Campus Scavenger Hunt 2020STATIC is hiding goodies all over campus, and it's YOUR job to hunt them down!

Beginning at 5 p.m. on Saturday, September 5, and continuing each day at 5 p.m. until Saturday, September 12, STATIC will release various clues on a different one of its social media accounts (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and TikTok), leading you to a different location on campus to track down some awesome prizes.

Possible prizes include: IUP gear, STATIC gear, Co-op Store gift cards, local Indiana restaurant gift cards, UberEats gift cards, vouchers for future STATIC event tickets, and... something else pretty big!

To play, follow STATIC on all of our social media accounts, and be the first one to track down the prizes above! Then, take a picture or a selfie and send it to STATIC or tag STATIC on a post noting that you found the prize!

Please adhere to all COVID-related precautions required at STATIC events, including mandatory mask usage, careful hand washing and hygiene, and minimum 6-ft social distancing from others.

Volunteers help us to get the word out that this type of violence shouldn’t be part of our campus.

We are looking for volunteers to help in a variety of ways. Attend this training via Zoom.

The exhibition “Brita d’Agostino: Reconstructing Desires” focuses on the act of cultural consumption by transforming print media targeted towards women into dynamic and semi-abstract collages as installations. Informed by historical art movements and contemporary practice, Brita d’Agostino reimagines the visual language of glamour magazines into hybridized collaged forms created both intentionally and intuitively. This online exhibition is a virtual installation designed specifically for the Kipp Gallery at Indiana University of Pennsylvania.

Through her process d’Agostino explores the visual design and patterns embedded in a social system of images carefully constructed to elicit desire in consumers. She is deconstructing and recombining surfaces, subverting the original meaning of the images through her own aesthetic investigations. Her playful synthesis of her source material into new forms and presented in a different context offers a fresh perspective of the content for the audience. The end result is a combination of shapes and color that borders on abstraction, yet incorporates elements of contemporary American consumer culture.

Exhibit Dates: September 15th-October 31st
