This Week at Austin Peay: Veterans Day celebrations planned for this week

Austin Peay hosts several events every year in honor of the military and its veterans.

(Posted on Monday, Nov. 8, 2021)

The Military Student Center (MSC) will host its Veterans Day celebration from 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 8, at the William E. & Sadako S. Newton Military Family Resource Center.

MSC also will host a special lunch for student and staff who are veterans from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 9, at the Caf in the Morgan University Center.

And the Newton Military Family Resource Center will celebrate a ribbon-cutting at 1 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 10. The celebration will take place at the center, 426 College St. The center is named after the late parents of APSU alumna Wilma Newton (’73), who made the generous donation to renovate the facility in 2019.

And a reminder: The university will be closed on Veterans Day in observance of the holiday.

Artist Paul Rucker to deliver artist lecture on Tuesday

“Preserve & Protect” – a new exhibit at The New Gallery in the Art + Design building – looks at the complex ways in which textiles, particularly garments, relay the resilience of a culture – worn for protection but also as a way to project one’s identity. These textiles have the power to preserve but also rewrite cultural history.

Artists in the exhibit include Anangookwe Wolf, Paul Rucker, Winnie van der Rijn, Michael Sylvan Robinson and Stephanie Syjuco.

This week, Rucker will talk about his work at 6 p.m. Nov. 9 via Zoom. Registration for the live-streaming event can be found here at www.bitly.com/PaulRucker.

This exhibition – which is co-curated by Michael Dickins, Austin Peay’s director of galleries, and Erika Diamond, assistant director of CVA galleries at Chautauqua Institution – also will be open during the next Clarksville First Thursday Art Walk from 5-7:30 p.m. on Dec. 2.

The exhibit and all events are free and open to the public.

A virtual tour of the exhibition is available at www.apsu.edu/art-design/thenewgallery.

Hours for The New Gallery are 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Monday- Friday, closed on weekends and holidays, and follow the university’s academic calendar.
