Dennis Ng / The Dartmouth Staff Tomorrow night, 25 of Dartmouth's most talented singers will gather in Spaulding Auditorium to face off in the semifinals of "Dartmouth Idol," a competition modeled after the popular TV show "American Idol." Six of these semifinalists will move on to compete in the finals, which are scheduled to take place in March. The semifinalists were chosen from a pool of 60 who auditioned, according to College Gospel Choir director Walt Cunningham, who is responsible for creating, producing and directing the show. Students were asked to perform a song of their choosing in front of a panel consisting of Cunningham, Hopkins Center student performance programs director Joshua Kol '93 and Kaitlyn Sheehan '09, a finalist in the 2009 "Dartmouth Idol" competition. The audition process also included an interview component that allowed the panelists to learn about the students' motivations for participating in the show. This year marks the largest number of students to advance to the semifinal round of "Dartmouth Idol" in recent history, Cunningham said.

"It's very exciting for us; we love to see what the students choose," Kahl said.
Featuring a perhaps unexpected combination of sustainability, poverty and art, the student art show "Art + Activism" will open this Thursday in the student gallery of the Black Family Visual Arts Center. The show, which will run until the end of the term, is the result of collaborative efforts between the Office of Sustainability, the "A Monstrous Octopus: The Tentacles of Poverty" symposium team and "This Is Not a Group," a student organization responsible for running, curating and installing exhibits in the gallery. The theme "Art + Activism" originated when the Sustainability in the Arts interns and representatives from the "A Monstrous Octopus" symposium approached student gallery co-managers Luca Molnar '13 and Sabrina Yegela '13 about combining the arts with their respective focus areas. Both student groups were especially eager to incorporate their ideas with the arts to align with the Hopkins Center's Year of the Arts initiative, Sustainability in the Arts intern Anna Morenz '13 said. "We really felt that the arts can be a form of activism in terms of providing powerful visual images that get people thinking about social issues or raise consciousness about issues in a different way than say, a lecture or some of the other opportunities on campus," Morenz said.
