April 25, 2022 - Cause for Paws Fundraising Event

Cause for Paws

The Cause for Paws fundraising event is hosted by a group of senior design students at UMD. They are seeking to raise money for Animal Allies here in Duluth, MN. The event will take place on Tuesday April 26th, from 4-6 p.m. The exhibition itself will remain open at the Tweed Museum from April 26th-May 6th. The Cause for Paws Fundraising Event will feature artwork for sale from Duluth artists, students, and the animals themselves. There will be live music and refreshments during the event while viewing the art. Following the event will be a brief celebration as we reveal the amount raised from the event.

This group of UMD students share a passion for animals and impacting their local Duluth community. Animal Allies has been apart of the Duluth community for over 60 years and continues to be a growing and inspirational non-profit. Financial donations make a huge difference and aid in buying food, bedding and other supplies. “Many of these animals need veterinarian care, medical assistance and spaying/neutering. Your donations will help provide the care abandoned animals need until a suitable home is found for them” (Animal Allies). The Cause for Paws Fundraising Event is a great way to show your support for the furry friends in our community.

The Cause for Paws Fundraising Event is part of an annual ‘friendly competition’ between the multiple sections of the UMD Dept. of Art & Design’s senior capstone studios. Designed to help the students create a positive social impact in their local community under the guidance of David Short, Assoc. Professor of Graphic Design, and Graphic Design Area Chair. The fundraising event has raised several thousand dollars for a variety of local twin ports not-for-profits over the past six years.

Pippin is determined to be extraordinary. But will the price be too high? Known for Stephen Schwartz’s score, and Bob Fosse’s original direction, "Pippin" explores what makes a meaningful life.

"Pippin," the much-loved musical with the soft 70s pop musical score, written by Stephen Schwartz decades before he changed the musical theatre landscape with Wicked.

February 14, 2022 - Special Event: Illusion Theater | PRESENT!

Theatre PRESENT

SPECIAL EVENT:
Presented by UMD Theatre
Illusion Theater | PRESENT!
Written and performed by T. Mychael Rambo
PRESENT is the story, in word and song, of T Mychael’s life and career. Through a mix of songs in all styles–Musical Theater, Jazz, Gospel, Pop, and original music—and stories written by T Mychael, PRESENT explores his journey as he overcomes homelessness, addiction and personal injury to find success as a performer and teacher/mentor to youth throughout Minnesota. T Mychael credits his success on the ability to be “present” in his life with music and how his music is now a “present” he offers an audience.

Sara Blaylock joined the Art History faculty in the Department of Art and Design at UMD in 2017, after completing her PhD in Visual Studies at the University of California Santa Cruz. To date, the bulk of her research has concerned the experimental art, film, and visual culture of the German Democratic Republic during the 1980s. Broader interests include official cultural policy in state socialism, the art and visual culture of the Cold War East and West, fiction and documentary film from the Eastern Bloc, as well as theories of aesthetics and politics, visuality, and feminism. Blaylock's research has appeared in a number of academic and arts forums, both in English and in translation. Her first book Parallel Public: Experimental Art in Late East Germany is with the MIT Press (2022). Its publication coincides with an exhibition she co-curated with Dr. Sarah James, "Anti-Social Art: Experimental Practices in Late East Germany," held at the Tweed Museum of Art from January 18 - May 15, 2022.
