butter/oil/drippings into an 8x8 inch or 9x13 baking pan. Set aside. Mix together all dry ingredients and make a well in the center. Crack egg into the milk/buttermilk/ yogurt, whisk together.

EXILE FROM GREEN STREET Freshman guide to off-campus treasures BY BUZZ COMMUNITY STAFF
you think you’ve got CU figured out already? Sure, you visited the University once and checked out the Quad, walked around the Union, maybe even got a fish sandwich at Legends. Little did you know, this town consists of a lot more than just Campustown attractions. Take advantage of your free time before campus begins and really dive into CU headfirst. Our buzz staff of experienced and handsome upperclassmen have created a list to guide you through our off-campus favorites. After reading this, you’ll have the street cred to hang with the hippest locals. Meadowbrook Park 2808 S. Race Street, Urbana The city lights and paved paths of Green Street are an exhilarating part of the freshman experience, but sooner or later you will find yourself craving an escape. Venture beyond the confines of Campustown and into the expansive oasis that is Meadowbrook Park. On the outskirts of Urbana, only a brief walk or bike ride away, lays the 80 acre tallgrass prairie paradise. Take in the aroma and panorama of the native grasses along the undulating three mile hard surface trail that meanders through the prairie. Lined with exotic sculptures, babbling brooks and perhaps a chance deer encounter, this is a perfect way to get the blood flowing with the additional benefit of stunning scenery and fresh air. Arouse your inner child and play a game of hide-and-seek in the largest wooden play structure in all of the land (or at least CU). Whether you pack a picnic or just lie atop the spacious open field that extends along the edge of the prairie, Meadowbrook is all about experiencing the true beauty of the Midwest. Being only a few minutes away, this park is a must for those new and old to the area. — Alyssa Davison The Art Theater 126 W. Church Street, Champaign In the heart of downtown Champaign, The Art Theater is the place for independent movie lovers. The theater shows a wide variety of films, including indie flicks you won’t find at the Savoy 16 and classic pictures from all film eras. Some recent showings include a midnight screening of Ghostbusters, cult favorite The Room, musical favorite Singin’ in the Rain and sci-fi horror classic Alien. Unlike most theaters today that have converted completely to digital projection, The Art Theater has the ability to show 35mm films. The cozy theater also seats 250 moviegoers, is open seven days a week and is the first co-op theater in the nation. Prices are reasonable, especially for college students; adult tickets are $9 and student tickets are $7. On top of the usual popcorn, soda and candy, The Art Theater also serves alcoholic beverages for patrons over 21, a rare occurrence in movie theaters today. Aside from regular movie screenings, the theater can also be rented out for live events, classroom meetings and even weddings. Be sure to check the theater’s calendar of events this November
when it celebrates 100 years in business! — David Robertson Black Dog Smoke & Ale House 201 N. Broadway Avenue, Urbana While many of you may be coming to the University because of its unrivaled reputation, you may be surprised to find that tucked within your new hometown lays a national treasure of palatable proportions. If you’ve never heard of Black Dog, you will soon. An article written by a Maxim reporter named Black Dog Smoke and Ale House the second best “BBQ hot spot” in the nation and for reasons well founded. With meat smoked to perfection and pitch-perfect sides, Black Dog is making CU a foodie attraction. While most newbies to Urbana will be surprised at the quaint size of this establishment, don’t let the lengthy wait deter you from the savory adventures inside. Just beyond the doors awaits some of the most succulent brisket known to man. Sit at the bar and watch the food being prepared in all its olfactory glory. While you won’t be able to relish ale from their extensive collection for a few years, you can wallow in the deliciousness of their cornbread. Composed of beans and pulled pork, cornbread has never been so delectable. The succulent burnt ends and baked sweet potato run out quick, so go early and enjoy. This place will haunt you long after you leave Urbana. — Alyssa Davison Café Kopi 109 N. Walnut Street, Champaign About ten years ago, Café Kopi opened in downtown Champaign. Today Kopi is consistently voted the best café in the area and it’s obvious why. They offer much more than just gourmet coffee, looseleaf tea and cappuccino. They also have a selection of natural vegetable juices, organic and vegan foods, fruit smoothies and even a full liquor menu. Add Baileys, amaretto or Irish whisky to your coffee or choose from a wide selection of beer, wine and scotch. Aside from the comprehensive drink menu, Kopi offers one of the coziest atmospheres of any establishment in CU. I’ve personally spent many cold winter evenings holed up with friends in playing cards or board games. With free wireless internet access, Kopi is also a great place to study for a big exam. If you’re looking to drink coffee on a budget, Café Kopi has daily specials posted on their Facebook page. If you’d like to introduce some culture into your life, Kopi also displays works of art by local artists. If a painting on display catches your eye, they’re for sale as well. Head to Café Kopi – it’s a great place with great coffee. — Alex Slifer Wild Bird Antiques 301 W. Marketview, Champaign It’s hidden and a little hard to reach. No, it’s not that random itchy spot on your back between your shoulder blades – it’s Wild Bird Antiques. Unlike the Chicago and St. Louis area, antique stores are few and far between in Champaign. Even more rare are ones that are themed, hence why Wild Bird Antiques is a particularly special

