Florida Public Archaeology Network (FPAN) Workshop: Archaeology of Fishing
New College Public Archaeology Lab
Free and open to the public

Along the Gulf Coast, archaeologists have found tantalizing clues about how Florida’s first residents fished these waters. Learn how archaeologists study artifacts linked to fishing like ancient fishing hooks, water craft, and nets then learn how Cuban fisherman fished the same waters in the more recent past. Archaeologists from the New College Public Archaeology Lab and the Florida Public Archaeology Network will be on hand with artifact displays and hands-on activities that allow you to explore the past just like an archaeologist. Try your hand at making a fishing net, learn about how archaeologists study the fish people were eating from the tiny bones they left behind, see how well you would do throwing a cast net like a Cuban fisherman, and much more! This event is designed for people of all ages and is free and open to the public. Click here to learn more.

MAY

MAY 1 | 6 - 8 p.m.
Thesis Art Reception
Gabriella Powell 

Isserman Gallery
Free and open to the pubic 

Within these busy daily routines, how do we test the boundary between the mundane and the profound? This thesis explores some of the mundane objects that we encounter on a daily basis, transforming regular household items into fantastical forms and environments by means of sculpture and installation art. I use materials like Q-tips, expansion spray foam, and plastic silverware to transform spaces and work toward blurring the boundaries between the recognizable and replaceable versus the fantastic and the profound.
