A sea of orange and black swept across campus last weekend. Alumni marched through FitzRandolph Gate with orange and black blazers, costumes, ties, hats, and banners — proudly wearing and carrying their university colors.
Perusing the galleries of an art museum, we often view artworks as portals into history. Less often do we contemplate the history of the physical piece in front of us. What we see is often enhanced by the quiet yet immensely difficult work of art conservators. On May 2, Princeton University Art Museum’s conservator, Bart J.C. Devolder, delivered this year’s Friends Annual Mary Pitcairn Keating Lecture: “A New Day for Art Conservation at the Art Museum.” During his talk, Devolder outlined the past, present, and future of conservation at the museum, shedding light on his own role in this trajectory.
Maestro Gustavo Dudamel of the Los Angeles Philharmonic and the Simón Bolívar Youth Orchestra of Venezuela concluded his season as the University’s first-ever Artist-in-Residence in front of a packed auditorium Saturday.
Picture this. The date: March 21. The time: 10 p.m. The place: my front yard. (You’ve likely never seen my front yard, though, so just imagine your own front yard — or, if you don’t have a yard, picture Frist’s South Lawn.) It’s the night of the Worm Moon, the last full moon before the spring equinox. Now picture me standing in the middle of it all (which might be a little weird if you’re picturing your own front yard, and doubly so if you don’t know me, but never mind that), gazing up at the moon, shadowed by wandering clouds and surrounded by winking stars. Perhaps an airplane soars across its diameter, letting the gentle buzz of its engine mingle with the crickets’ chirps. Perhaps a tree’s leaves fall, soar upwards on the wind, brush against the moon’s soft, yellow glow.
From an outside perspective, the stationery store seemed irrevocably ordinary. My friend and I were walking along Newbury Street in Boston during spring break when we first encountered the shop. Its interior held an impressive collection of writing utensils on a table extending the entire length of the store, countless stacks of notebooks to choose from, and small gizmos and other knick-knacks peppered throughout the room. A stationery fanatic myself, I was seduced by the vast range of options, obsessively uncapping and capping different pens and paging through all the notepads to test the strength and grain of the paper against my fingers.
“Lemonade” Screening (April 22) at McCormick 101. As part of the University Center for Human Values’ Film Forum series Trans Citizen, there will be a screening of the movie “Lemonade” this Monday evening. Directed by Ioana Uricaru, “Lemonade” tells the story of a Romanian woman who moves to the United States after marrying an American man she recently met.
diSiac Dance Company opened its spring show with dancers moving in semi-darkness to the understated beat of Jaden Smith’s “Ghost.” The production played off of the strength of simplicity, beginning with marketing that got straight to the point about how good the group really is: “drip” was this season’s theme. No other narrative or overarching topic was needed to bind together the whole production as it sped by.
I’m obsessed with spicy foods. I’ve conquered the Blazin’ Wings challenge multiple times, have devoured a raw ghost pepper, love to brag about my vast collection of hot sauces, and am an avid fan of Hot Ones, a YouTube talk show that forces celebrities to eat progressively hotter wings while answering your typical talk show questions. Whereas most bucket lists include skydiving or getaways to exotic locations, my dream is to travel to New York City’s East Village, home of the infamous “Spiciest Curry in The World” challenge.
Nostalgia (April 15–26) at Hagan Studio. The senior visual arts thesis entitled Nostalgia by Susan Liu ’19 will be on display at Hagan Studio from April 15–26. The show focuses on “nostalgia” through a historical lens. Liu uses “multiple sensory modalities” to explore this topic of nostalgia.
Hollywood blockbuster “Green Book” immediately sparked controversy following its Best Picture win at the 2019 Academy Awards. The film tracks a budding friendship between black musician Don Shirley, played by Mahershala Ali, and white Italian American driver Tony Lip, played by Viggo Mortensen. And though it is a heart-warming story good enough to win the Oscar, Don Shirley’s real-life family has levied accusations against the makers of the film, claiming that they were never consulted and that the relationship portrayed between Shirley and Lip is fictional.
If there’s something that Princeton seems to be overridden with (not including ice cream shops), it’s ramen. In the past few years, ramen shops have been sprouting up like weeds (not in a bad way — more like pretty weeds with flowers on them), making it hard to decide where to go. Group options and budget prices are always a plus while at school, so here are three options that will meet those needs and beyond!
While the weather outside may finally be changing for the better, there are still many exciting things going on in Princeton indoors. Below we’ve picked out some of the best ones you should attend.
Juggling, belly dancing, stepping, saxophone playing, and puppetry all came together at the Berlind Theatre this past weekend in a lively production of “The Odyssey” — a musical adaptation of Homer’s famous epic poem. The production, Victoria Davidjohn ’19 and Annabel Barry’s ’19 theater thesis, completed a four-show run with sold-out performances and over 40 Princeton students sharing the stage.
I’ve heard a lot about “manscaping.” What is this, and should I be doing it?
A young woman slow dances with a phantom in a haunted hotel. Two shy ghosts try futilely to scare away the living intruders in their home. A sinister love potion sends a honeymoon into disarray. Más Flow’s ¡Qué Horror! took its theme in every conceivable direction, attempting to balance steaminess, humor, and pain along the way.
