All Day Diwali
Hindu, Jain, Sikh, & Buddhist holyday: Diwali (the Festival of Lights) is the biggest festival in India. An ancient harvest festival, Diwali is a 4-day celebration for Hindus of the triumph of good over evil, grounded in tales of the Gods & Goddesses, including Rama, Kali, Ganesha, Krishna, Lakshmi, Parvati, and Shiva, associated with wealth, prosperity, and goodness, and celebrated by lighting lamps and exchanging gifts.[i] Some Buddhists celebrate this as the day Emperor Ashoka converted from Hinduism to Buddhism in 262 BCE.[ii] For Jains, it marks Lord Mahavir’s attainment of Nirvana in 527 BCE and the beginning of the New Year.[iii] Sikhs remember Diwali as Bandi Chhor Diwas (Day of Liberation) when the 6th Guru and 52 princes were freed from prison by the Muslim Mughal emperor in 1619.[iv] Diwali is a significant occasion for South Asians from many religious traditions.

8:00 AM LAW-Spring 2016 Course Registration
Spring 2016 Course Registration Begins Today For 3rd Year Evening Students at 8 a.m.
8:30 AM - 8:30 PM Drawing=Thinking
Conceived in tandem with Cannot Be Described in Words: Drawing/Daring, at The Art Complex Museum, Duxbury, MA, the ‘exhibit’ will activate the gallery by transforming it into an interactive maker space for drawing and thinking. The programming is conceived as a response to The Art Complex Museum exhibit whose participants (four of whom are New England School of Art and Design faculty) share a sense of daring: exploring new approaches, scale and mediums that expand the definition of drawing and add to what that definition can be. 

Drawing = Thinking enhances the gallery as a site actuated by the correspondence of drawing to thinking and vice versa. Workshops and demos will give students and the general public and students the chance to experience the many ways that drawing and thinking overlap.  The results from these will contribute to a growing exhibit in the space of the gallery from November through January. 

All workshops will be during student activity period –on Tuesday or Thursday, from 1 – 2:30p.m. 
Pizza will be provided 
Check the gallery website for schedule of activities:

The Operation Care for Troops effort also will include the collection of donations for the New England Center for Homeless Veterans on Court Street.
