MacDowell Month - It's almost here!

A reblog reminder about appreciating the fine arts from Mu Tau Mu (virtual alumnae chapter connected to Zeta Upsilon chapter at Case Western Reserve University):

Support Alpha Chi Omega sisters involved in the arts

This is one of our absolute favorites at MTM because it's as easy to do long-distance as it is locally. Since all collegiate chapters and most alumnae chapters are local, we'll talk about that first. Here are some ideas:
1. Make a list of all chapter members who are artists - those in the theater, orchestra, choir, as well as the poets, writers and architecture students - and share it with the chapter and local alumnae.
2. Make a calendar of all the fine arts events the sisters in Item 1 are participating in during February and the rest of the month to share.
3. Attend the events in Item 2 as a group and support fine arts and Alpha Chi sisters at the same time!

1. Find video and audio files of sisters' performances and share them. See some samples that MTM has shared at the bottom of our
Alpha Chi Omega songs page. Each week in February we send out a link that everyone can enjoy at their leisure... some are from alumnae and others from campus events that collegiate members participate in (like the orchestra and chorale).
2. Find ways to support fine arts on campus. Last year, MTM was a top-level sponsor for the 10th Anniversary show of a student-run theater group, the FootLighters, at CWRU. Sisters had been involved all through the years in productions, both on stage and behind the scenes, so we wanted to help the organization celebrate. It was good PR and inexpensive!
3. Highlight Alpha Chi Omega alumnae artists. For example, read a book by an Alpha Chi Omega author (see a
slideshow with some options here) or learn more about a sister who is an artist or composer or architect.
Whatever you decide to do, we hope you enjoy it! We also hope you'll share your thoughts and plans with us by commenting below. Thanks and Happy MacDowell Month!
