So cool! Check out this awesome project by one of our art students Antauwn Wade!

Antauwn Wade, a fine arts major from Varnville, SC, is on a mission to encourage his community, in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic and recent tornadoes in his area.

He’s going all over his community, painting angels in storefronts and just about anywhere he can. He believes this small artistic act will help keep his neighbors and friends going during this difficult time. #PacerHeroes

“I started drawing at a very young age around, 4th grade. I am a self-taught artist; however, I took my first ever painting class in 2018 and haven’t put the brush down since.” - Antauwn Wade, Class of ‘21

Check out this lecture at the Aiken Center for the Arts! Dr. Jeremy Culler will be presenting on Monday September 16th at 10 am

USC-Aiken Art History Professor, Jeremy Culler, will offer a lecture entitled Notre Dame de Paris: Forged by Fire, on Monday, September 16 at 10:00 am at the Aiken Center for the Arts. The lecture is free, but you are encouraged to call to sign up in advance at (803)641-9094. Professor Culler will address the role of fire in the construction of the cathedral and his talk will cover the historical significance of Notre Dame de Paris as an ultimate expression of Gothic architecture.

The fire that happened at Notre Dame this past year brought to the forefront the significance of this historic structure and all it has contributed to the cultural landscape of the world. This fall as Aiken Community Theatre presents the musical, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, Aiken Center for the Arts will exhibit local works on the theme of Notre Dame.
