Seeing Red

Walking around the campus at Laramie County Community College, one might find a curious set of posters with a man’s hand gripping a dripping crimson paintbrush with the title “Red” in capital letters. The posters are just the first thing people see about this play: A whole other world is connected to this first LCCC fall production in mid-September.

The play, written by John Logan in 2009, centers on the story of Mark Rothko, an American abstract impressionist living in New York City in 1958. During this time, Rothko was commissioned to paint several murals for the Seagram Building. However, Rothko declined the project, and this play is a small snapshot into his life during that time.

The production opens on Rothko receiving a new assistant, Ken, who aids in constructing these murals for the Five Seasons’ restaurant. During the course of the five scenes, Rothko and Ken develop a mentor-student and a father-son relationship.
The biggest catch to this play? The cast. The only characters the audience sees the entire time are Mark Rothko and Ken. But, don't think for a second that because of the short number of characters that this production was an easy feat.

Worldwide Photowalk

Famous Y Cross Ranch to be site of annual event

The Laramie County Community College mass media/multimedia department will sponsor the annual “Worldwide Photo Walk” on Saturday, Oct. 11, at the Y Cross Ranch near Horse Creek, Wyoming.

The free event is designed to bring together a group of photographers on one day for a short period of time to shoot a specific area. Simultaneously, similar walks will take place around the world that weekend. Each year, more than 30,000 photographers walk in more than 1,000 locations around the world, capturing more than 6 million images in one day.

J.L. O’Brien, local Photo Walk leader and multimedia instructor at LCCC, described the event as a way to meet other photographers in the area and to see how they approach the same subject. The two of the last three years’ walks each attracted approximately 50 photographers.
