MFA adds color to a colorless night for students

jobba hemifrån 2017 By Susan Torres Over 1,500 students from the Boston area showed up at the Museum of Fine Arts Thursday night for a free College Night featuring free admission to an exhibition of Ansel Adams photography, a screening of the film “Coffee and Cigarettes” and a concert by the Mountain Goats. The theme, Black and White Through the Night, was meant to encompass Adams’ classic photography and the film’s equal lack of color.

enter “The goal of College Night was to create a fun event for students to be introduced to all that the museum has to offer, from our spectacular exhibitions to our film and concert programs,” event organizer Whitney Riepe said. “We planned the event in conjunction with the Ansel Adams exhibition, which we felt would appeal to students. Ansel Adams is a household name.” Along with the exhibit, students could also get free food in the coffee lounge, enter raffles for prizes, watch a late-night screening of the black and white film “Coffee and Cigarettes” and a select few got tickets to see the band The Mountain Goats. The Mountain Goats are one of six featured artists at the museum this fall as part of its Indie Rock Music series. While getting free Oreos and coffee in the lounge, students could hear the bass from the concert and feel the vibrations on the floor.

Even though students get into the museum for free, special exhibits usually cost extra, especially one as well known as Adams. “I thought it was pretty well done, the way they did it,” Saporiti said about the exhibit. “I liked how it was chronological and you could see technologically how he developed. It was pretty insightful.”

The organizers felt this movie would fit in nicely with the overall concept of the night. “We chose ‘Coffee and Cigarettes’ because it is a series of short black-and-white segments that students could enjoy while walking in and out of the theatre,” Riepe said. توصيات الاسهم السعودية جي Northeastern middler political science major Cate Johnson said she had plenty of reason to swing by the MFA for the event. “My friend told me about it and I also just love museums,” Johnson said. “My family also has some Ansel Adams prints at our house.”

James Partridge, a freshman political science major, had never seen Adams’ work before. “I thought the exhibit was very good,” Partridge said. “A lot of the subjects were very moving.

The Adams exhibit will remain at the MFA through the rest of the 2005 and is still free for Northeastern students apart from College Night at the museum’s Gund Gallery.
