In a post-MTV world, the music video has become an art unto itself. It is an essential part of the production process, important both as a way to represent the music and as a way to broaden its appeal emotionally, intellectually and artistically. The effect is less narrative-focused than film, but more visceral and striking

Elmer Rice’s “Street Scene” explores emotions and problems of daily life

Thursday, Feb. 20, through Saturday, Feb. 22, Lawrence University put on four performances of Elmer Rice’s Pulitzer-winning play “Street Scene.” A cast and crew of over fifty students developed this adaptation under the careful direction of Professor Kathy Privatt, with costume design by Kärin Kopischke.

Newly established Slam Poetry Club hosts first open mic event

Writers at Lawrence have gathered under organizations like Tropos and the Creative Writing Club (CWC) to showcase their work and to help each other improve.

Bunke stars in “Sweetest Swing in Baseball” for senior project

Mental health issues, when discussed in creative works, walk that fine line between comedy and tragedy. “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest,” “The Magic Mountain,” “Girl, Interrupted;” it’s an endlessly fascinating topic that can be viewed with equal merit through a variety of lenses. Last weekend, the Lawrence University theater department performed a fine example

Artist Spotlight: Olav Bjørnerud

Although Lawrence’s mascot is the Viking, the campus is tragically deficient in Viking décor and paraphernalia. That’s why senior Olav Bjørnerud decided to construct a Viking ship-inspired sculpture and have it installed in the Buchanan Kiewit Wellness Center this year. “It’s always been strange to me that there wasn’t a Viking ship on campus,” Bjørnerud
