LC Authors Out Loud

On Tuesday, January 10th, we were delighted to celebrate the literary arts at Loomis Chaffee through our second annual LC Authors Out Loud event. Sponsored by the Katharine Brush Library and the Loomis Chaffee Arts department, this event enabled students, faculty and staff to share with an audience their original work, which spans a wide range of literary genres.

Having the reading at the Richmond Arts Center on the same night as the community art show and visiting artist show openings gave attendees the unique opportunity to experience a vibrant spoken word event alongside beautiful visual art displayed at the gallery. The event also featured acoustic live music performed by a quartet of faculty musicians. 

 We look forward to putting on more of these events in years to come!

Emerging Writers

The staff at the Katharine Brush Library congratulate the students who participated in the first annual Emerging Writers event on September 20th at the Richmond Arts Center. Emerging Writers celebrates the literary arts on campus by displaying diverse works drawn from independent summer-writing portfolios produced by Loomis Chaffee students. The student pieces on display include works of poetry and prose.

The opening took place alongside Emerging Artists and the opening of Cuba on the Brink: Arrested Development by Hank Paper at The Sue and Eugene Mercy Jr. Gallery.
