CAH receives grant for college’s 125th anniversary exhibit

LEWISTON, Idaho – The Lewis-Clark State College Center for Arts & History has received a $2,500 grant from the Idaho Humanities Council for an upcoming exhibit, “Town & Gown” 125 years of LCSC Campus and Community – an exhibit of celebration.” The exhibit will run Sept. 6-Oct. 27 at the Center, located at 415 Main St.

The exhibit examines the relationship the college has fostered with the Lewiston-Clarkston community over the course of the institution’s 125-year history. Activities include a retrospective of the various roles community members have played in support of LCSC through patronage, support of athletic and artistic events, scholarships for students, and political support during tumultuous state funding cycles. Accompanying programming consists of a series of lectures, film and panels, which will examine the stories of community patronage within the themes outlined throughout the exhibit.

Interactive programs will encourage the community to share their own memories and artifacts of the college. The LCSC Center for Arts & History welcomes memorabilia and photographs from the community through the end of July. Items can be brought to the Center for consideration during office hours, 8 a.m.-5 p.m. on Monday-Friday, or photos of memorabilia items can be emailed to [email protected].

The exhibit is sponsored by LCSC Community Programs and grant funding from Idaho Humanities Council and US Bank.

The Center is open Monday-Saturday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. and features free admission but donations are welcome.
