Cupcakes and music on the Colonnade will herald the party celebrating the 15th anniversary of the Zell B. Miller Learning Center Sept. 20.
Lee Karen Stow, a UK documentary photographer, will speak on her "Poppies" project Nov. 12 at 6 pm at the University of Georgia Richard B. Russell Building Special Collections Libraries.
“Poppies: Women, War, Peace” remembers women in times of war, from the First World War to the present day. It combines a portrait series of women whose lives have been affected by war with a botanical series of the red ‘Flanders Fields’ poppy. For the red poppy, despite its delicate appearance, is able to generate new life when everything else has been destroyed.
A reception will follow Stow's talk. The exhibit will be on display through Dec. 14.
The talk is co-sponsored by the Willson Center for Humanities and Arts, the Lucy Hargrett Draper Center and Archives for the Study of the Rights of Women in History and Law, and the UGA Institute for Women's Studies.
When: Tuesday, September 25th, 5:30-6:30PM
Where: Room 258, Richard B. Russell Building Special Collections Libraries
