Magale exhibition will complete the 2nd annual Centenary in Paris
SHREVEPORT, LA — Centenary's Magale Library will host an exhibition of works created by students during the 2nd annual Centenary in Paris program. The exhibition will take place on Saturday, August 29, from 3 — 5 p.m. and is open to the public.
The 2015 Centenary in Paris Exhibition will be on display in Magale's lobby and will consist of visual works that the students completed while in Paris, such as posters and photography. There will also be a poetry reading held on the second floor of Magale in the Student Resource Center.
"The fun thing about this exhibition is that it is entirely made up of works created by first-year students while they were studying in Paris. It is a great opportunity for them to get their work seen early in their collegiate career," said Centenary's Conference and Events Coordinator, Kris Holland. "Last year this event had a wonderful turnout from the community, along with many parents and students. We expect it to get larger every year as participation grows and it will certainly be something that the students enjoy looking back on for years to come."
Over 150 first-year students departed for Paris, France on August 5 for this one-of-a-kind academic program.. While in Paris, students have been exploring music, sustainability, African-American literature, the concept of revolution, statistics, and creative writing, all through the filter of French culture. Students will continue the work for these courses after their return from Paris on August 14, earning four credit hours through Centenary's August immersive term preceding the traditional fall semester.
