*** NOTE ***
Students in the Art History Department planned and presented an exhibition on the influence of jazz music on a number of Canadian artists as their final project. The exhibit, continuing at the FOFA Gallery until Dec. 14, highlights the work of artists like Betty Goodwin, Guido Molinari and Sylvia Safdie, to name a few.
Much of the work in the exhibit was culled from the Leonard and Bina Ellen Art Gallery collection, although the students also worked with the Gail and Stephen A. Jarislowsky Institute for Studies in Canadian Art, the University Archives and members of the Fine Arts faculty.
In addition to the exhibit, the students coordinated a symposium on Nov. 25 and a vernissage featuring a jazz trio.
The organizing committee is shown here (above) at the exhibit in front of Sam Borenstein's View of Montreal. From left to right are Shauna Janssen, Louise Lemieux, Bruno Andrus, Karolina Tomaszewska, Anna-Maria Moubayed, Marianne Drolet-Pare, Claudia Oliveira, Kristen Johnson and Dacil Kurzweg.
