Tom Scott Untitled, 1950s, oil on canvas, 69" x 69"

Tom Scott, Retrospective

Visual Arts
Thursday, October 9 – Saturday, December 13
Center for Art, Design and Visual Culture

Tom Scott’s career as an artist spanned more than 60 years, from the early 1950s through the first decade of this century. His output is remarkable not only for its temporal span but for its quantity and qualities, amounting to over 3,000 by his death at age 85 in March 2013. It is also remarkable for the particular span of time it covers: a unique time that saw the ascendancy of American art on the world stage for the first time and an extraordinarily fertile period of general artistic invention worldwide that included the creation and maturing of important sub-movements of modernism, and simultaneously the beginning of post modern tendencies in art. Opening reception on Thursday, October 9. (Click heading for full description.)

Trio des Alpes by Studio Neon, Milano

Trio des Alpes

Saturday, November 15 | 8:00 p.m.
Trio des Alpes
Concert Hall (Performing Arts & Humanities Building)

“Individually excellent, they are even more impressive together,” wrote the Gazzetta di Mantova after a concert by the Italian-Swiss Trio des Alpes, thereby describing one of this Trio’s essential qualities: three independent, all-round successful personalities meeting as a trio. What attracts them is the quintessence of chamber music: dialogue, a shared sound and the blending of three instruments into a single whole. The Trio’s program will feature works by women composers, including the U.S. premiere of a new piece by UMBC professor Linda Dusman. (Click heading for full description.)
