In politics, the old adage “having a seat at the table” is often used to refer to those in positions of power, influence and policy making. This poster exhibit highlights a few of the women who have held political office and had “a seat at the table” in decision making for the Commonwealth.

This exhibit tells the stories of freshmen year from participants in a student success intiative, WKU Freshmen Guided Pathway (FGP). This cohort of first-time, full-time students who graduated from one of five high schools in Warren County represent the typical WKU freshman in terms of academic achievement prior to admission and their demographic makeup.

FGP assists students as they negotiate the often difficult affective and academic shifts between high school and college. Learn more about the program in this exhibit, presented by the Kelly M. Burch Institute for Transformative Practices in Higher Education, Office of Strategic Communications and Marketing, the College of Education and Behavioral Sciences, the WKU Center for Literacy, and the Kentucky Museum.

Inner(re)visions Gallery Reception and PCAL-Commissioned Painting Unveiling will begin at 7:15 p.m. at University Gallery, FAC (second floor). The events are open to the public; masks required.

The Department of Art & Design is excited to announce the unveiling of a painting commissioned by the WKU PCAL Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion (DEI) Initiative, to be featured within Marshman’s larger exhibit and unveiled during the reception.

Ebony Marshman will also exhibit a larger body of recent work, meet with students for a Deliberative Dialogue discussion on Representation in the Arts, and conduct Individual Student Studio Visits.

Marshman sees her painting practice as a constructive communion with self and spirit much akin to journaling. “The title of this exhibition, Inner(re)visions, relates not just to my relationship with my imagination, but what results in me centering my own gaze…while navigating externally constructed realities.” Ebony earned her BFA in Painting from WKU in 2013 and M.Ed. in Montessori Education from Loyola University in 2016 and currently lives and works in Washington, D.C.
