Every Monday from 3-5 pm swing by Innovation at CC for Creative Mondays!

We will have collaging materials, paint, paper, drawing materials, and more! The event is unstructured, so students may stay as long as they want and work on anything they want. So come by and doodle, experiment with materials, write, work on a sketchbook, take a break from your thesis (or get inspired for your thesis), start a side project, hangout, and mess around! No creative experience required.

And if you need ideas, Jane Hilberry, Professor of English and Creativity, will be there to help jumpstart your creative process.

In engagement with the anti-racism external review and The Butler Center’s “10 Ways CC Can Work on Becoming an Anti-racist Institution,” Tutt Library has created a display of resources that address this vital topic. Our hope is that this display will make access to these resources more readily visible and available for the campus community, providing the opportunity to “read and engage on topics of racism, white supremacy, and oppression for their own learning (and un-learning).” Stop by and check out materials from the display on the 1st floor of Tutt Library across from the Circulation Desk.
In addition, the library has also created a Lib Guide online as a space for these (& other) resources to remain accessible & to grow. See the “Suggest a Resource” link at: nam04.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fcoloradocollege.libguides.com%2Fantiracism&data=02%7C01%7CStudentDigest%40coloradocollege.edu%7C1c19ec4deb934a74409208d6b3cc8cca%7Ccfc7b13c1…

AH 200 – Topics in Art History: Turn of the Century Art of London, Paris & Vienna

Artistic and related intellectual, social and cultural developments in three important capitals of Europe circa 1880-1910. We will investigate the impact on art of this age of uncertainty and transition from traditional to modernist points of view, following themes of degeneration and decadence, anxiety and the inner life, and the preoccupation with sexuality, especially androgyny and the fatal woman. The class will examine a number of artists in depth, including Toulouse-Lautrec and Redon in Paris; Klimt and Schiele in Vienna; Burne-Jones and Beardsley in London. We will consider their work in relation to Freud, Schopenhauer, and Oscar Wilde, among others, as well as their repudiation of Victorian morals.

On March 30th, 2019 at 7pm in the Kathryn Mohrman Theatre Colorado College and its Africana Intellectual Project will have the pleasure of welcoming hip-hop legend Talib Kweli for a conversation followed by a concert. This is the inaugural event in the AIP’s series entitled “Black Art(s): Radical Potentialities”.



The ambition of the series is to broaden the traditional definition of “art” and use that expanded territory to examine the potential for various practices to serve as components of a project of radical political, social, and cultural change and exchange.



Talib Kweli is a renowned practitioner of the art of hip-hop and is known for pushing the boundaries of his practice beyond the music industry. Because of this, he is an ideal choice for the AIP’s first event.



Tickets are available in the Worner Center.
