Interior designer/author Cathy Whitlock, who chronicles in print and online how films get their distinctive — and award-winning — looks, plans a special lecture in Murfreesboro on Tuesday, Sept. 11.
Whitlock’s lecture is co-sponsored by MTSU’s student chapter of the American Society of Interior Designers/International Interior Design Association and the Department of Electronic Media Communication in the university’s College of Mass Communication. It will begin at 6:30 p.m. Sept. 11 in Maney Hall at the Oaklands Historic House Museum.
MTSU’s Department of Art is celebrating the fall 2012 semester with “Painting Painters Paint,” an exhibition of the collected works of 15 innovative current artists, in the Todd Art Gallery through Thursday, Sept. 20.
Art Professor Sisavanh Houghton, who envisioned the exhibit, and fellow professors Melissa Newman, Bob Durham and Charles Clary invited colleagues from across the Midsouth to participate.
The result is an outstanding collection of style, interpretation and process, according to gallery curator Eric Snyder.
