This portrait by William Halsey has been hanging in the Simons Center for years, but who is it of? Can you guess? Answer to come later this summer… We’re hoping to have a label put up so everyone knows this piece of CofC history!

Arts Management students in the “Media and the Arts at Spoleto” Maymester class have been hard at work this week converting Simons room 101 into a production office and recording studio for ETV Radio’s Spoleto Today show!
This semester, we will assist professor Jeanette Guinn in every aspect of producing and creating Spoleto Today– creating a workspace, scheduling interviews, marketing the show through social media, handling technical aspects of the recording process, and much more.
First, we had to deal with the aftermath of the end-of-semester table setup… We cleared all the tables and chairs and stacked them in a corner. We set up workspaces for everyone on the team.
Next, we brought in soundproofing foam and recording equipment and set up our recording booth for radio interviews.
We noticed that the notorious squeaky door leading out of Simons that is right next to room 101 was really affecting our recording process… so we put some WD40 on it and it doesn’t squeak any more, 3 squeaking years later. You’re welcome!!
Then we put up a big banner! (Thanks to the Theater Department, particularly Robert Ashley in the Scene Shop, for lending us rugs and ladders)
We’re ready to start recording the show on Monday- come visit us in Simons room 101 to see what we’re up to!
Thanks to Kathryn Norton and Donna Dupree for helping us in the setup process.
