Austin Peay Sports Information Office

Austin Peay State University Sports - APSU - Governors - Lady GovsClarksville, TN – For nearly seven decades, Governors Stadium has served as the home of Austin Peay State University football and track and field teams. But nothing in those 68 years compares to the stadium transformation that occurred since the 2013 Governors football campaign ended.

A ceremonial demolition of Governors Stadium began following the November 19th contest against Southeast Missouri. Despite the coldest winter in recent time, including ice conditions that shut down the University for three days, the construction crew lost just one day of work.

Clarksville’s Customs House Museum and Cultural Center hosting Family Ties exhibit by Sher Fick in the Bruner Gallery

 

Clarksville's Customs House Museum and Cultural CenterClarksville, TN - The Bruner Gallery of the Customs House Museum greets visitors with a series of suspended “straight jackets”. Using vintage fabrics, hospital baby blankets, and a wedding dress as the textiles, these jackets date the phases of a woman’s life.

Surrounding walls at first glance appear to display whimsical pieces of children’s clothes and trinkets housed in floating Petri dishes. The playfulness of objects in Family Ties invites you in but the messages expressed are much deeper, if not much darker.
