Armory Soirée | THANK YOU
Dear Modernist Salon Students and Friends,
I am writing to congratulate you on a fabulous Armory Soirée last night. You did a terrific job in organizing a unified and professional exhibition. In doing so, you translated the salon theory studied in class into distinct installations (performance, culinary, fashion, video art, social media, mixed media, archival), showcasing a really interesting diversity of methodologies, while also ensuring the exhibition's overall unified gestalt. This is no easy task, and you did us proud. Also, the energy was high, and your guests — there were about 60 -- were engaged throughout. I also hope that this event creates some lively memories of your graduate studies.
I will be in touch separately within the next two weeks, with more formal feedback, but wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for your excellent engagement.
I would also like to thank our volunteers for the evening, who did a superb job in helping us out: Laura Berger, Kat Granovsky, and Jennifer Pagliaro. I would also like to thank Catherine Russell for excellent help with set up, and Cat Waszczuk for terrific installation support leading up to the exhibition.
Thank you to all your guests, and a special thank you to Paul Moore, Communication and Culture Graduate Director; Janet Lum, Associate Dean Research and Graduate Studies; and Jean Paul Boudreau, Dean of Arts, for making the time to come out and support our graduate students. Thank you to both Paul Moore and Sophie Thomas, Director of Literatures of Modernity, for helping facilitate this course, which had a unique mixture of Communication and Culture and Literatures of Modernity students.
Please don't forget to continue the conversation via the group's twitter account: @Ryerson1913.
Warm wishes to all,
