After an arduous day of framing three of my drawings for my thesis show I was overwhelmed with a sense of accomplishment. The pieces look great framed and I feel the excitement building as Graduation nears closer and closer. I also found out that I, along with some faculty and fellow drawing majors, are going to be having lunch with our visiting artist, Ethan Murrow. Murrow’s drawings are currently showing in Kendall’s Gallery and I’ve been drooling over them for several years now-seeing them in person has been a real treat. Hence you must imagine my overwhelming joy when I was informed that I, along with a few fellow drawing majors and faculty, will be having lunch with him this Thursday at San Chez.
I’m also slightly panicked about this lunch. I fear I’m going to end up not speaking at all, embarrassed about being in the presence of an artist I so admire. There is a good chance I’ll be so intimidated I’ll have no idea what kind of questions to ask him- I would like to not do an impression of a very life like statue. I’ve started trying to come up with questions I could ask, but I’m having trouble. I supposed I could always go with ‘How much has your worked changed since your undergrad degree?”, but it seems a bit forced. I’m hoping someone can bring up a question to start a discussion- I do well with participating in discussions, much better than interviewing people. Fingers crossed that I don’t end up looking like an idiot. At the very least San Chez is supposed to have excellent food- hopefully I won’t be too nervous to eat.
