The College of Arts, Education, and Sciences at the University of Louisiana Monroe is hosting the Spring 2019 Art Crawl at several campus locations on Thursday, Feb. 28, from 5-7 p.m. The exhibition in the CAES Dean’s Conference Room will honor ULM’s 50th anniversary as a university.
Admission is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be provided.

A showcase of ULM’s talented students, faculty, staff, and alumni will be on display throughout the crawl. The Dean’s Conference Room will host an exhibition featuring historic photographs, artworks and creative writing, commemorating 2019 as ULM’s 50th anniversary of being designated as a university. The show in The Walker Gallery features the ULM Art Program’s student and faculty work, including paintings, pottery, sculpture, prints and photographs. In addition, Bry Gallery will display the 26th Annual Jr./Sr. High School Art Competition and Awards Ceremony. The senior art students’ studios in Stubbs Hall will be open so that visitors can meet the artists and observe their works in progress.
The College of Arts, Education, and Sciences hopes to enrich the community by giving the opportunity for the community to walk through campus and appreciate the work of each artist. Dr. Joni Henry Noble, Professor in ULM’s School of Visual and Performing Arts, recognizes the students’ accomplishments.
“I am so proud of our ULM art majors and all of their efforts to curate and operate Walker Gallery. I hope everyone can attend our ULM Art Crawl and meet these talented artists. In addition, we will be hosting our 26th Annual High School Competition in Bry Gallery. Awards and scholarships will be given out at 6 p.m. that evening. This is one of the most exciting and well-attended events that we host every year. The high school students are always so excited to be recognized and they are so talented,” Noble said.
