Prof. curated notable hall of fame
Bruce Conforth is a lecturer
in the Department of American
Culture and received his doctor-
ate in 1990 from Indiana Univer-
sity. Conforth was the founding
curator of the Rock 'N' Roll Hall
of Fame in Cleveland, Ohio, and
is a director of the Blues Heritage
Foundation. He won the Golden
Apple Award as the Most Out-
standing Professor of2012.
Areyou happy about how the
Rock 'N' Roll Hall of Fame
has grown and changed
under later curators?
I have (gone back). It was an
exciting and interesting job at the
time. But I've moved on to a lot
of other things in my life, so that
particular element does not hold
a lot of interest for me anymore.
I'm much more interested in liv-
ing today than I am in living in
Could you speak of your recent
I have a book that's going tobe
coming out: "The Definitive Biog-
raphy of Robert Johnson." And
I've more or less been interested
in Robert Johnson for the last 50
years. I think he's probably the
first modern blues artist. And it's
interesting how much mythology
American culture has surround-
ed him with.
Artistically, how doesbeing
a youth in 1960s New York
compare to living in
Ann Arbor now?
We're talking about a 50-year
difference. The times have
changed. As a result, obviously,
I've changed. Ann Arbor is a
remarkably exciting and vibrant
place and I love it here. And I don't
think it would be fair to compare
New York City in the '60s with
Ann Arbor in 2010. Each place
has its own unique characteris-
tic and history and culture. It's
kind of like comparing apples and

Fashion show promotes arts
and innovation on campus
makes its eighth
apperance on campus
By BRIE WINNEGA
Daily Staff Reporter
Student models donning under-
grad-produced designs stomped
down the runway Saturday night.
EnspiRED, a student organiza-
tion that aims to promote artis-
tic expression at the University,
hosted the fashion show. Taking
place in the Biomedical Science
Research Building, it also featured
pieces from artists nationwide.
The event is traditional-
ly EnspiRED's biggest of the
year, LSA senior Tyrell Collier,
EnspiRED production manager
and president, said.
"We wanted to show that you
can be innovative, you can be cre-
ative, and you can do things that
are outside of the norm," Col-

Her said. "I feel like when people
leave this show this will be some-
thing they've never seen before
In its eighth year on campus,
EnspiRED donated 15 percent of
the show's proceeds to Art Road
Nonprofit, an organization dedi-
cated to funding art classes in
southeast Michigan schools that
have lost support for their pro-
grams. EnspiRED is also plan-
ning a trip to Detroit to assist the
nonprofit through volunteer work.
The majority of the generated
money will fund this year's and
next year's show.
The show featured five waves
of clothing designs: Liberation,
Creation, Innovation, Domination
and Live Red Nation.
"To 'live red' means to be
happy, be creative and just be you
and do what makes you happy,"
LSA senior Danetta Jameson, an
EnspiRED model, said.
Collier said he hopes to demon-
strate the positive influence Afri-
can American students have on
campus through organizations like
EnspiRED and its fashion show.
"We are a majority Black orga-
nization, meaning that aur execu
tive board is a majrity African
Americans," Collicr said. "'this is
being Black at Michigan to me."
For the first time, Music, The-
atre and Dance sophomore Stephon
Dorsey had the opportunitytoshow-
case his own clothing designs from
his line called Vision by Goodsteph.
"I wanted to showcase some-
thing that exemplified the whole
idea of using what you have to get
what you want," said Dorsey. "At
first, it was definitely a little hec-
tic, and I was a little anxious and
worried, but once I was able to see
everybody on the screen - that
was the most glorifying moment
of my life."
LSA junior Taylor Clayborne said
she enjoyed the outfits, models and
venue that the show had to offer.
"I think that it's awesome that
they're using local and student
clothing lines," Clayborne said.
"I'm really impressed that this
was all student-run."
