Selected Artworks from VPA 2301 Critical Issues in the Arts 
Art Building South Gallery - Through December 10th

This course is designed to expand students' understanding of artistic practice as both reflecting and shaping socio-cultural conditions around the world. Students enroll in this course from across the university to engage in an interdisciplinary and collaborative analysis of music, the visual arts, theatre, and dance as fundamental to the health and survival of society. Special attention is paid to the relationship of the arts to their broader social environments as well as the formal, theoretical, ethical, political, and professional contexts of artistic production/reception. No prior knowledge of the arts is necessary.

Ryder Richards: Empowerment 
Studio 1 at CASP, Friday, December 7th, 6-9 PM

Ryder Richards

Studio 1 at CASP is pleased to present Empowerment by artist Ryder Richards as the second of four programs that focus on vital resources of the South Plains. As a previous Lubbock-ite, Ryder decided it would be fitting to generate "free power" at a high cost and net loss by building a DIY wind turbine. Made from a motorized bike wheel, lots of YouTube videos, and an excess of time, the exhibit is Ryder's participation in the psychopathology of DIY citizenry.

"The online DIY community has helped me be fulfilled. My new focus on tangible problems and solutions removes the need for problematic discourse, making something cool is empowering. And I'm helping the economy with lots of Amazon and Home Depot purchases." ~ Ryder Richards
