Photo of the Week!

From the Baptist Female University Catalogue, 1899-1900:  “The Art Department is accommodated in a large and beautifully adapted Studio on the fourth floor of the Main Building. It is furnished with models and such artistic material as is necessary for art work, and is well lighted with large windows and sky-lights sloping to the north.”

One hundred years later, Professor of Art Jane Terry photographed contemporary art students in Gaddy-Hamrick, evoking the spirit of the first studio.
