CAM Holiday Updates and Happenings

contributed by Kristin M. Zosa Puleo, Event and Program Coordinator

The second trimester at JWU is underway, and in just under two short weeks, the university will close for Winter Break. Here's what's happening at the museum and on campus, and what's to come in 2015!

The teaching lab has expanded to accommodate more classes! In the space of the former Dinner at the White House exhibit, we have added a space that looks more like a classroom to accommodate presentations and lectures. On display there are the latest food truck branding projects from the talented students in Deana Marzocchi's print design class.

On Saturday, December 13, the museum will be hosting a hot chocolate bar. We are encouraging you to wear your tacky holiday sweaters and enjoy a warm beverage with your choice of toppings. This treat will be free for JWU students, staff, and faculty, and free with the cost of admission for the general public. Join us at 12pm until the hot chocolate stops flowing! RSVPs are not necessary, but feel free to visit our Facebook page to join the event, and share it with your friends!

In March 2015, we will be installing a new exhibit, in conjunction with the NCECA (National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts) conference happening in Providence. The exhibit, curated by the founders of Empty Bowls, a grassroots movement to end hunger, is a retrospective celebrating of the organization's 25 year history.

Finally, we plan to bring back Project Cupcake in 2015! Keep an eye on the social media (Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram) and your inbox for details!

One last note, the museum will be closed for Winter Break from December 20, 2014 through January 5, 2015. There's still plenty of time to visit before then, but if we don't see you, have safe and happy holidays, and have a happy new year!
