Friday offers art, literature

Students will be able to indulge in both art and literature to kick off their weekends.

At 4 p.m. on Friday, Caxton Club will present a reading by Alan Grostephan, currently a visiting professor. He was born and raised in Minnesota before moving to Colombia, where he taught writing and theatre. Most recently, he authored “Bogotá,” a novel that the Wall Street Journal chose as one of the best works of fiction of 2013. The reading will take place in the Alumni Room.

Later, at 5 p.m., The Box will open to preview an exhibit of works created by senior art majors. These works are created as a part of Open Studio, a departmental capstone course in which each student enrolls for three credits of one term to work on their art. The Box is located near the corner of S. Kellogg St. and W. Simmons St.
