TU Humanities Division to spotlight students, faculty

Thomas University’s Division of Humanities has two events planned that will showcase the talents of its students and faculty members.

“We feel that it’s important to let the public see what talented students and faculty we have in the Division of Humanities at TU,” said Dr. Karl Barton, Chair of the Division of Humanities. “Our students have a wide range of performing and fine arts from which to choose, and they find their callings within those specialties.”

The Faculty Performance Showcase will be held at 2 p.m. Wednesday, April 19, in Flowers Foods Executive Classroom inside Smith-Bonvillian Hall on TU’s Forbes Campus.

Performances include passages of Shakespeare with Lisa Mitchell, MusicArt performance art with Karl Barton and Rich Curtis, Sonnets by Sandra Simonds, and “Everywoman,” Bonnie Woodbery’s modern take on the Medieval “Everyman” morality play, in which Everywoman is made to reckon with her penchant for expensive shoes. The full cast of the applied Humanities faculty takes part, including cameos by Jason Dunn and June Dollar.

The Humanities Student Showcase will be held 6-8 p.m. Thursday, April 20, in the Student Life Center on TU’s Magnolia Campus. The event will include a printmaking and photography exhibit, a performance by the TU Jazz Ensemble along with the debut of the 2017 Night Hawk Review, TU’s arts journal. Students will also read their works from the Night Hawk Review and guest poet Josephine Yu will read her work.

There is no admission fee for either event, and the public is welcome. For more information, call 229-227-6964 or email actu@thomasu.edu.
