Millay Alumni Good News & Updates

We will be posting here more regularly the news and notes from alumni. What better way to start than with a huge congrats to Julia Dault (July, 2011) for her work being pictured in the NY Times today! She is part of the New Museum's second Triennial exhibit "The Ungovernables" opening this Wednesday.

And here for the New Musuem.

The photo above is of one of the many unique table decorations designed by Julia and fellow resident Heidi Jensen for the Colony's Summer Party last July. All the words were Edna's!

UPDATES for 2012 Workshop Schedule

At the Colony:

The Beauty of the Image with Carole Maso
May 30 to June 2

In this class, we will discuss how to access and use resonant emblems from one's life and transform them into fictive shapes of meaning, urgency and beauty. We will work on making our own forms, exploring various literary, musical, philosophical and visual modes in order to get close to our subjects.

Generating Sound in Poetry with Tracie Morris
August 30 to September 2

In this course we will explore the relationship between body, page and voice. At the end of the course students can present page-based or space-based work to the community.

We'll be doing physical exercises and writing. The workshop is not restricted to any one medium and a cross-disciplinary approach is welcomed.
