Aspire News for October 2016

Megan Jerndt has been selected as Aspire’s Student Artist of the Month. Along with being on track to graduate this December with a BFA in photography, Jerndt works in the gallery at Lubeznik Center for the Arts. She was hired by Lubeznik after an internship.

David Dufour has been spending time regularly in Chicago lately, learning and perfecting his writing style in sketch comedy at The Second City Training Center. The Second City is a groundbreaking organization famous for its part in training Saturday Night Live (SNL) greats John Belushi, Chris Farley, Steve Carrell, Stephen Colbert, Tina Fey, and Amy Poehler, and now IU South Bend’s own David Dufour.

Jameson Cooper, Kevin Gillen, Ruby Jazayre, Jennifer Muñiz, Jorge A. Muñiz, Rachel Orue, Eric Souther, John E. Thompson and Jeff Wright were in the news recently.

It was the perfect way to kick off a guest artist series. As actress Dawnn Lewis spoke at The History Museum in South Bend on September 7, she spoke with reverent passion, and often warm humor and humility, about the ability of art to change lives and its importance in our communities. As with every lecture in this series, admission to hear Lewis was free.