spot for newbies to investigate. The front of the store smells like, well, bird feed. Bird feed, bird cages and bird feeders frame the entrance and most of the area. Stands close to the checkout area feature humorous magnets and tchotchkes. Only on the far right side and back wall will you find antique items. Many of them, like the featured magnets, are cat themed. Gimmicky? Yes,
but for most items, you’ll get a fair price. For those obsessed with feline couture culture, this is the place to visit. Floor items currently include a vintage cat tapestry, one $16 rhinestone embellished jewelry container in the form of a hollowed cat, small cat caricature picture frames, cat statuettes and framed cat art. — Katrina Halfaker AUGUST 22-29, 2013 buzz 7
GET TO KNOW F
resh off of the release of their sophomore album Oh Lost, Chicago based indie rockers Brighton MA are scheduled to bring their catchy guitar riffs and folkie vocals to the Champaign Public Library as the next installment in the “In Concert at CPL” series. We had a chance to catch up with singer and songwriter Matt Kerstein, who spoke about developing a signature sound, touring with musical heavyweights, and playing in a library. » buzz: You’re promoting your new album Oh Lost on this tour. How does it differ from some of your previous releases? » Matt Kerstein: I think that the main thing we tried to do on this album, opposed to our last album - we put out a couple EPs and one full album - was that we were hoping to find a more cohesive sound and really have our songs sound more like “Brighton MA”. » buzz: How would you define this “Brighton MA” sound that you’re developing? » MK: Well, we think it’s kind of all over the rock and roll map. We have a lot of various elements that come into play, whether it be folk or harder rock or classic rock. We try to focus on the song and do what we feel is right by each song. A lot of the songs end up sounding very different from one another, but in the end similar elements come into play that make it sound like “us.” » buzz: Do you have a favorite song off the new album, one that you think really captures your sound or the feel that you’re going for? » MK: One song that I think came out better than I thought on the recording is a song called “Thirst.” The producer and everyone else played their part really well and it all just kind of came together in the studio. We didn’t have a con-
BRIGHTON MA crete idea of (what we were going for), so it was kind of a nice surprise when it turned out to be something we were really proud of. » buzz: Always exciting when something turns out better than expected. » MK: Yes, exactly. » buzz: Your website mentions that you guys have toured with a lot of big names, such as Arcade Fire, Spoon, and Mason Jennings. How were these tours? » MK: Great. We always try to jump on national action that’s coming through Chicago or the Midwest area, and those were kind of great opportunities for us and we were able to jump on a few shows with all of those people as they were coming through our neck of the woods. They were really interesting and you learn a lot by playing with people like that and it’s a great way to get our name out there, by being on those bills. We were actually down in Champaign a few months ago with Tim Kasher from Cursive. We did about three or four dates with him while we put out this album. And that was another time where we were really learning a lot from guys who are out there doing it. » buzz: Are you influenced heavily by these big bands you’ve played with? You’ve been compared to everyone from The Walkmen to Bob Dylan, where do you draw your inspiration from? » MK: Those are bands that are big enough that I think everyone listens to them. I’ve definitely listened to them. Especially Spoon and The Walkmen and that first Arcade Fire album – I’m definitely influenced by all that stuff. It’s great. Our influences are all over the map. I have my influences for songwriting and things like that. There are the people I grew up loving that we all share as common ground, like Elvis Presley and The Beatles. But within the band,

