NewsPress Release: 4/15/02 "body as narrative" is Topic of Marlboro Student's Art Exhibit
MARLBORO, VT - Kate Merrill, a senior at Marlboro College, will be presenting an exhibit of her work entitled, "dear francesca: a discourse on the body as a narrative," from May 1 to 4 in the college's Drury Gallery. An artists reception is scheduled for 8 p.m. Friday, May 3.
Merrill's exhibit includes photos, installations, works on paper, and experimental film, in conjunction with her final Plan of Concentration.
The Plan of Concentration is the cornerstone of Marlboro's academic program. It is an in-depth, self-designed exploration of a field or fields of each student's choosing. The Plan culminates in a major independent project involving research, one-to-one study with faculty in tutorials and a three-hour oral examination with Marlboro faculty and an outside examiner who is an expert in the student's field.
Founded in 1946, Marlboro College offers undergraduate education in the liberal arts and, since 1997, graduate study focused in Internet technologies. Its 300 undergraduate students enjoy a 7:1 student-faculty ratio, a voice in governing the community, and individualized courses of study on a 350-acre campus in the hills of southern Vermont.
Gallery hours are from 1 to 5 p.m. The Drury Gallery is fully accessible, and admission is free. For more information, please call (802) 257-4333 or visit the college online at http://www.marlboro.edu.
