News Coverage of Jesuit Music, Stage & Film, and Visual Arts

Last Thursday on January 16th, Jesuit was extremely blessed and lucky to be able to host the Laura Roosevelt and her new "Historic American Pop" collection. Laura Roosevelt, the great granddaughter of Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt, has spent 6 years creating this project filled with iconic historical photographs with textured and abstract backgrounds, adding a new meaning to some...
Jean-Claude Gaugy’s  painting There is No Death (Il n'y a pas de mort) has become a much-loved often-studied piece in the Jesuit school community. “I have closely observed the piece many times,” says Joe Tom Hood, ’12, “and I believe it shows that Jesus Christ gave his life for our sins.”  Indeed, art and theology classes alike tour the Jesuit...

On Thursday night, December 10th, starting promptly at 7:00...
The theme for Jesuit’s Awarefest and Issues Day this year was clean water, a serious problem in the world we live in, even though we may not always see it firsthand. The booths at this year’s festivities included the Environmental Club, Medical Society, 24/7, the Pro-Life Club, the Social Justice Club, Irish Heritage, Interact, and Millions for One, with the...
I have spent a lot of time recently on designing and realizing two characters for my amateur portfolio. As a bonus, just to prove that anyone can do it, I only used software that is either open source or free to students, so if you are interested in 3d design and want to make something you can be proud...
