The spring 2013 edition of BeanSwitch, the University of Tennessee at Martin’s art and literature magazine, was released Monday at a special preview event on campus.
BeanSwitch publishes original art and literature created by UT Martin students, faculty, staff and the surrounding community.
Artists, poets and authors who have work published in this edition attend a preview event Monday to display original art and offer readings from the current magazine.
Co-executive editor Sheila Scott of Kenton said the artwork that was chosen for the cover this semester is titled “Headed West.” Musical entertainment and trick rope demonstrations at the preview reflected the western theme.
Musical entertainment was presented by Ryan Bomar, a senior English major, as well as Andrew Cochran and Ezra Nance. Trick rope demonstrations were given by Jacob Dagenhart, a sophomore agriculture major and UTM rodeo team member.
BeanSwitch is taking pre-orders for T-shirts at $15 each with the artwork “Fire & Ice” by Cody Speed that was featured on the BeanSwitch Fall 2012 issue.
The group is also selling Adopt-a-Pet tie-dye bears and hawks for $13 each. A dollar of each of these sales will go to UT Martin student and cancer patient Bethany Scott to help with medical bills.
Additional information is available on the web at; by email at; on Facebook by searching BeanSwitch; and on Twitter @MrJamesBean.
The magazine is also organized by co-executive editor Misty Dunlap of Dresden, along with visual editor Kalsey Butler of Collinwood. Dr. Chris Hill, associate professor of English, and Tomi McCutchen Parrish, instructor of communications, serve as faculty advisers.
