Lecture and Performance Series
The College's Cultural Affairs Committee plans an annual
Lecture and Performance Series on the Columbia campus.
Performances are designed to expose students to a variety of
writers, thinkers, actors, and musicians. These events are
part of the educational experience at the college and students are
encouraged to attend. Events are free and open to the wider
community. Recent authors have included Tori Murden McClure,
Gurney Norman, and Dr. Ben Witherington, and vocal and instrumental
musical performances have featured bluegrass, classical music, and
Lucretia C. Begley Gallery
An important extension of campus life and the community,
the Lucretia C. Begley Gallery hosts exhibitions by artists working
in a wide range of media and subjects. In addition to fostering
greater appreciation for the visual arts and exemplifying working
practices of artists, a primary function of the gallery is to
feature exhibitions of Art Major Seminar students, required of art
majors before they graduate. The gallery is located in the
W.W. Slider Humanities Center.
