Even before setting foot in Afghanistan last summer, Rianna Starheim ’14 knew she was going to have an experience worth capturing on film. After a summer teaching 30 high school girls English, guitar and yoga, Starheim worked with the Dickey Center for International Understanding to put together her first photography exhibition, which provided a snapshot of her summer experience and shared what she learned about the Afghan culture. The 25-photo collection is currently on display in the Haldeman Center’s Russo Gallery and was featured as a highlight of the sixth annual Student Forum on Global Learning for Martin Luther King, Jr. day.

By the age of 15, Freeman was already making the transition from singing for fun to performing for an audience to being an artist. She started her own YouTube channel as an avenue to share her music. She also began to focus more effort on her original work, by cataloguing and recording her compositions.
It is fitting that College artist-in-residence Heather McGill, who pairs the latest technology with meticulous manual work to create art, is from Detroit, a city she describes as the home of industrial and commercial activity. McGill will be showing her work in the exhibition “Small Things, Pretty Things” in the Hopkins Center’s Jaffe-Friede Gallery through Mar. 10.
Did you DIY that rug? Is that an upcycled quilt? Are those refashioned leg warmers you’re wearing? Did you get that idea from Pinterest? Did you buy those coasters off Etsy?
A man made of steel precariously leaning forward, arms thrust behind him. A book made of tissue paper held together by thin, red thread. An interactive machine that manipulates light. All of these pieces and more are featured in the second Alumni in the Arts Biennial Exhibition, which opened this weekend at the Top of the Hopkins Center.
Alessandro Ceglia ’94 has dreamt of working in animation began during his time at the College and eventually translated this dream into his current career as a rough layout artist at DreamWorks Animation Studios. Ceglia, who has also previously worked as an animator for television commercials and music videos, has worked as an artist for recent DreamWorks films, such as “Madagascar 3” (2012), “Turbo” (2013) and “How to Train Your Dragon 2” (2014). Ceglia is currently working on “Kung Fu Panda 3,” which will be released in early 2016.
If you got Sherlock Holmes off of opium and onto grass, threw him into the 1970s and ramped up his libido, you would approximately end up with Larry “Doc” Sportello, the bumbling, high-as-a-kite detective and protagonist in Paul Thomas Anderson’s latest film, “Inherent Vice” (2014). The idea of a Thomas Pynchon novel being adapted into a Paul Thomas Anderson film might sound like a recipe for an abstruse mess — Pynchon’s novels have often been deemed “unfilmable” — but somehow they gel, finding a middle ground where incomprehension is made up for by zeitgeist and farce.
From ancient sculptures to jazz classics to a world-famous love story, Dartmouth students will have a wide range of arts events to choose from this winter.
Joining the Dartmouth Symphony Orchestra seemed like a no-brainer for concertmaster Tom Cheng ’15. He discovered an affinity for the violin after his mom registered him for lessons at the age of six. Originally, his motivation to keep playing were the trinkets he received from his instructor, but Cheng grew to love the instrument, performing in an ensemble and making music with his classmates of his own accord.
Fast and slow. Sharp and flowing. Codified and improvised. The art of Kuchipudi, an Indian classical dance, is all about balancing contrasts in order to tell a story through movement. Students at the College will have the opportunity to experience Kuchipudi when professional dancer and choreographer Shantala Shivalingappa performs “Akasha” at the Hopkins Center of Art Wednesday and Thursday at 7 p.m.
“Movies that are female-driven do not travel,” Krista Smith, West Coast editor of “Vanity Fair,” said. When I read this quote I became frustrated with Smith’s defeatist attitude in regards to women in the film industry. My frustration brought on Google search after Google search questioning the current presence of females in movies.
A collection of 39 photographs will be accessible to students at the Hood Museum of Art following a December donation of contemporary photography from Thomas O’Neil ’79 and his wife, Nancy O’Neil. The donation includes pieces by 17 photographers that focus on political and social issues.
From visiting the world’s largest pecan in Seguin, Texas to singing at Google to driving for nine hours with 17 other singers, Dartmouth College a cappella groups took advantage of the six-week winter interim period to travel the country and introduce people to a cappella.
When he is not blogging about epic fantasy or spending time outside in Vermont, author and blogger Brian Staveley ’98 works on his trilogy “Chronicle of the Unhewn Throne.” The second book in the series, “The Providence of Fire” comes out Jan. 13.
There’s an unfortunate irony in Morten Tyldum’s choosing “The Imitation Game” (2014) as the title for his most recent movie, since he has recycled aspects of “The King’s Speech” (2010) in pursuit of claiming some of those shiny golden statues. Then again, Tom Hooper’s masterpiece is not the worst movie to emulate. Just replace the stuttering King George VI with the stuttering mathematician Alan Turing and use the same composer (Alexandre Desplat) and you should have Best Picture. Despite Benedict Cumberbatch’s performance, “The Imitation Game” is not on par with theng former Oscar-winner, and I hope the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has the sense not to bite again.
Phil Klay ’05 received the National Book Award for fiction this week for his first short story collection, “Redeployment.” The work was inspired by his experiences serving in the U.S. Marine Corps as a Public Affairs Officer, including his January 2007 to February 2008 deployment in Iraq’s Anbar province.
The Handel Society will perform a moving concert on Tuesday that will convey drama and inner despair.