Sam also loves jazz and Jim is really into avant garde jazz and classical. Joe likes metal. There’s no real one specific influence or genre we’re going for. In fact, I think we’re really trying to be a bit more difficult to pin down within the genre. » buzz: You mentioned getting songwriting inspiration from other artists. Any artists in particular? » MK: Some Bob Dylan. I get Bob Dylan comparisons, but I think that’s because of my voice and not necessarily from the lyric writing. But you know, The Beatles, all of those classic guys have definitely heavily influenced me, growing up at least. But I try to break out of that and be influenced by things like books and movies and you know, whatever else is going on in my life, like drinking with my friends. I think I try to be more influenced by that instead of by other songwriters these days. » buzz: Good way to be. You mentioned playing with
Tim Kasher in Champaign, do you come down to the Champaign-Urbana region often for shows? » MK: Yeah, it’s one of those things where we play around so much that we end up hitting those 5 hour circuits in and around Chicago as often as possible. We played in Champaign pretty regularly and then we stopped for a couple of years. But then when we went down there with Tim Kasher, we realized that we need to make more of an effort to consistently get back there. » buzz: Have you ever played in a library before? » MK: Hm…I don’t think I have actually. We’ve played a lot of random shows but I don’t think we’ve played a library yet, so that’ll be a lot of fun. » Brighton MA will perform at the Champaign Public Library on Sunday from 2-3 p.m. For the full interview, head to readbuzz.com!

“A Clean Start”--things are starting to bubble up.
Spurlock Museum Collaborates with C-U Spinners and Weavers Guild in Exhibit BY LINDSAY GOLDSTEIN

eginning August 20, visitors of the Spurlock Museum will have the chance to experience a collaboration three years in the making, between the museum and the C-U Spinners and Weavers Guild. The exhibit, titled “Inspired By… Works of the C-U Spinners and Weavers Guild”, explores the creation of spun and woven art, drawing on themes and works already in the collection of the Spurlock Museum. Thirty-eight fiber artworks by 26 artists will be displayed in the museum’s Campbell Gallery along with the 27 artifacts that served as inspiration, some of which have not been displayed in the museum for decades. According to Kim Sheahan, the curator of the exhibit, the three years it took to create the exhibit were carefully planned. The first year was all planning. “We picked a handful of pieces from each of the major culture groups we have here in the museum,” said Sheahan, “and we gave that list to members of the guild.” The second year was entirely devoted to the creation of the fiber artworks. According to Sheahan, communication between the guild and the museum was key.
“We didn’t want anybody to walk in with a piece that we didn’t want to display,” she said. “So throughout the year they were making the artwork, we had monthly meetings.” The final year was the creation of furniture and the physical design of the display. “You know what the pieces are going to be… so you plan the exhibit around that so that furniture can be built and everything could be designed,” said Sheahan. In addition to the original artifacts and the new artworks, there will be a number of other displays to explore. A touchable section, featuring pieces of textile creations by Guild members, will allow visitors to physically feel the fibers and the woven pieces similar to the displayed art. Another section features short artist biographies and videos taped with the artists, recalling their inspirations and how they went about creating their pieces. “We have got all kinds of stories,” said Sheahan. The exhibit will be on display from August 20, 2013, to March 9, 2014.
