Why I’m Quitting Objective Writing
The idea of objectivity as it intersects within the journalism and writing worlds is one I have turned about in my mind for a long time now.

LILY HOBART: ON THE BEAUTY OF EARTH
Over the past two weeks, I’ve found myself getting closer to VCUarts landscape photographer, Lily Hobart (@lilyhobartt) – a junior in the Photography + Film department. We first bonded in September of last year after learning that we had both transferred from The School of The Art Institute of Chicago.

If you haven’t been to any of these shows, you’ve almost certainly seen their promotional posters taped to lamp posts, hanging on bulletin boards, or posted to social media.

Artist Spotlight: Time Warp Drag
It was the first live show I’d been to all year. Everyone was spaced out for safety, wearing masks, sitting outside the dining hall and yet I barely noticed all that.
