Clarksville, TN – Each year, Austin Peay State University selects a novel for incoming freshman. This year the selection was “Where am I Wearing: A Global Tour to the Countries, Factories, and People That Make Our Clothes” by Kelsey Timmerman.
The novel develops an understanding of the people and places that create the fashion we wear; as well as the global impact of the garment industry.
Clarksville, TN – On a recent spring afternoon, Takuya Kanemitsu, a Tokyo-based artist and art professor, wandered through the Austin Peay State University Browning Building, looking for one of his paintings.
He finally found the massive, six-foot wide canvas on a wall next to the President’s Office, and Kanemitsu spent several quiet minutes that day reconnecting with the image of a pensive young woman surrounded by books.
“I was interested in the rhythm of the books,” he said, moving his hand slowly in front of the painting. “The composition, I thought, was interesting.”
Clarksville, TN – David Meador, a four-time golf national champion, once toyed with the idea of becoming a police officer. In the summer of 1966, the 18-year-old Meador worked part time as a police station radio operator, and one evening, he was invited to take a ride in a new police cruiser.
At some point during the night, the officer behind the wheel engaged in a high-speed pursuit of another vehicle, and he ended up crashing the new cruiser.
Austin Peay State University Department of Art presents “Sound”, an art exhibit at the Trahern Gallery
Clarksville, TN – Inviting museum-goers to use their ears as much as their eyes is quickly gaining traction in the art community. Much like using color on a physical canvas, sound artists use the noises that exist around us to fill space and grab the attention of the listener in a way no different than a sculpture, painting or mosaic.
Students at Austin Peay State University, as well as the community at large, will have an opportunity to explore this branch of contemporary art when the APSU Department of Art presents “SOUND”, an exhibition of sound art held at the APSU Trahern Gallery from January 20th-February 6th.

“I have to admit, I’ve become somewhat accustomed to Theta-Delta winning,” Joe Weber, director of library services at APSU, said.
