The AP Seniors’ Big Night

What a turnout; what a love-in. Kelly commandeered the camera for the most part, so yours truly ended up in such a large percentage of the shots that this presentation is handicapped by modesty. Still:

Ph.D. Hoodies’ Hour Is Nigh

wrongkind

No, not that kind. This kind:

 

No to sound (write?) alarmist, but this may be the last opportunity ever to acquire a Photo Devoto hoodie. Contact D. at the school e-address. Mere hours remain.

First Crit of the Year

 Identify for yourself each piece on display.

Which piece(s) hold the wall best from a distance? Which is/are most rewarding upon close inspection?

 Which is a picture you would do differently; how? (This is not meant to be “advice” to the maker.)

 Which picture makes logical or surprising use of the space within the frame?

 Think of something you can say about your own pictures that will help the rest of us to appreciate them, or to understand them better.

We Are The Hoppers, My Friend

Here’s our April 30 AP field trip in a nutshell:

1. Buy your Metra tickets. $6.00 round trip for students with ID. If you’re smart, and if you can, you’ll do this before Tuesday morning. Lines are typically longer when folks are buying monthly passes.

2. Gimme $4.50 to load the CTA cards for our two rides on the El, if you haven’t already.

cta-card

2a. This leaves you $89.50 for lunch. mostly-about-the-benjamins

3. Bring a pencil with you, in order to take notes at each exhibit.

4. We take a short bus ride on a short bus from the huge school to the depot.

5. We… y’know… commute.

6. The French Market awaits.

Oh, you haven’t been?

7. We descend from the County Building to the bowels of the Loop, surfacing at the Cultural Center.

8. The Gage Gallery of Roosevelt University presents pictures from Guantanamo:

9. The Brown Line transports us to River North.

UPDATE! The Wells Street bridge is out again for reconstruction of the second half, so we’ll take the Red Line (the State Street subway) instead.

10. We hike to the Newberry Library to see the annual show by the Chicago Calligraphy Collective:

11. Zigzag through the Rush Street area, in broad daylight, to the Loyola University Museum of Art for Lewis Kostiner’s exhibit “Choosing Fatherhood-A Photographic Journey.” http://www.luc.edu/luma/exhibitions/upcomingexhibitions/lewiskostinerchoosingfatherhoodaphotographicjourney/

12. The Water Tower, the actual Water Tower, has “Animal Kingdom,” a show of posters for bands and concerts:

13. Munch on luncheon at one of 6 or 7 quality joints along Chicago Avenue.

14. Rapid Transit back to the Loop, and sprint to the train.

UPDATE: The return will either be the Red Line again (and hike to Ogilvie Center) or just hoofin’ it from River North. I suspect we’ll prefer the former. 

15. Work on your notes, so that you may be quoted on this here blawwg.

16. Borington. Walk back to school. Or not.
