I’ve broken the cardinal rule of blogging—blog at least once every other day.
For the faithful few who might be checking daily for updates (hi Mom), I’m sorry.
But just because I’ve been lazy doesn’t mean things have slowed down at Stephens, even during spring break last week.
A week ago, our Historic Costume Gallery got a spring update. You might remember, this year’s exhibit follows fashions in one woman’s wardrobe as it evolved from 1947 to 1990.
Last week, our muse swapped out her winter items to make room for springtime garments. And the clothing is beautiful—there was one sweater dress I absolutely loved (and would have to lose 75 pounds to wear—our muse was a tiny little thing).
You can read more about it here in the Missourian’s From Readers section (you’ll recall, I’m becoming a regular contributor). The From Readers stories aren’t behind a pay wall so when you’re done reading that one, check out additional From Stephens stories about Stephens here and here and here.
Also making local news this week is tonight’s Writers on the Edge event featuring Missouri’s first Poet Laureate, Walter Bargen, and Michael Sleadd, an art professor & chair at Columbia College. My former colleague Aarik Danielson penned this great piece about the creative partnership between the two that has spanned a decade (if you don’t have a Tribune online subscription, it’ll cost you a free click, but it’s so worth it).
So that’s what’s been going on in a nutshell.
We have some new things to tell you about this week, so check the Stephens homepage often … as well as this blog: I promise, I’ll do a better job of keeping it updated.
