The gift card drawing for participants in our School of Music student and faculty survey will be held on Monday, Oct. 12, at 4:30 in the lobby of the McCrary Music Building. Everyone is welcome to come, but you need not be present to win. Winners who are not present will be contacted by e-mail and will have 3 days to respond before another winner is drawn.
Haven’t taken the survey yet? There’s still time! It will close on Monday morning. See the previous post below for links, and please note that only current music students and faculty are eligible.
I’m thrilled to announce that my artist’s book, KnownUnknown has been selected to appear in two more juried shows after it’s debut in the Ideation Experience show at Abecedarian Gallery in Denver, Colorado this summer.
My book is currently part of Words|Matter: A Library for Artist’s Books exhibition in Chicago (October 3-29) and was also chosen to appear in Blood Quantum (November 6 – December 19) at 23 Sandy Gallery in Portland, Oregon.
I am honored to have been selected for these three juried shows alongside many well known book artists that I admire and have collected as part of the Baylor Book Arts Collection.
If you are a current student or faculty member in the Baylor School of Music, please follow the link below to take our quick online survey. It takes only 1-2 minutes, and you can enter a drawing to win a $25 gift card to Starbucks or the Baylor Bookstore. Two of each will be given away.
Questions about this research project can be directed to Clayton Crenshaw at ClaytonE_Crenshaw@baylor.edu or 254-710-6679.
The CFAL is giving away some excess music books in the Listening/Viewing Center, near the Service Desk. They’ll be there until Friday or until they are gone. After that, any leftovers will be moved to the give-away shelves on the Garden Level.

We have brand new, lightening-fast iMacs in the META lab! Go to the Crouch website for more information about software installed on these new machines.
3 new iMacs have replaced the mac mini’s near the Crouch Circulation Desk.
The biggest news is that all three iMacs have most of the same software available in the META lab a few feet away (they will not have Pyware) INCLUDING MIDI keyboards for use with programs like Finale and GarageBand.
… the iMacs in the META lab will be upgraded very soon as well :)!
