Arts & Lecture
The College's Cultural Affairs Committee plans an annual Arts
and Lectures Series for the A.P. White Campus in Columbia.
Speakers and musical performers are selected to expose students to
a variety of writers, thinkers, performers, and musicians.
Each year a writer/scholar from the Woodrow Wilson Fellows program
spends a week on campus, meeting with classes, students, and
faculty. Events in the Arts and Lecture series are part of
the educational experience at the College, and students are
encouraged to attend. Nearly all events are free to students
and to the wider community. Recent events have included a
campus visit from Kentucky poet Laureate Frank X Walker and
concerts by the Reel World String Band and by Irish pianist Finghin
Lucretia C. Begley
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.
Student Services present a number of lectures and interactive
cultural events each semester on a changing schedule. The
Student Activities office in the Cralle Student Union Building
(SUB) may be contacted for the schedule of events.
The Academic Affairs office plans Academic Celebrations near the
end of the fall and spring terms where students are invited to
present their research and service learning projects in poster
sessions and short presentations. The events are open to
College and community members.
The Lindsey Players, the LWC Band, and choral groups present a
variety of plays and concerts each semester. Recitals
by instrumental and vocal students are also open to the public.
