West Virginia University Institute of Technology (WVU Tech) will be displaying a Teacher’s Discovery Traveling Exhibit featuring the spectacular murals of Diego Rivera, considered a national treasure of Mexico. The campus will enjoy the giant reproductions during the week of October 21- October 25. Featuring the beautiful “Sunday Afternoon in Alameda Park,” the exhibit celebrates art, Spanish language, Mexican culture and history. The exhibit will be held in the Reserve Room of Vining Library (2nd Floor).
The exhibit also features a scene from a mural painted in the University at Chapingo in Mexico in 1926 as well as a wonderful selection, called The Flower Vendor from the series that featured calla lilies and native Mexicans.
WVU Tech is well known for its exceptional academic programs. The University was once again named to the top 100 Best Undergraduate Engineering Programs by U.S. News & World Report. The campus community includes students from 29 different countries, including Brazil, France, Colombia, Venezuela, Spain, Scotland, as far away as Australia, Malaysia, and India, and as close as Canada and Mexico.
As per tradition, Tech honors its international neighbors for their many contributions to the world. In this spirit of celebration and respect, the convocations committee and the Department of English, History & Creative Arts wish to invite all members of the Tech faculty, staff, students and the Greater Montgomery community to see the exhibit, which will open to the public on Monday, October 21 at 10am.
In the spring of 2014, WVU Tech anticipates hosting the next Teacher’s Discover Exhibit featuring artifacts and information about the Civil War.
