Grizzly Roast is Closing

It is with a heavy heart we have to announce the closing of the Grizzly Roast. We have had an exciting 3 years being able to serve our students and staff and grow as a business. We wish nothing but the best for this coffee shop and we will hopefully see something great come out of it in the future.

If you have any open tabs with us or free coupons, please use them by the end of the semester. We will start having a limited menu, keeping our most popular items in stock. If you have any questions feel free to reach out to ingrammh@grizzlies.adams.edu, or ask a barista.

Have a nice weekend!

Senior Art Shows Opens on ASU campus

The Adams State Art Department is proud to announce the opening of the annual Bachelor of Fine Art and Bachelor of Art senior shows in the Cloyde Snook and Hatfield galleries.
The BFA show, Peripheral Vision: Locality, Nature & Survivors, is a collection of work created by Amanda Strickland, Piper Meuwissen, and Alicia David. Their artwork celebrates the resilience and beauty of nature, women and local communities. Its goal is for people to take a closer look at the things around them that often don’t receive the time and attention they deserve. Largely focused on multimedia installations, the trio works with clay, graphics, photography, painting/drawing and found objects.

The Mashup, works of contrasting concepts is a Juried student show put on by the BA students: Harry Roberts -Hunt, Isabel Rodriguez, and Christina Chavez. These artists will have pieces featured in this show alongside their fellow Adams State peers. The Juror for this show is MA Painter and ASU alumni, Jasmine Little.

Both shows will be on display at the Cloyde Snook Gallery and Hatfield Gallery from April 19- May 7 (8am-5pm M-F) and available for viewing online starting April 29th @ tinyyurl.com/asuartshow2021
SHOWS ARE OPEN TO ALL ASU STUDENTS, STAFF AND FACULTY! Stop by and bring your friends!
