TU Humanities Student Showcase set for Thursday

On Thursday evening, April 19, Thomas University Humanities students will come together to share their work during the annual Humanities Student Showcase from 6 to 8 p.m. in the Student Life Center on TU’s Magnolia Campus, 1550 Magnolia St.

The event will include mixed media photography installations by students in Professor David Allio’s digital photography class. Students in Professor Richard Curtis’ drawing, art appreciation and ceramics classes will display their collaborative drawings and prints as well as ceramic works of art.

The showcase will include the release party for the 2018 Night Hawk Review, TU’s literary magazine. The release party will feature students reading their original writings along with guest poet David Kirby performing some of his works. Kirby's collection “The House on Boulevard St.: New and Selected Poems” was a finalist for the National Book Award in 2007. Kirby is the author of “Little Richard: The Birth of Rock ‘n’ Roll,” which the Times Literary Supplement of London called “a hymn of praise to the emancipatory power of nonsense.” Kirby’s honors include fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Guggenheim Foundation. His latest poetry collection is “Get Up, Please.”

During the event, the TU Jazz Ensemble will provide music. Refreshments will be served.

Part of the Arts for the Community at Thomas University (ACTU), the Humanities Student Showcase is free and open to the public. For more information, email actu@thomasu.edu or call 229-227-6964.
