This weekend marks the beginning of March Break, and nothing says slacking off
from school more than taking away an hour of our precious free time!?!
Boo science, boooooo!
Not that this really affects University students. We had our “reading” week ages ago.
Supposedly, this was so we could collect our scattered brains in
prep for the madness that is end of term projects.
For those newbie readers who are unfamiliar with what the Bissell Bombers
work on between our knitted public installations, we’re all trying to
be hella professional museum curators, programmers, grant writers, etc.
This month quite a few grads will be showing off our biggest assignments as
part of an exhibitions class. Projects range from displays of whimsical dreamscapes at the
Gladstone Hotel, innovative instruments from the Dunlap Institute for Astronomy, explorations
of how Inuit language reflects historical and contemporary Inuit culture and identity, and many more!
Now this tired little grad student is off to enjoy some sunshine before
back to editing her panel text and tombstone labels.
