Perfect Pantry (it all starts with a seed) is a group exhibition consisting of collages, journals, interactive work, and spoken word by those who face food insecurity in metro Atlanta.

The exhibition Perfect Pantry (it all starts with a seed) is an emotional and interactive look into the lives of those experiencing food insecurity in metro Atlanta. In partnership with the Department of Agricultural Leadership, Education & Communication at the University of Georgia in Athens, the Atlanta Community Food bank and select metro Atlanta food pantries, this project uses small art pieces created by food pantry clients as the the platform for food insecure individuals to share their experiences and critiques of food assistance, in the hopes of bringing change to make Atlanta food assistance models more effective.

Organized by Hillary Jourdan with support from the Atlanta Community Food Bank, selected metro Atlanta food pantries, the Department of Agricultural Leadership, Education & Communication, and Ideas for Creative Exploration, an interdisciplinary initiative for advanced research in the arts.

Reading Room: The Integration of the Humanities and Arts with Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine in Higher Education

The Integration of the Humanities and Arts with Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine in Higher Education

The Integration of the Humanities and Arts with Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine in Higher Education examines the evidence behind the assertion that educational programs that mutually integrate learning experiences in the humanities and arts with science, technology, engineering, mathematics, and medicine (STEMM) lead to improved educational and career outcomes for undergraduate and graduate students. It explores evidence regarding the value of integrating more STEMM curricula and labs into the academic programs of students majoring in the humanities and arts and evidence regarding the value of integrating curricula and experiences in the arts and humanities into college and university STEMM education programs.

ICE Conversation: Inlets Foundation for Experimental Practices
Wednesday, March 28 at Noon
Lamar Dodd Building Room S160

Inlets Foundation for Experimental Practices presents on their artistic practices, aesthetic philosophy, and concert programming. A Miami-based organization, Inlets organizes concert series that explore radical forms of sonic expression and unconventional performance contexts.

They perform their own works and that of other experimental artists from around the world. Their repertoire redefines the concert format, the role of the artist, and the relationship between artist, performer, and audience member. Many of their pieces are performed outdoors or in casual environments from inside retail stores to inside cars. Their art often has the effect of highlighting the profundity and complexity behind even the simplest performative actions and relationships.
