MONROE  — The College of Arts, Education, and Sciences at the University of Louisiana Monroe is hosting the Fall 2018 Art Crawl at several campus locations on Thursday, November 1, from 5-7 p.m. Admission is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be provided.  


Participating sites include the Walker Gallery, Walker Hall Dean’s Conference Room, Bry Art Gallery, ULM Sculpture Garden, and the Stubbs Hall advanced art student studios. A showcase of ULM’s talented students, faculty, staff, and alumni will be on display throughout the crawl.

The Walker Gallery includes student and faculty artwork including paintings, pottery, sculpture, prints and photographs. Photographs will be on display in the CAES Dean’s Conference Room in Walker Hall. 

A selection from ULM photographer Emerald McIntyre will be one of the highlights and will include her photographs of the student murals from Garrett Hall, which once stood at the corner of Northeast Drive and University Avenue. Also in the Dean’s Conference Room will be striking drone photography from ULM professor Dr. Sean Chenoweth. Heather Pilcher and Cyndy Robertson will be on hand as well, signing copies of their collection of historical photographs, entitled “University of Louisiana Monroe,” which will be available for purchase.

Bry Gallery will display the work of visiting artist, Joshua Brinlee, from Oxford, Miss., who will be showing Masculine Projections, a collection of digital prints. The nearby advanced art students’ studios in Stubbs Hall will be open so that visitors may meet some of the student artists and see their works in progress. Visitors are also encouraged to walk through our beautiful Sculpture Garden.

Various performers from the Music Program will display their talents in Walker Gallery and Bry Hall during the crawl. Among them will be cast members of “Candide,” who will perform selections from the opera in Walker Gallery between 5- 6 p.m., offering a sneak preview of the production.

The College of Arts, Education, and Sciences hopes to enrich the community by giving its members the opportunity for the community to walk through our beautiful campus and appreciate the outstanding work of each artist. Dr. Joni Henry Noble, Professor in ULM’s School of Visual and Performing Arts, recognizes students’ accomplishments. “I am so proud of our ULM Art Majors and all of their efforts to curate and operate Walker Gallery. I hope everyone can attend our ULM Art Crawl and meet these talented artists.”

Following the ULM Art Crawl, the Music, Theatre, and Dance departments will present “Candide” at 7:30 p.m. in Brown Hall. The community can enjoy a full evening of entertainment and culture on ULM’s campus that night. General admission to this performance is $15, and tickets for ULM faculty and staff are $5. Students will be admitted for free with a valid ID.
