Over the years there have been some projects that have captured the imagination of the BSC community as a whole. Some of you may remember the BSC BBQ Boys who traveled the South and did their own "ethnographic" study of BBQ and its relevance to Southern culture. The Boys kept everyone up to date with their blog. Since not every BSC student has an opportunity to travel with these projects during Interim, blogging is a way for the students to share their experiences and observations.
One interesting project that's taking place this Interim is one with Coty Lovelady and Johnny Eckerd who are studying Southern Craft Art. They are keeping a blog of their travels and experiences and say that "For the month of January, we will travel the South and visit its Craft Artists, documenting their work and process. We will post interviews, photos, and videos of these artists for your enjoyment. We're letting the project take us where it will, but ultimately hope to illuminate a larger overall idea of Craft Art's position and significance in society, as well as the sheer raw talent of those who have devoted their lives to their art."
