Raku firing and arts crawl scheduled at BSC

Published: Apr 29 2015
Bismarck State College presents its signature ArtsQuest event with community raku starting Sunday, May 3, plus a Campus Arts Crawl on Tuesday, May 5.

Hundreds of clay ceramics and sculpture created by BSC students, faculty and community members will be fired west of the BSC Library over three days. Hours are 1-5 p.m. Sunday, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday, and 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Tuesday.

Viewers will enjoy the dramatic surface effects of the raku method, which involves heavy reduction and quick cooling.

The fourth annual Campus Arts Crawl (View Map) offers the public a variety of arts-related activities from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. May 5 on the west campus. Werner Hall 105 is headquarters for the student art sale and the Chemistry in Art class display. An enameling activity takes place in Werner 110 from 1 to 3 p.m., with tie-dye scheduled outside between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m., weather permitting.

Students read from "Figments of Imagination" literary journal starting at noon in the library's outdoor courtyard. A free lunch begins at 11:30 a.m. and goes until supplies last.
