Artists Arakawa and Herzfeld at MCCC Gallery
The Gallery at MCCC will open its 2011-12 season with "Motus Anima: Works by Peter Arakawa and Rita Herzfeld" Tuesday, Sept. 13 to Thursday, Oct. 20. The public is invited to a reception with the artists on Wednesday, Sept. 21, 5 - 7:30 p.m., and a Gallery Talk with the artists Monday, Oct. 3, starting at 7 p.m. The MCCC Gallery is located on the second floor of the Communication Building.

The performances feature the finely-honed vocal ensemble, a professional orchestra, and world-renowned soloists. The repertoire includes 133 cantatas, all of the motets, and 15 of Bach's larger works. Learn more here.

Mel Leipzig Examines "Use of Black and White in Painting" Sept. 27
Renowned artist and MCCC Professor Mel Leipzig will present an illustrated lecture, "The Use of Black and White in Painting," highlighting works from the Renaissance to Contemporary Art, on Tuesday, Sept. 27 at 12 noon. The slide presentation takes place in CM 110. Leipzig will feature one of his own paintings, along with those of notable artists including Piero della Francesca, Paolo Uccello, Pieter Brueghel, Edouard Manet, Henri Matisse, Pablo Picasso, Franz Kline, Edouard Vuillard and Fairfield Porter. "As colors, black and white are very important elements in painting," Leipzig said. "I want to demonstrate how both are used to create a focal point, clarity of illusionistic space, unification of design, a sense of light and a greater intensity of color." More here.

WWFM To Go Live with HD in New York and Philadelphia
You haven't heard how great classical music can sound on the radio until you've heard HD radio, according to WWFM General Manager Peter Fretwell. That fact has spurred WWFM The Classical Network to extend its reach. Starting soon, New Yorkers who own an HD radio -- a radio which receives digital audio embedded in regular analog FM broadcasts -- will be able to listen to The Classical Network on 89.9 HD2. WWFM is partnering with WKCR-FM, the legendary student station at Columbia University, in the new venture. In Philadelphia, there will be one fully digital, full genre classical station, WWFM The Classical Network, on 89.5 HD2.
With music education as the heart of its mission, WWFM is dedicated to presenting the full breadth and depth of classical music. More here.

Kelsey Theatre Awards its Own for Excellence
There are the Perry Awards, presented annually in September by the New Jersey Association of Community Theaters, and then there are the Kelsey Awards. On Saturday, Aug. 13, the active – and vocal – theater community at MCCC joined together for the Kelsey Theatre Awards, following voting that was carried out online in July for shows that ran during the 2010-11 season. The event, with host Kyrus Westcott, an MCCC alumnus who has appeared in a variety of roles at Kelsey, proved a good time for all – and a chance to recognize the many talented actors and production crew members who volunteer to provide quality performances for the community all year long. The list of winners is available here.

Ad Design Students’ Logo Featured on Billboards
The Brain Injury Association of New Jersey is featuring a logo designed by MCCC’s Ad Design III students on five billboards around the community in September. The logo advertises “Walk for Thought,” a major fund-raising event for the organization, to be held Saturday, Oct. 1. Proceeds from the walk support vital BIANJ programs and services for individuals and families in New Jersey living with brain injury. As part of their capstone projects, student teams created numerous logo designs and promotional materials for the BIANJ, which were presented to a panel of judges in May. The winning team was comprised of Steven Benci, Michael Sadley and Melissa Siedelhofer. Their logo was praised for its clean, strong design. View the logo on BIANJ’s flyer here.
