Marlboro College

News Performances, Exhibits, and Special Events Hail the Culmination of the Year’s Creative Efforts

Students at Marlboro College will present art, films, photographs and other bodies of work on campus and in Brattleboro throughout the month of May as part of the Plan of Concentration.  The Plan is a self-designed, rigorous exploration of an academic and/or artistic subject. Working one-on-one with faculty, each student produces an extensive body of work involving independent research and innovative content.

Student exhibits of painting, drawing, wood sculpture, glass, photography and collage will be shown in the Drury Gallery May 1st through 11th.   “Disjointed: A Joint Effort,” is an exhibit by photography students to be presented at the In-Sight Photography Project, located at 49 Flat Street, in Brattleboro VT, where several of the students are also teaching photography. The students have been experimenting with alternative photographic processes ranging from 19th century Van Dyke, to 21st century digital methods. The show will open May 5th and be included in the Brattleboro Gallery Walk, a year-round, festive first Friday stroll down town, May 5 from 5:30p.m. to 8:30p.m. 

The Spring Student Film Festival takes place on May 3, at 7p.m. in Whittemore Theater.  The evening will feature work by more than twenty students.  The documentary film class will screen first person documentaries, interviews, and more. The acting and directing class will show scenes and short films.  Some of the content of this event may not be appropriate for younger audiences.

“Images of Love: An Intimate Experience,” is sophomore Seth Bowman’s interactive “love experience,” presented in the dance studio of the Serkin Center for the Performing Arts on the Marlboro Campus May 4, at 7p.m.  The installation features five finger painted canvases, all hung from the Serkin dance studio ceiling.   There are also performing characters, dancers, music, and sculpture involved in the event.  Some images may not be suitable for younger audiences.

A production of Edward Albee's first play, “The Zoo Story” will be performed May 5 and 6 at Whittemore Theater.  This play contains mature content and some violence.
