Each year, Baylor hosts the Senior Bachelor of Fine Arts Exhibition where graduating seniors can display their work.
The event began Tuesday with a reception and will run through Sunday at the Martin Museum of Art in the Hooper-Schaefer Fine Arts Center in galleries 1 and 2.
The Baylor and Waco community will find art is a way for people to show off their talent today.
The Baylor Piper Children’s Art Gala and Auction, featuring photographs and paintings by children at the Piper Center for Family Studies and Child Development and other pieces by various Baylor faculty artists, will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. today in the Martin Museum foyer of the Hooper-Schaefer Fine Arts Center. The art gala is free and open to the public.
You don’t have to look very far to find Baylor students going above and beyond. This time, look no further than the art department, where a varied collection of artwork is currently on display.
The Martin Museum of Art is hosting the Baylor Art Student Exhibition, which started on March 28 and will run until April 17 in Gallery 1 and 2. The exhibition is free and open to the public.
A block away from the newly renovated Waco Convention Center stands a building that looks like it was plucked straight out of the 1600s. Heavy wooden doors positioned beneath and between the carved likenesses of Catholic saints lead to a cavernous room filled from floor to ceiling with historic and meaningful artwork.
Waco history is coming to life for citizens and tourists via the cattle drive statues in front of the Waco Suspension Bridge.
The statues are meant to represent the cattle drive of the Chisholm Trail, which passed through Waco.
When I saw this necklace on Etsy, I immediately wanted one, but I was not going to pay $75 no matter how much it was calling my name. So I Googled the name hoping to find some instructions on how to make one for myself. I found a YouTube video with step-by-step instructions. The YouTube video explains this DIY the best, but I’ve tried my best to write out the steps and include what I did differently.
I found this cute DIY project on Pinterest, though its original source was the blog House of Humble. I was looking for something to decorate my apartment for Valentine’s Day, and to take my mind off the fact that I’d be spending the day at work instead of being romanced, I decided to take on a project. To save myself some money, I adapted the project to incorporate things I already had in the house. I’d give the project a medium difficulty rating. It requires a basic knowledge of sewing, and I recommend being careful with the hot glue gun. Apart from that, it was pretty straightforward.
For those still searching for a Valentine’s Day gift, an arts and crafts event being held tonight by local Waco boutique Harts N Crafts may be the answer.
From 7 to 9 p.m., Harts N Crafts, located at 1125 S. Eighth St., next to Common Grounds, will host a Valentine’s Day party complete with free cupcakes and drinks where patrons will also have the opportunity to create handmade gifts for their loved ones.
This weekend art will be created, and the canvas of choice for many Wacoans will be their own bodies.
The Immersed In Ink Tattoo & Arts Festival will take place Friday through Sunday at the Waco Convention Center.
The festival will host tattoo artists from across the United States and provide live entertainment.
