Alumni Connection Social
The Alumni Connections Social give students an opportunity to talk with alumni to learn what it means to carry ideas, skills, passions and Warren Wilson experiences into the world. Accomplished alumni will share their experiences in their fields and transitioning from Wilson, while students can share thoughts and ask questions about job or internship searches.
Weavings by Robin Johnston will be on view alongside collaborative works by the WWC Fiber Arts Crew.
Robin Johnston’s work deals with measuring time and capturing moments as they pass. She collects various data such as sleep patterns and moon cycles to create conceptually driven woven works. Johnston holds an MFA in textiles from California College of the Arts and recently completed a 3-year artist residency at Penland School of Crafts.
“Exit, Pursued By a Bear by Lauren Gunderson”
WWC Theatre Department
This production is part of the Warren Wilson College Theatre 2015-2016 season Not Suitable For Children: Crisis. Catharsis. Comedy. More information, including times and tickets, will be available soon.
The Story: Nan has decided to teach her abusive husband Kyle a lesson. With the help of her friend Simon (acting as her emotional and actual—cheerleader) and a stripper named Sweetheart, she tapes Kyle to a chair and forces him to watch as they reenact scenes from their painful past. In the piece de resistance, they plan to cover the room in meat and honey so Kyle will be mauled by a bear. Through this night of emotional trials and ridiculous theatrics, Nan and Kyle are each freed from their pasts in this smart, dark, revenge comedy.
