Touring uvm: arts & humanities
Virtual Tours by Students
The following is an computer-generated summary of the video transcript.
I'm a senior in the College of Arts and Sciences, studying chemistry with a minor in history. So I've really, throughout my time at UVM been combining the arts and sciences, which has been so fun outside of the classroom, I'm involved as a tour guide here on campus. So the Fleming Museum is the largest fine arts museum in Vermont on, and it has a collection, 40,000 items strong. It's so beautiful in here, and it's also free for all students. You can come in just to study if you're not taking classes here and it's just like this really cool space, that super enriching for all students you just get into this'll is my exhibit that I carry it with a group of students in our history. We're skyping with different guy working museums, talking about the relationship that people have as using goers with the art and who's welcome in different species here. So this exhibit really examines that and also brings in our artists who aren't typically shown in museums on That's what's really cool. This'll he's right here, eyes actually done by being a professor who works in Studio Art department. Beltre created this on it talks about the relationship between race and art on It's really cool that we have a local artist was able to do this, so this is like the Egyptian exhibit that talks about like Egyptian art. Uh, but the other thing with that is talking about how a lot of these different things the prominence of those pieces of work is really really she. So how we came to get these piece of pieces of art and how they wound up in our collection is another really interesting thing. I'm actually a chemistry major here at U V n on DSO. As I've been taking courses in the humanities, in the arts over time, I've skipped out on a lot of like, intro classes. Soto have things like the Fleming Museum and other different art pieces here on campus has given me greater context to what it is that I've been studying on it like it's this great little supplemental research. There's a university players as well as name pending an improv group here. There's also opportunities to get involved in tech here. You could be any major to get involved in those things as well. So if you're a music education major, for example, you're able to get involved in blocking shows in creating sound design for shows on it. It's just a really cool opportunity, no matter what background you're coming from. Er, in Cohen Hall, which is a new building to our campus, it was made possible by $7 million donation from the Cohen family directly to the arts. It's just provided all sorts of really cool new equipment for students to be able to utilize. Williams Hall is home to give this to your department, the Art History Department as well as the anthropology department. It's a huge cornerstone for the College of Arts and Sciences, something that is really important to me as a chemistry major Cares about the arts is adding context to my degree. When I first came in T b m, I didn't really understand why my agreement on overtime I've gotten contacts I can apply can extreme toe all sorts of different things, all sorts of different applications be that food, science or doing conservation in a museum or something like that. It's really out of value to what it is that I'm studying. So this has been something that it's really enriched my own education, and it made me a better chemist but also a better person. When I'm not in class here in Southwick, I'm involved with Snowbird Club, the National Association for Music Educators being a tractor. I didn't call music director of All Female, I don't I. And on Ryanair, a cappella group I'm also involved with in the music department with our concert car, and I have been previously involved with cattle. It's so not all of them are excited with music department, but we do have a lot of those We have Orchestra band, choir, chamber choir. There are so many jazz instrumental ensemble, so there are countless ways that you can get involved with something that is affiliated with the music department on all those opportunities are available in the music office. Talentless people who are involved in the music department have made their own dance. They opened for the artists that came for Spring Fest, which was so cool to get to see people that I have class with up there performing music in front of the entire school. So you want to be involved with music all you have to listen for it. It's a student, so you don't have to be a major user, which is really often end up getting a lot of states who just want to come and be able to play music. We have some upstairs and dancers as well, so there's plenty of space, and it's always really fun to walk down the hole and you people are playing. Sometimes jazz also sometimes just pop in something that they, you know, are really interested in. Everyone's different perspectives and what everyone's into really, really awesome. You We also have an archive library of tons and tons of music here. Majors like to hang out here between all my classes since most of our classes are house in south. So we got to come in form and then for them into a workshop was really great professionals who work out in the field and have been in our shoes and are now performing. So through my music lessons that I have with David, No. I mean, I get to prepare whatever music that I want, and I performed that and show everyone what I've been working on.
