When my friend and I went to the Louvre we knew we had to plan accordingly. It’s the largest art museum in the world, with 38,000 pieces of art spread across over 700,000 square feet, not to mention that the Louvre Palace was established as a museum over 200 years ago. Before that it was a royal fortress then palace! Much to my friend’s dismay I was just as interested in the building as I was in the art objects, oops.
Neil Hilborn blended humor and honesty in his poetry last Saturday at the Murmrr Theatre.
I am a little afraid to be writing this right now. Will this change the way people view me? My reputation is already questionable. I am totally going to lose respect because of what I love…and that is bluegrass. I love bluegrass music.

A bastion of student-written theatre, FET hosts a Playwrights Festival each semester in order to showcase student written, one act plays.

A few weeks back, we at the paper were offered a unique opportunity to attend “A Case for Magic” at the NYC Frigid Fringe Festival.

What’s up with the goats, Jack? by Jack Archambault Opinions Editor Two weeks ago, I…
If you know me at all, you know that I love art. In fact, you may remember as the paper’s art editor last semester. However, with the way the editor positions work, I was forced to leave the position after the final issue last semester. In my retirement, I’ve found that I have more time than I know what to do with. This, combined with the fact I’m only taking three classes, meant that I finally had time to visit as various art institutions across the city.
f you’ve walked around New York City for longer than 15 minutes, you’ve seen one. If you’ve ever gotten a latte from a coffee shop in Brooklyn, you’ve interacted with one. If you’ve ever been happy to wear a shitty thrift store sweater, drink organic $6 coffee, and rage endlessly against the patriarchy, you are one. That’s right: a hipster.
Anyone who has visited the Metropolitan Museum of Art on Fifth Avenue can attest to its grand monumentality and to the impressiveness of the extensive collection which spans globally over thousands of years.
