 VCAR Hosts Downtown Show
Liberty’s Visual Communication Arts (VCAR) program announced its fall semester Exhibit 492 art show. “Each semester the graduating seniors in the VCAR 492 classes participate in a student art show. This semester’s classes have an opportunity to show their work in a prime Lynchburg Art venue, the Riverviews Artspace (on Jefferson Street). The opening of the show will be part of the ‘First Friday’ event that is supported by the Lynchburg community. We are looking forward to sharing the talent of our students with the community,” Professor Sandra Day Slayton said.

Todd Smith, Director of VCAR added, “We are very pleased with this opportunity. The students in this show have advanced greatly over the last four years in their skills and personal style...This as a great reward for much hard work.”
The exhibit opens Nov. 7 at 6 p.m., and will include a reception. The exhibit will run through Nov. 28. Gallery hours are 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Wednesdays through Fridays and 12-5 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays.

Military Appreciation Week
Beginning Nov.10, students will honor past and present members of our national armed forces. The week includes a prayer service, military panel and a Blackhawk landing in between David’s Place and North Campus Thursday.
