LEWISTON, Idaho – Lewis-Clark State College will hold LC Spirit Days on Sept. 29-30, including two events that are free and open to the public.
The Lewis-Clark State Center for Arts & History will open its exhibit “Artwalk: 10-Year Retrospective” on Sept. 30. The Center, which is located at 415 Main St. in Lewiston, is celebrating featured artwork from artists who have participated in the annual Lewiston Downtown Artwalk in the last 10 years. The gallery at the Center is open noon-4 p.m. Monday-Friday each week and the exhibit will run through Dec. 11.
The second event is a Zoom presentation by LC State institutional historian Steve Branting on “Warriors Under Foreign Banners” at 4-5 p.m., also on Sept. 30. American cemeteries honor U.S. service veterans with American flags on Memorial Day and Veterans Day, but American cemeteries also are the resting places for veterans of foreign armies. Branting’s presentation will tell the stories of eight men who experienced combat under other flags and then made their way to live in the Lewis-Clark Valley.
Pre-registration for the Zoom event is required. To pre-register, visit www.lcsc.edu/spirit-days and click on the word “Register” where the event is listed.
The remaining events for Spirit Week are only for students and employees of the college.
LC usually holds Spirit Days during its fall Homecoming Week, but because no athletic events can be held until at least Dec. 1 following Cascade Collegiate Conference COVID-19 guidelines, Homecoming Week will not take place in 2020.
