Announcement of Commencement 2019 National Anthem Singer!

Date: Wednesday, March 27, 2019
Subject: Announcement of Commencement 2019 National Anthem Singer!

Greetings!  It is with great pleasure that I announce that this year's National Anthem singer at Commencement will be 2019 Illustration degree candidate Jamiel Law.

Jamiel was born and raised in Sarasota, Florida. He attended high school at Lighthouse Preparatory Christian School in Bradenton, Florida. Throughout his childhood, he developed an interest in the visual and performing arts. Nearing the end of high school, he heard about the Ringling College of Art and Design PreCollege program where he received one of the Student Life Leadership Initiative Awards. Upon completing the  program, his attention became focused on attending Ringling College after senior year.  While at Ringling College, Jamiel was involved on campus in and out of the classroom. He participated as a Student Ambassador, Orientation Leader, and as a member of the Student Advisory Council for the Center for Career Services. All of these involved working with faculty, peers and the Sarasota community. Some of his work was exhibited in the Best of Ringling show. Recently, one of his pieces was accepted into 2019 Society of Illustrators Student Scholarship Competition which will be exhibited in New York this spring. Currently, he is creating a body of work which consists of editorial illustrations containing cultural and societal relevance. These are ideas that resonate with him and that can connect with his audience.   Jamiel plans on moving to New York to pursue freelancing in the editorial and book illustration industries. In this way, he will be able to use his talents to tell stories in unique and meaningful ways in order to connect emotionally with people.

Date: Monday, March 25, 2019
Subject: Announcement of 2019 Student Commencement Speaker!

It is with great pleasure that I announce that this year's Student Commencement Speaker will be Meybis Chavarria, 2019 Visual Studies degree candidate.

Meybis was born in Boquete, Panama.  In 2013, she attended UWC Pearson in British Columbia in Canada, receiving the international baccalaureate upon completion.  While at Pearson, Meybis was exposed to a diversity of cultures, as well as discovering her passion for art, which led her to Ringling College of Art and Design.

As a Ringling College student, Meybis has been involved in an array of programs to include:  Art Network (President), Student Government Association, Student Ambassador, and the YEA Program, sharing art with students in the local community.  Her commitment to creating a world where art can help to overcome difficulties and challenges led to directing her first documentary film during Junior year.  My Words Are Louder Than Sirens, a documentary depicting 4th and 5th graders from Visible Men Academy using spoken word.  The documentary received the Best of Ringling Gold Jurors Award recognition in 2018.  Also, in 2018, Meybis was awarded a scholarship as an Avant Garde Service finalist for her volunteer work.

Meybis has continued to use the power of storytelling to co-direct another documentary, On The Wings Of Performance.  This film depicted the relationship between mentors and mentees, and how life impacting this can be.  The documentary was featured on ABC7.  Currently, Meybis is working on completing her Senior Thesis, The Art of Healing, a documentary depicting the impact of Art on people - mentally, physically and spiritually.

 After graduation Meybis is planning to pursue her master's in Art Therapy, as well as continue to use film to raise awareness about important social issues in the world, helping people through art.

Please join with me in congratulating Meybis Chavarria!

Process-ing History: The Photobook and the Archive
On view March 20-May 31, 2019

Brizdle-Schoenberg Special Collections Center
2nd floor, Alfred R. Goldstein Library

The visual and textual documents, files, and objects that make up an archive are traces of collected memory. They are the fragments which are used to write and construct history. We amass personal archives, community archives, institutional archives, governmental archives, and so on as ways of remembering. To stave off forgetting.

Photography as a recording device at once seems sufficiently suited to capture its subjects and serve as reliable evidence, while in the same click offers a limited view???distorting subjects and obscuring details. The photograph, like other forms of documentation, is partial and its partiality has the ability to shape subsequent readings of historical events.

The artists in this exhibition occupy unique ground. They utilize the photograph and the form of the photobook to encroach on possibilities of the archive and the power of the archivist. Their projects offer new interpretations of the archive, interventions into archival documentation, and enactments of counter archives and anarchives. In many instances the artists use pre-existing photographs or found negatives, but in a few instances incorporate their own original photographs.

Image: Christian Boltanski, Le club Mickey (Ghent, Belgium: Imschoot, 1990).

The Center also releases its sixth title in the Exhibition Takeaways series: Step & Repeat: Pattern in Artists??? Publications. Available as a blue Riso-printed booklet and a digital download.
