Thanks again to everyone who made LAF a huge success this year. It was such a wonderful evening.
And thanks to our amazing photographer, Michael Edwards. Here are just a few of the pictures he took.
We can’t wait to see all of you there! For volunteers and performers: please come to the rehearsal from 1:30-4pm in Voorhees Theater tomorrow.
Brooklyn native, William J. Luperena, is a student, designer, illustrator, writer, and teacher with the aim to influence his communities by constantly learning and sharing his acquired knowledge. He is currently enrolled in New York City College of Technology’s Bachelor’s Degree program for communication design with a focus in advertising. He is also interning as a graphic designer for Faculty Commons and Visual Conductor. His work is influenced by fashion, hip hop, and urban culture. As a designer, William considers himself a translator, as it his duty to communicate ideas to an audience. (Click on the images below to see the full graphic!)
Join us this Thursday (4/6) at 1pm in N1107 for our final team meeting before break. If you haven’t attended a meeting yet, that’s ok. If you already got a shirt, please bring it. Also, we’re going to have pizza, so comment on this post if you’ll be there so we know how much to get!
The festival is fast approaching, April 27, at 5:30 p.m., and we are so excited about this year’s poster designed by City Tech student William Luperena!
In a discussion with poet Lawrence Joseph about his work on his debut book of poetry, The Ground, (FSG, 2012) Phillips discusses his work as a translator and a literary critic and how these affect his creative lens. He also discusses the importance of myth, story, and disturbances of the natural world in his work, stating: “There’s something monumental and terrifying about myth when it’s allowed to become again something more than a euphemism for fiction––as in “that’s just a myth”––and it creeps with conviction into your belief system.”
The Ground will be available in the City Tech bookstore.
