“The Last Picture Show” showing at The
Centre through May 10
College Graphic Design students are presenting an art
showing at The Centre now through early May. The exhibit is
free and open to the public and features more than 90 pieces
of work produced by current students.
The exhibit is titled "The Last Picture
Show" since it was the last art show staged in Room 133.

exhibit through May 10. The show is open for viewing from 10
a.m.-5 p.m. weekdays.
