ULM College of Arts, Education, and Sciences to host art crawl on campus

Published September 09, 2015

The artwork of University of Louisiana at Monroe students and faculty will be presented during a special exhibition from 5-7 p.m., Thursday, Sept. 10, in various campus locations.

Admission is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be provided.

Walker Hall, Bry Hall, and the Sculpture Garden located behind Emy-Lou Biedenharn Recital Hall, will serve as galleries for this event.

The exhibits include “Waterline,” a student art show, a faculty art show, and multiple installations in the Sculpture Garden. 

“Waterline” was created by Dr. Bette J. Kauffman, associate professor of communication.


The project began a decade ago when Kauffman traveled to New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina to help friends gather salvageable items from their ground-floor apartment in New Orleans.  The flood lines throughout the city held her attention and she began to document them. 

“The exhibit is my response to the Katrina situation and seeing the water marks on all the buildings, vehicles, trees, etc. from New Orleans,” she said. “With 600 photographs taken, the current project has grown to be about 200 ft. in length.  A unique aspect of this exhibit is that viewers are encouraged to leave comments on the artwork with their stories from Katrina. This will be the 15th, and possibly last, exhibition of the artwork.”

The new Walker Hall Art Gallery will be open for the first time during the art crawl.

Although students typically exhibit their work in Bry Hall, a select few have earned the opportunity to display their work in the Walker Hall gallery. 

The gallery will be student run, and students will have the opportunity to jury shows, tag and price artwork, and host receptions. 


Dr. Joni Noble, associate professor of art, is the lead organizer of the gallery. Noble said that the gallery is a dream that has now become a reality thanks to the help of Dean Sandra Lemoine.

The Sculpture Garden will include a variety of artwork from students, faculty, and artists nationwide.

The faculty art show will feature work from the entire art faculty at ULM. The show includes sculpture, painting, photos, and ceramics.
