World War II Exhibit, "Over Here and Over There: Georgia and Georgians in World War II" (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

The travelling panel exhibit, "Over Here and Over There: Georgia and Georgians in World War II" will be on display at UWG's Ingram Library from October 13 through December 7.  There is no admission fee.  The exhibit will include displays of artifacts from local collectors of World War II memorabilia.  Three programs will be presented in conjunction with the exhibit.

"Over Here and Over There" commemorates the contribution of Georgia and Georgians to the fight to win World War II, the bloodiest and most globally sweeping conflict in human history.  Georgians, along with others throughout the nation, served in multiple ways -- as soldiers, as workers producing the materiel needed to wage war, and as citizens implementing patriotic initiatives within their homes and communities.  All were "soldiers" bound together in pursuit of "one great cause."

"Over Here and Over There" was created by the Bandy Heritage Center for Northwest Georgia, Dalton State College, and the Northeast Georgia History Center at Brenau University.  The exhibit is sponsored by the Ingram Library's Penelope Melson Society and is supported by the Carroll EMC Foundation, the Georgia Humanities Council, and the National Endowment for the Humanities, and through appropriations from the Georgia General Assembly.

Environmental Awareness Week (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

UWG'S School of the Arts is sponsoring an Environmental Awareness Week, October 24 through November 1.

See the full Schedule of Events.

The week kicks off with visiting artist Scott Wade, the so-called Dirty Car Artist, who creates fantastic images on the windows of dirty, dusty cars. Wade will be performing two times during the week—Friday, October 24, at the Carrollton High School Football Game and Monday, October 27, on campus. (Look for the Nissan Leaf around the Campus Center and a guy covering it in dirt.) He joins us through a collaboration with the Ingram Library and Phi Kappa Phi.

Also, documentary filmmaker Zach Godschall will be on campus on Tuesday, October 28, for a screening of his fabulous Water Like Stone, which chronicles the lives of fishermen in southern Louisiana, as climate change alters their landscape and livelihood. Godschall joins us as part of the inaugural Stone Visiting Artist Series, thanks to the generosity of local patrons Andrea and Michael Stone.

Wednesday, October 29, sees painter/photographer/filmmaker Kim Anno arrive on campus for a screening of some of her latest video work. Anno is intensely interested in climate change, water conservation, and the role of art in ongoing environmental discourse.

Then, in collaboration with the Department of Biology, the Honors College, Risk Management, and the Sustainability Council, we are hosting the first-ever plastic bottle sculpture contest, Thursday, October 30, by the Campus Center. That's right: thousands of bottles will be at the ready by the Campus Center for a battle to create the most impressive sculpture. Come watch teams compete to make elaborate sculptures out of recycled plastic bottles.

The week concludes with our campus's yearly Interdisciplinary Conference (hosted by Foreign Languages and Literatures) and Dean Hendricks' Humanities Symposium, both of which center on the confluence of Humanities and climate change, art and science, worlds and words. The conference runs from Thursday, October 30, to Saturday, November 1.

World War II Exhibit, "Over Here and Over There: Georgia and Georgians in World War II" (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

The travelling panel exhibit, "Over Here and Over There: Georgia and Georgians in World War II" will be on display at UWG's Ingram Library from October 13 through December 7.  There is no admission fee.  The exhibit will include displays of artifacts from local collectors of World War II memorabilia.  Three programs will be presented in conjunction with the exhibit.

"Over Here and Over There" commemorates the contribution of Georgia and Georgians to the fight to win World War II, the bloodiest and most globally sweeping conflict in human history.  Georgians, along with others throughout the nation, served in multiple ways -- as soldiers, as workers producing the materiel needed to wage war, and as citizens implementing patriotic initiatives within their homes and communities.  All were "soldiers" bound together in pursuit of "one great cause."

"Over Here and Over There" was created by the Bandy Heritage Center for Northwest Georgia, Dalton State College, and the Northeast Georgia History Center at Brenau University.  The exhibit is sponsored by the Ingram Library's Penelope Melson Society and is supported by the Carroll EMC Foundation, the Georgia Humanities Council, and the National Endowment for the Humanities, and through appropriations from the Georgia General Assembly.
