Alphabet Soup: UDP x FNX
Our annual collaboration with the Ugly Duckling Presse, courtesy of Prof. Lee Norton, is currently in the works! This year, our theme involves STRIKETHROUGH because we want to express that behind every seemingly effortless masterpiece is a hyperactive artist, writer, photographer, or designer, crossing things out and tweaking their work endlessly. Creativity is always changing and evolving, getting better (or maybe worse) as it goes along…the important thing is to never stop being creative. The creativity of our layout editors will be coming at you soon. If you hate it, feel free to make some strikethroughs of your own (we won’t mind).
Ekphrastics in Practice
As our spring semester began, our Ekphrastics Advisor, Prof. Norton, began to excite Phoenix members with weekly visits to the Godwin-Ternbach museum (on the CUNY Queens College campus), where they participated in activities like 3D printing and making their own inked canvas bags! More to come as the year goes on!
Pictured here on the right is our group experiencing 3D printing at the museum!
Join us on Thursdays in Room 404 to get in on the action!
