Changing Signs Jan30

Changing Signs

Visiting the restroom seems a like a mundane and easy thing to do for most people. You walk in, do your business and leave. Maybe you stop to fix your hair or chat with someone while you wash your hands, but typically the most anxiety you’re going to run into is an empty paper towel dispenser. Up until recently for transgender and non-binary students, however, the experience has been much more complicated. Luckily, for many transgender and non-binary students on the Santa Fe University of Art and Design campus, this is becoming less of an issue. The library has just opened a new gender neutral bathroom for students whom going to the...

Oscar Animations Jan30

Oscar Animations

The 2015 Oscar-nominated Shorts Program, screening Jan. 30—Feb. 5 at The Screen, is celebrating its 10-year anniversary, and as expected the animated selects do not fail to impress! Though disappointed in the lack of animated hosts (the giraffe and ostrich from last year was a hoot) the artistic splendor of the pieces this year needs no help in keeping the audience entertained. From eight selects and four admirable mentions, the Oscar-nominated animations range from Disney’s sentimental story to the independent somber sketch.   “Me and My Moulton” A Childhood In Norway (Torill Kove, Norway) Partnering with the National Film Board of...

Hangin’ w/ SWA

Twelve writers sat in a circle on couches or chairs, under dim lighting. They chatted about classes, favorite authors, weird things they wrote or wanted to write. Student Writers Association’s Jan. 27 meeting resembled a coffee shop more than a classroom. “The quiet, comfortable...

Celebrating Choice Jan29

Celebrating Choice

New Mexico’s 2015 Legislature is in progress, with the first Republican controlled house in 52 sessions. As such, there is cause for concern regarding reproductive choice issues as three anti-abortion bills are about to be introduced on the floor. On Jan. 29, more than 100 community...

An International Welcome

  Students not paying attention to fliers posted around the SFUAD campus are surprised to hear pulsing bass emanating from the cafeteria the evening of Jan. 23. The Multi-Cultural Foods Expo, put on by Student Life, has taken over the Grill. The event begins at 7:45 p.m. and is accompanied by a live DJ with karaoke. The gate opens just a few minutes later than usual with students lining up for an evening snack. In addition to standard Grill fare, Bon Appetit provides a spread of international food, featuring cuisine from Scandinavia, Costa Rica and Mexico. Fried plantains stand on a plate above open-faced shrimp and salmon sandwiches....

Valley of the Dolls Dec16

Valley of the Dolls

The scene is a familiar one for anyone with rowdy friends who buy beer on a tight budget. Cans of Schlitz and Budweiser litter the living room, someone passes a bong and everyone looks glam. This is not an average Friday night party, though. The cans are mere centimeters tall and each partygoer is a plastic Barbie doll complete with eerie unwavering looks of dull ecstasy. This is the overall gist of the music video for “Picture Perfect” by the retro pop band Yacht Club, co-directed by band frontman Ben Cook and SFUAD film major Emmett Meade.

Holiday Glow Dec16

Holiday Glow

If you’re looking for some Holiday adventures this month, two luminous and art-influenced spots to visit are Glow: A Winter Lights Event at Santa Fe’s Botanical Garden, running Dec. 4-Jan. 3 on Thursdays-Saturdays 5-8 p.m. and Saturdays 5-9 p.m., and the twinkle-lit open house events at Madrid, an artist’s destination on Turquoise Trail National Scenic Highway. On opening night, Dec. 4, Public Relations Director Fran Cole admires that along with the hundreds of holiday light fixtures illuminating Santa Fe’s Botanical Garden, the nearly full moon adds its own ambiance. “Did we order that or what!?” she says. For the month of December, Cole...

Home for the Holidays! Dec15

Home for the Holidays!

We went around campus and asked some students and faculty what they were looking forward to for the Holidays. Jackalope Magazine: What do you look forward to for the Holidays? Derek Morales: I’ll be heading back home to Connecticut to be with the family. I’ll be working some seasonal part time for some money. I might even work on some of designs over the break. Jehad N Khateeb: I won’t be doing anything special. I will go to San Francisco with Sandra [Schoenstein] maybe in January.  I am Muslim so I don’t celebrate Christmas. Sandra Schoenstein: I’m very happy that this is my first Christmas away from family. I am not very fond of Christmas...

Nine

The lights come up on five white boxes. A young man climbs up onto the center box so that he stands above the rest of the group. He begins to conduct them through a chorus of angelic ‘la la las’ and, all at once, the show is underway. The Musical Theater Workshop class has...

Underwear Society Bares All

At the end of the semester, few people want to be starting on new projects. But this is when the members of Underwear Society, SFUAD’s student-run sketch comedy group, come together to write and put on their show. For 13 years, Underwear Society has amused College of Santa Fe and now SFUAD students with its antics, putting on one show per semester during finals. Shows usually are held in the Weckesser Studio Theatre in the Greer Garson Theater, but this semester, due to changes within the theater department, the show will go on in Alumni Hall. The show consists of sketches written individually by members or collectively as a group, using...

Advice for Finals

Finals week is usually the most stressful time of year for most college students. There is, however, light at the end of the tunnel, as students will receive a four-week break at the end of the week. Now to get through that week. In preparation, Jackalope tapped Creative Writing and...
