Meredith Students Attend Inauguration Ceremony
A group of eight Meredith College students traveled to Washington, D.C., to attend the inauguration ceremony for President Barack Obama on Monday, Jan. 21, 2013. Professor of Business Rebecca Oatsvall and Professor of Human Environmental Science Diane Ellis accompanied the students.
While in Washington, D.C., the group went to the Smithsonian to view exhibits including the inaugural gowns of all the First Ladies, and explored Old Town Alexandria and Georgetown. The group included five fashion students, two business students and a computer science student.
News 14 interviewed Meredith students and other local college students who were attending the inaugural events. View the story here.
Two new art exhibitions recently opened in Meredith’s galleries.
In Johnson Hall’s Rotunda Gallery, “Artistry in Design: Visual Connections” will be on display through March 31. An exhibition by students in Fashion and Interior Design presents creations inspired by works of art. The work demonstrates the visual connection between different types of artistry and their interpretation of renowned artwork translated into expressions of fashion and interior design.
“Connections: Artists Invited by Meredith College Art Faculty” will be on display through March 17 in Frankie G. Weems Art Gallery. The interests and perspectives of the Meredith College art faculty are reflected in their choices of artists showing paintings, sculpture, clay, graphic design, photographs, textiles, video and mixed media.
