Recent Graduates Featured in New York Times and Hartford Courant; Belanger’s Work Noted in New York Times
Ashley Allen, a 2010 graduate of the University’s College of Arts and Sciences, was featured in a New York Times article on Tuesday, Oct. 12, that highlighted the work being done by MLB Productions to put the plays from this year’s Major League Baseball playoffs into its new digitized archives. The article used Allen’s work as a video logger and tagger during Game 3 of the National League division series between the Giants and the Atlanta Braves to explain the new system. “With a click, Allen time-stamped each pitch. She typed in descriptions of each play. She noted camera angles (“WCF” for wide center field, for example), the cutaways (she typed in every word visible on signs held by fans) and the accompanying reactions. She clicked on all players directly involved with each play: the pitcher and batter, the fielders and base runners,” the story noted. To read the full story, click here
Kyle Andrew Phillips, a 2009 graduate of the Hartford Art School, was profiled in the Hartford Courant’s “ArtWeek” column on Thursday, Oct. 14, in conjunction with his upcoming exhibition of paintings at the Hartford Public Library. The exhibition, called ”The Admiration Series,” swings from abstract to American Impressionist, from portraits to landscape, and is all by one young artist, who also pours coffee at the Real Art Ways café and spent last year as the artist-in-residence at the Billings Forge complex, notes Courant art writer Roger Catlin.

The work of Marion Belanger, visiting assistant professor of photography at the Hartford Art School, was referenced in an opinion piece in The New York Times on Tuesday, Oct. 12, that examined how a growing number of photographers are using their craft to document the hidden side of the home foreclosure crisis. The commentator notes that, “To a great extent, Mr. Hido’s shots resemble Marion Belanger’s photographic series of property in limbo, what she calls the ‘in between stages’ of real estate after it’s been used, waiting to be recycled. But the more time you spend with these interiors, the more the human presence comes to the surface: in the divots left by table legs, in the stains of use along the edge of a door, or a door not quite shut. From empty rooms to rooms choking with junk, the discoveries speak to a dream shattered.” To read the full article, click here.
