SCAD’s student-produced magazine, District Quarterly, hosted a launch party for its third issue from 6-9 p.m. on Feb. 16 in the Habersham Hall courtyard. Accompanying refreshments, food, and music provided by SCAD Radio, was a photo booth where guests could enhance their style with paper cut-outs of mustaches, monocles and hats.
The issue marked the first under editor-in-chief Eboni-Jade Wooten, a fourth-year dramatic writing major from Midway, N.C. Each quarter’s theme varies and this one — Style — sparked students’ imaginations.
“We chose style because there’s so many versions of style whether it be fashion, how you represent yourself to the world, or your style of writing, drawing or whatever it may be,” she said.
District Quarterly publishes original creative works from students, including essays and poetry, short stories, photography, paintings, graphic designs and drawings. All of the artists’ works appearing in the spring issue will be exhibited during the launch party.
“At SCAD people don’t have the chance to show themselves as much as I’d like to see,” Wooten said. “I thought it would be a really nice way for people to express themselves — to show the world who they really are.”
The next issue’s theme is Magic.
