Road-wary Lady Govs continue treacherous road trip with visit to inhospitable Murray State


APSU Governors LogoFresh off a disappointing loss in the first game of its current road trip, Austin Peay women’s basketball team will have little time to regroup before visiting Murray State in a 5:15 p.m., Saturday contest at the Regional Special Events Center.

Austin Peay has found success infrequently away from the Dunn Center this season, winning two of its 10 true road games this season, including Thursday’s 79-70 loss at Tennessee Martin. However, the Lady Govs will have to shake their road woes as four of their remaining six regular-season games will be away from the Dunn Center.

The Lady Govs also will have to get off to a better start than they have in their last two outings. Austin Peay has trailed by more than 20 points in the first half of its latest two losses. The offense has sputtered in the opening half, making just 33.3 percent from the field in both outings. «Read the rest of this article»

Independent Film “Visual Acoustics” to be shown Saturday at APSU


The Austin Peay State University Center of Excellence for the Creative Arts and the Customs House Museum will present the independent film “Visual Acoustics: The Modernism of Julius Schulman” at 2 p.m., Feb. 6, in the Clement Auditorium on the APSU campus. Following the film, audience members will be able to ask questions of the director, Eric Bricker. This event, which is part of The Southern Circuit Tour of Independent Filmmakers, is free for Austin Peay students with an ID and $2 at the door for the general public.

Narrated by Dustin Hoffman, “Visual Acoustics” explores the monumental career of architectural photographer Julius Shulman who died on July 15, 2009, at the age of 99. Populating his photos with human models and striking landscapes, Shulman combined the organic with the synthetic, melding nature with revolutionary urban design. The resulting images helped to shape the careers of some of the greatest architects of the 20th Century, with Shulman documenting the work of Richard Neutra, Rudolph Schindler, Pierre Koening, John Lautner, and many others.
