“When we started fifteen years ago and we had
only three lectures per year and our budget was $250, I did not know whether or
not we would grow it into what it has evolved.
Fortunately, with the support of the college, and with the support of
donors, individuals, groups, businesses and granting agencies in our community,
we have garnered enough support to take this series and grow it to the point
where, last year, we had attendees from fourteen counties in Ohio and ten in
West Virginia. We had a couple of
international visitors, as well as people from California and New York.”
the first event is Saturday evening, and it’s a fundraiser for the series…
“At 6:30 pm,
we’re going to have a reception for the fall semester art exhibit, which we run
parallel to the fall semester events in Evergreen. Our two artists for that are Mary Lou
Christy, who is a local photographer and is gaining in reputation throughout
the area. And, we have a display of
twelve beautifully hand-carved gourds by local artist Cathy Norosky. People can come at 6:30 and enjoy the art and
have some finger foods at our reception.
Then at 7:30, we have an international performer named Samite of Uganda,
who’s going to be on our stage.”
tomorrow’s event are $15 for adults; $10 for children and seniors. All events in the Evergreen Arts and
Humanities Series take place Graham Auditorium at Washington State.
Saturday, all remaining events of the series are free.
