Austin Peay State University students discover work from two major artists in University’s collection

 

Austin Peay State University (APSU)

Austin Peay State University - APSUClarksville, TN – As Austin Peay State University (APSU) freshman Sarah Potter combed through the University’s art collection in early February, she came across a photo of a man sitting on a rock, his back to the camera.

“I was looking for personality, for stories,” Potter, who’s curating an exhibit for the walls of Human Resources in the Browning Administration Building, said. “I liked it, so I set it aside with the other photographs.”

Austin Peay State University Art Students Sarah Potter and Katherine Tolleson hold their discoveries. Potter is holding a Philippe Halsman photo print of Winston Churchill, and Tolleson is holding a drypoint by Alphonse Legros.

APSU installs new permanent sculpture “The Cardboard Kids”

 

Austin Peay State University - APSUClarksville, TN –  To pay tribute to a student population at the very heart of Austin Peay State University’s (APSU) mission, work recently began on a permanent art installation on the University campus, titled “The Cardboard Kids: Monument to the Non-Traditional Student.”

Non-traditional students come in all shapes, sizes and backgrounds. For some, marriage and a family changed their priorities, while others may have enlisted in the military or simply decided a four-year college wasn’t right for them after graduating high school.
