Shortly after 11:00 a.m. today Wendy Smith (Athletics) and Terry Snyder (Library) met in the Cantor Fitzgerald Gallery to play their Round IV match against one another. The build-up of expectations and excitement had begun on email, then spilled to this site, and went as far as Facebook. In the end there could only be one winner and today that winner was Terry. Congrats Terry on the win. Keep on rolling! As she departs the tournament (but not the exhibition!) we’d like to say thanks to Wendy for participating and supporting this exhibition and competition in countless ways.

Last night artist Shaun El C. Leonardo presented his work to students and faculty. Wednesday evening, 8pm in Ryan Gym, he presents The Orchestra of Failure. Win, lose, or fail, walk away with a football jersey —if you can still walk.
For those of you who have never seen the inside of a skee-ball machine, here you go! It’s nothing fancy. Just a plastic channel, some thin wire triggers, and some other electrical wires. Over the course of the past few weeks these machines have seen more use than they probably do in a year. So, we’ve called in a pro to come on by and make the necessary repairs and tune-ups to get the machines as accurate as possible. Soon we’ll be all set to keep rolling straight to the finals!
Artist Shaun El C. Leonardo arrived at the gallery today to play some skee-ball and check on a delivery of jerseys for his collaborative performance work The Orchestra of Failure taking place in Ryan Gym on Wednesday, April 11 at 8:00 p.m.. The jerseys, created specifically for this work at Haverford, were printed to Shaun’s specifications by R & M Sporting Goods in Long Island City. This is the same company that printed the jerseys Shaun played football in as a kid. Come out and participate in the Orchestra with Shaun and you can walk away not only with an artifact from the performance work, but a piece of the artists own history.
