Mini-Mountain Heritage Day will take place Wednesday, July 12, from 1:45-4 p.m. on the campus of Western Carolina University.
Olivia Ramos, a Charlotte native who studied entertainment design and technology at WCU, knew she wanted to do something involving the arts, but her small high school did not offer a theater arts program.
The Mountain Heritage Center opened a new exhibit for the summer, “Coverlets: New Threads in Old Patterns,” on display through Aug. 31.
Greg McPherson, WCU’s Fine Art Museum exhibition designer and assistant professor in the David Orr Belcher College of Fine and Performing Arts, and his minimester class installed a new exhibit in the second floor lobby of the HFR Administration Building.
A campuswide and community driven project will soon be underway to recenter Cherokee history and culture on WCU’s campus.
The outside of Western Carolina University’s Apodaca Science Building will soon feature a new sculpture.
The event will take place in the Bardo Arts Center May 5 at 7:30 p.m.
The portraits of each WCU chancellor or president that has served at the university will be removed from the library stairwell walls to be digitized for an online chancellor’s portrait gallery.
The Mountain Heritage Center has been selected by North Carolina Humanities to host the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service’s exhibit “Crossroads: Change in Rural America.”
