My Town: Kendall College of Art and Design dresses dancers for Grand Rapids Ballet's Movemedia ll

---NEWS RELEASE---

Grand Rapids Ballet’s (GRB) MOVEMEDIA series is all about creating a rich and full visual experience for the audience. That can be as simple as amplifying the light on a single dancer for dramatic effect, or as technical as enhancing the stage with video projection for the dancers to move in. This year, students from Kendall College of Art and Design of Ferris State University’s (KCAD) Pamella Roland DeVos School of Fashion are working hands-on with choreographer Penny Saunders in the costume creation for her world premiere piece in ‪MOVEMEDIA program II.

Now in its 4th year, MOVEMEDIA features all new internationally recognized choreographers. Applicants chosen are given artistic freedom to create their next great work on GRB’s professional dancers in a LEED certified building. MOVEMEDIA presents a unique perspective into the world of internationally acclaimed contemporary dance.

My Town: WMU-Cooley Law honors the impact of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

My Town: WMU-Cooley Law honors the impact of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. - In celebration of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, WMU-Cooley Law School and the school’s Black Law Student Association hosted a viewing of the documentary Martin Luther King Jr. – The Man and The Dream.

Following the documentary, a discussion was held about the impact King has had on individuals, the community and society. Leaders of the group discussion also contemplated what society would be like today if King was not assassinated 47 years ago.

“It’s important to reflect back on the work Dr. King accomplished almost 50 years ago and to consider what else we can do in terms of establishing equality,” said Te Smith, president, WMU-Cooley Black Law Students Association. “We all enjoyed celebrating his legacy together and the impact he has had on society.”
