TheWNDAACC art exhibit has been showcasing work by students for a while and still houses many original pieces by APSU students as well as artwork donated to the center. The WNDAACC has worked with Miesha Arnold with her work in the past.
Arnold’s art will be displayed in the WNDAACC, Clement 120 Monday, Feb. 2 through Tuesday, Feb. 27.
The reception for Arnold’s work is Thursday, Feb. 26 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. This is Arnold’s second exhibition at the center, as the young artist presented the exhibition “Fail Forward” in Feb. 2014.
There will also be a silent auction held for Arnold’s work. The silent auction will be for her piece titled, “American Dream.” All funds from the silent auction will be donated to the WNDAACC. Art will also be on sale throughout the month.
