On Friday, March 13th, 2015, students from ARH: 112, History of Renaissance to Modern Art, will host an Art History Exhibition featuring artist Alvin Smith. The event will coincide with Flint’s March Artwalk.

Members of the campus and community are invited to join the students for an evening of inspiration. Says Dr. Sarah Lippert, Program Coordinator for Visual Arts at UM-Flint, “Artist Alvin Smith is a talented communicator about the African-American experience. Come see works that are both provocative and engaging.”

The event will feature a reception with a silent auction, refreshments, door prizes, and more. The evening is presented free of charge and is open to the public. It is sponsored by the College of Arts and Sciences’ Department of Communication & Visual Arts with support by University Outreach through a Civic Engagement grant.
