In preparation for and observance of this yearâ€™s Homecoming, the Georgetown College Fine Art Galleries is presenting a special exhibit entitled â€ś90 Years & Counting: Homecoming through the Ages.â€ť It is on display now until October 17 in the Cochenour Gallery of the Ensor Learning Resource Center (LRC) and is open to the public during regular LRC hours.
The exhibit was organized by students in Dr. Juilee Deckerâ€™s fall 2013 Curatorial Studies course. It features an accurate history of Homecoming since its introduction in 1923, the evolution of the student talent production Songfest, a tribute to Coach L.E. â€śBradâ€ť Jones who embodies the â€śSpirit of Homecoming,” and many artifacts that date back to the youngest days of the college.
â€ś90 Years & Counting: Homecoming through the Agesâ€ť offers a glimpse into the past and present. Alumni and friendsÂ are invited to share memories during a reception and discussion on Friday, October 11, beginning at 2:15 in the Cochenour Gallery, and meet the students who researched and created the exhibit.
The complete Homecoming weekend schedule is available online.
