The historical value and preservation of architecture and land is the underlying theme of an Austin Peay State University student's art exhibit next week.

Senior Alison Mione will present “Urban Treasures,” opening 7-9 p.m., Monday, Nov. 27 in the Trahern Gallery on APSU's campus. The show also will be available from 3-5 p.m., Tuesday, Nov. 28; 4-7 p.m., Wednesday, Nov. 29; and 3-5 p.m., Thursday, Nov. 30.

Mione said her exhibit illustrates her fear that old buildings are being replaced by “society's uncontrollable need” for something new.

“It seems that everywhere you go, historical buildings are being demolished or the land is being stripped away in the name of progress,” she said. “If people would stop and think of the history of these places, it would be worthwhile for these buildings to be reinstated as a refurbished place for a new purpose.”
