The Dark Side of OzMonday, January 09, 2012 By Ryan Dickmann
This November, the Art Club met for one of the most interesting meetings of the year. This event, known as The Dark Side of Oz, features a potluck style meal with each club member contributing drinks or food and a movie presentation. This is the twentieth year that the art club has watched the Dark Side of Oz. The club gathered together in the Griffin Centre, bringing all sorts of snacks and treats. After gorging themselves on meal reminiscent of the first thanksgiving (chips and pizza), they retreated to the building’s auditorium for the evening’s central presentation. The movie is a unique melding of the cinematic masterpiece The Wizard of Oz , and the Pink Floyd album Dark Side of the Moon . When played at the same time, the music and the film match up together in an eerie way and some of the lyrics seem to reference what is occurring on the screen. The event was an overall success and was an enjoyable time for all involved. This great tradition will surely continue for years to come.
