“It’s not easy being green”

Canalscape turns ASU Art Museum green

Actually, it isn’t all that difficult. Especially when the Canalscape installation is in full swing at ASU Art Museum – we have green plants all over the front of the building and in the Nymphaeum (that’s our swanky name for our front entry area that’s located down the stairs). This is going to be an exciting project, and one that I personally hope becomes reality in the near future. Imagine seeing a currently-dull-and-uninhabited canal from the street, fully redesigned with parks, or shopping, or restaurants, or anything creative that reflects the neighborhood around it. We may soon have (more!) really wonderful spaces around our fair city that are inviting, relaxing, invigorating – our very own oases.

Come see what it’s about at the opening reception on Tuesday, November 10, from 6 – 9 pm at ASU Art Museum. It’s free. There will be food, drink, music and a dance performance! All this amid the fun of Tempe Greenstreets, happening outside our door on Mill Avenue in conjunction with the U.S. Greenbuild Conference. It’s going to be an exciting evening!


…in case you missed it, the title reference.

sharing the music of the holidays

from Indiana State University- a great a cappella group (with a wicked falsetto). If this doesn’t make you smile then you really are a grinch!

Thanks to Peter Shankman for sharing!

another upcoming event!

While the holidays are quickly upon us, we still have things going on at ASU Art Museum! The evening of December 2, our latest installment of Night Moves takes place. Night Moves is part of Night Series, in which the Museum partners with the Herberger College of the Arts departments of Theatre & Film, Music or Dance. Night Moves is the partnership with Dance, get it? :)

So, at 7pm on Tuesday, December 2, MFA student Yeongwen Lee will host a short workshop out on the plaza that discusses body movement and space. The Museum will be open for the evening allowing visitors to peruse the galleries and in two of the galleries, you’ll encounter the dancers performing their original piece.  Additionally, there will be another music and video performance by Jesse Meeker and his friends, Human Mirror Project. You’ll find the guys in the main stairwell on your way into the Museum.

Dance, music, video and art- a great way to spend the holiday season! It’s all free and open to the public. We hope to see you here!
