Acting is an art of deceit, but it is also an art of understanding. The actor puts herself into the character’s shoes and, for the duration of the performance, becomes a different person. The amount of empathy gained from such an experience is not to be understated. Actors work and study hard to achieve this

Three seniors produce typography-based art show TYPE

Creative design exists in places one is often prone to overlook—the woodwork of a coffee table, the shape and size of a book, the contours of a shoe. Somebody made a conscious choice to design these things in a specific way. The way the alphabet is stylized is no different, from the no-nonsense of Times New

Artist Spotlight: Dakota Williams

Brass instruments are capable of producing a uniquely grand and epic sort of sound, inimitable by any other musical instrument. A key example of a brass instrument is the horn, commonly, though incorrectly, known as the French horn.

Orchestra concert explores music from the Americas

To the layman, the word “orchestra” often suggests highly classical music that is difficult for anyone who is not a devoted musician to appreciate. On Sunday, Oct. 13, however, the Lawrence University Symphony Orchestra played their first show of the year

Optimistic Feral Children performs in Cloak Theater

Seeing as this generation of college students undoubtedly grew up watching re-runs of “Whose Line is it Anyway?” on ABC Family, there can be no question regarding the current appeal of improvisational comedy. That’s why last Friday, Oct. 4, Lawrence’s improv team Optimistic Feral Children (OFC) had a near-full audience in the Cloak Theater for

The Artist Spotlight: Anthony Capparelli

Tall, spindly, good-humored, straightforward and humble. These characteristics form a basic composite of the man who is senior Anthony “Tony” Capparelli, piano performance major extraordinaire.
