If you visit Vassar College from April 19 through May 4, you may come across a man diligently plugging away at an old-fashioned typewriter. Los Angeles-based artist Tim Youd will be on campus for two weeks for the 56th iteration of his ongoing project, 100 Novels, in which he retypes famous books at locations that are significant to their plots. At Vassar, Youd will retype 1933 alumna Mary McCarthy's The Group in its entirety. McCarthy's novel is about the lives of eight women after they graduate from Vassar. Every day, Youd will go to a different spot on campus and type on the same make and model typewriter that McCarthy used. On April 19 at 5pm, Youd will give an opening performance at the Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center. (845) 437-5370.
