Drawing Across Disciplines on October 2 is an interdisciplinary cross pollination over a compressed period of time, a marathon of communal activity put on by artists, designers and architects in the fields of Studio Art, Design, Architecture, Theater Set design, and Radio- Television-Film at the University of Texas at Austin. These include faculty members Melissa Miller, Canay Tulunay, Samantha Krukowski, Karen Maness and Hana Hillerova. Drawing Across Disciplines is a continuation of a program started last year. We asked "What is drawing? Why study it? Why teach it?" and exhibited student’s work from various disciplines across campus produced in separate situations, examining the utility of drawing. This year we set up a 12 hour activity at the CRL space, where students and teachers from the UT community will spin a drawing covering the entire floor of the gallery space into a three-dimensional immersive environment. We are interested in the set of questions that the experimental immediate interaction of widely divergent modes of thinking will suggest. Please bring your pencils, markers, scissors and glue guns.

The core of HEYDAYS is a 24-hour marathon orchestrated by the undergraduate students from the Department of Art and Art History. We want to tap into their energy and give them a chance to show us what this is all about. This activity starts on Saturday, October 9, 12 noon and runs until 12 noon on Sunday October 10. Come early and stay late, bring your friends and family. You can draw, collage, paint, make puppets, buttons and costumes, lift weights, hula-hoop, win an MC battle or watch students’ artsy videos. Sing songs and listen to DJs during the day and Totally Wreck bands at night. There will be an exhibition of student work as well. Please bring your art tools and materials.

On the Thursdays of October 7 and 14 at 8 pm there will be happenings staged by the Transmedia students from the Department of Art and Art History. The October 14 happening CONVENTION coincides with Ryan Junell’s RNC Video Project 2004, to be screened in the parking lot of Flatbed Press. http://www.junell.net/
