The Loop Café describes itself as a “container for art experimentation” and last night was no exception. Though more than experiments, attendees of the twice-yearly reading of the literary anthology heard well-polished pieces. The literary anthology, a fusion of essays from the creative writing and photographs from the photography classes, is in press but students read from their final drafts on the Loop’s stage as the lights changed from cyan to magenta to yellow and back. Cynthia Clough, professor of creative writing, was pleased with the event and the readings. “It was the perfect ending to a semester of writing and rewriting,” she commented. The open-mic event, much like the end-of-semester art show, allows students the opportunity to reflect on a semester in Perugia and share these experiences.
