At a college well-known for athletics, the fifth Annual Arts & Culture Fair, to be held on Wednesday, April 13 from 4:30 to 7 p.m. (EST), parades another element of Ancilla. Presented by the Ancilla College Student Government Association, the event will showcase poetry readings, music, and dance demonstrations to be held in the Gerald Ball Library on the Ancilla College campus.
“We are excited to see how well this year’s event goes. We have added in some new elements, such as a painting demonstration, as well as a variety of multicultural foods to sample,”said Jill Neidlinger, student government faculty advisor.
Also new to this year is the presence of Scripta, the creative arts journal of Ancilla College. Showcasing the creative works of the students, Scripta contributors will be on hand to read, perform, and discuss their submissions starting at 4:45 p.m. (EST).
“These students work hard at projects they love and often have no place to express themselves. This gives them a proper forum and incentive to hone their craft,” said Chad Kebrdle, English instructor and editor of Scripta. “It is our belief at Ancilla and The Center at Donaldson that art has a place in all careers and disciplines.”
After the events, the art exhibit will remain on display until April 14 in the Gerald Ball Library. It is free and open to the public.
