This past week was full of activities at the Bates College Museum of Art. On Monday, January 23 the museum held a pop-up exhibition show on Lisbon Street. The visiting artist, Nugamshi, performed his Calligraffiti – an intersection between.
Last Friday January 20, Bates College was filled with the unexpected. The comedy team Mission IMPROVable presented their Always Original show in Memorial Commons. The show is constantly new because it is created on the spot based on audience.
Contemporary art museums are weird. You go past the reception and enter an unusual place where anything is possible. You see canvasses painted with one single tone of red and you see benches on which no one can sit. If you are lucky enough, you will.
