CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. – Austin Peay State University’s Wilbur N. Daniel African American Cultural Center features a variety of art donated by alumni and community organizations, but the colorful, abstract paintings of APSU alumna Miesha Arnold (‘07) are particularly eye-catching.

In February, visitors to the Center will have an opportunity to dive deeper into Arnold’s work, as she will be the focus of an exhibition of her watercolors, titled “Black Ink, Blue Collar.” The display, which is free and open to the public, will run from Feb. 2-27.  Art will be on sale throughout the month, and a silent auction will also be held. All funds from the silent auction will be donated to the Wilbur N. Daniel African American Cultural Center.

The exhibit will also feature jewelry from Cecilia Arnold and artwork from Jonathon Penn.

A reception with Arnold is also scheduled for February 26 from 5-7 p.m. and will be open to the public. This will be Arnold’s second exhibition at the Center, as the young artist presented an exhibition titled “Fail Forward” in February of 2014.

The Wilbur N. Daniel African American Cultural Center is located in room 120 of the Clement Building.
