MOUNT VERNON—A traveling art exhibit, composed of artwork by college-level students in Ekaterinburg, Russia, will make its first stop of a three-part journey across the state Friday, April 13 at Brewton-Parker College (BPC) in Mount Vernon.
BPC will host the exhibition by The Art and Architecture Institute of Ekaterinburg, Russia in the Fountain-New Library April 13-15, with a reception held April 15 from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. in honor of the exhibitors. Exhibit hours are 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on the 13th and 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. on the 14th.
The limited traveling exhibit will be hosted by Waycross College April 16-18 and Shorter College (Rome, Ga.) April 19-23.
The exhibition stems from an educational partnership between Brewton-Parker, Anderson University (S.C.) and educators in Ekaterinburg, Russia. Ekaterinburg is a city of 1.2 million people on the Asian side of Russia in the Ural Federal District. Russian educators visited BPC in August 2006 as part of the educational partnership and to begin the planning process of this exhibit.
Brewton-Parker College is the only four-year, liberal arts Christian college in Southeast Georgia. Affiliated with the Georgia Baptist Convention, the college offers 37 majors and 23 minors of study in a caring, Christian environment that nurtures the whole student.
