Fiks Lectures on Art as it Intersects With History
For the past decade MCCC Professor of Art Yevgeniy Fiks has focused on studying the history of his home country of Russia and how the U.S. has reacted both before and after the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991. He has created works of art that reflect key moments in history between the two countries. “It’s not about me as an artist; it’s about being a historian,” he said. Fiks explained his work at a lecture at MCCC on April 5. Full story here with images.

Language Students Tour Spanish NYC
On March 31, student members of the MCCC chapter of Alpha Mu Gamma World Languages Honor Society in association with the Spanish Club, traveled to New York to experience art and culture with a definite Spanish flavor. Students took in a Spanish-language play at the award-winning theater, Repertorio Español and saw “Crónica de una muerte anunciada" based on the novela by renowned Colombian author, Gabriel García Márquez. Before the play, they stopped at a neighborhood restaurant called El Quijote for la comida (the name for the bigger-than-lunch meal typical in Spain). The paella, a yellow rice dish loaded with seafood, was the biggest hit. The event was sponsored by the Spanish Club, the Alpha Mu Gamma Honor Society and the MCCC Student Activities Dept. Students gave special thanks to faculty member Patricia Fonseca who escorted them for the day, and to their club advisor, faculty member Daniel D’Arpa, who students say guided their plans to fruition. It was considered a great success by all. [Submitted by Nancy Baskin.]
