Cotter Union / 111 Silberman Lounge

Nickolus Meisel, Associate Professor of Fine Art and Sculpture Area Coordinator at Washington State University, will be in residence at Colby College for five days in early April. Cotter Union’s LoPo space will serve as Meisel’s campus studio where he will gradually create a new sculpture/sound installation that will explore experiential intersections between seeing and hearing his work. Meisel’s LoPo studio will be an open space in which the Colby community may visit the artist at work and see his vision take form. He will be joined throughout his residency by Associate Professor Steven Nuss and a group of student music theorists who will assist Meisel in the installation of his work, and two student composers, Kennedy Center award winner Luke Martin (’14) and Presidential Scholar Noah Teachey (’13) who will respond to Meisel’s work in the form of original compositions. Meisel’s residency will conclude in LoPo on Friday, April 12th at 3:30 when he will be joined by Nuss and the student musicians for an informal panel discussion of the week’s collaborative experience and a hearing of two student compositions that respond to various aspects of Meisel’s work and aesthetic. Meisel’s residency is made possible by generous support from the Colby Center for Arts and Humanities, the Goldfarb Center, and the Colby Cultural Events Committee.
