2018 Grad Picnic!!!!
Time: 6:00 - 9:00 pm.
Location: Cohen Plaza
Fall Practice Based Studios in the Center for Social Design..
SD 350/SD 5350, PRACTICE-BASED STUDIO (3 CREDITS)
TUESDAY 9-3 OR FRIDAY 9-3
In this immersive, semester-long studio course, you will learn and practice the fundamentals of human-centered design, a collaborative process that uses methods like one-on-one interviews, user workshops, and rapid prototyping to ensure that your designs reflect the needs, behaviors, and preferences of your users. Whether you’re a graphic designer, a sculptor, or a filmmaker, you can use human-centered design to ensure your work is created with, not just for, communities.
From designing a food truck that brings fresh produce to urban food deserts to reimagining the HIV testing process to reduce stigma, this course tackles issues that matter. Students work as a single interdisciplinary project team with a community partner for the entire semester, so you will gain deep experience in an issue impacting Baltimore. The course’s topic and community partner will be announced in the beginning of the semester; past partners have included Baltimore City Health Department, Baltimore City Public Schools, and Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.

Social Ingredients, curated by Rebecca Lu (MFA Curatorial Practice '18) explores the significance of meal production and consumption as both a social component of everyday life and a meaningful art practice through sculpture, installation, video, performance, and public programs. Featuring artists Nobutaka Aozaki, Christine Ferrera, Rosemary Liss, Christine Stiver and Tracie Jiggetts, and Tattfoo Tan, Social Ingredients provides an artistic viewpoint on the preparation, hosting and consumption of food, examining how people’s relationships with others are influenced by the meals they eat together, while creating a platform for diverse audiences to connect their everyday life with art.

Art of the ancient Americas at the Walters Art Museum, Baltimore - Internship!
Duties this summer may include:
--Resarching and cataloguing objects in the collection (you can see examples at art.thewalters.org) in preparation for an exhibition of ancient American art to be installed in October 2018, and for a broader re-installation in 2019
--Working on a symposium scheduled for December regarding the installation and display of pre-Columbian art, from the late 19th through early 21st centuries in the United States
--Outreach to the Creative Alliance to gather feedback on what kinds of programming people would like to see at the Walters.
--So, you'll get research, administrative, and public speaking experience, something to put on your resume, and likely a warm recommendation letter from me.
Because of the nature of the material, I am seeking someone who is at least proficient in written Spanish (to read sources), but if you have any interested members who speak an indigenous language of the Americas, that would be amazing.
The application is due April 21 and full information can be found here: https://thewalters.org/about/jobs/intern/ If people have questions, please have them email or call me.
