Kenney and the Art of Motorcycle
those loathe to ask cerebral questions like What is art?
What role does creation play in the classification of art?
and What can art convey about desire and experience that words
cannot? Mike Kenneys installation in Fisher Gallery
may not be their cup of tea. Kenneys one-man show, on display
until Nov. 9, is a highly conceptual and symbolic work that raises
questions regarding the role of the artist as creator in addition
to exploring themes of power, escape and freedom. It manages to
do all of this without sacrificing clarity and beauty. For those
visiting the installation who enjoy exploring the conceptual side
of art and are willing to put time into understanding the points
Kenney makes through his medium and subject matter, it is a worthwhile
and interesting endeavor. For everyone else, well, theyll
get to see a really nice motorcycle.
Pummel Kenyon in First Home Win
Oct. 20, while many Oberlin students were packing up and leaving campus,
the football team was getting psyched up for what would be its first win
in over three years. In the teams most cohesive game of the season,
the Yeomen dominated the Kenyon Lords, cruising to a 53-22 victory and
laying to rest an NCAA-high 44 game losing streak.
Hit the Road, Ye Evangelists
To the Editors:
This is an
open letter to Oberlins Saturday morning street preachers. These
days there are people who, in their confusion and fear, distort the scriptures
and end by inspiring hostility and distrust, sometimes even death and
destruction. That is what the Sept. 11 killers have done. That is what
you are in danger of doing with your messages of exclusion and doom.
