Cadets in Adjunct Professor Tiffany Silverman's art history class are learning firsthand about the art world as they open the institution's first cadet-curated exhibition in the Capers Hall Lobby.

The “Carolina On My Mind” exhibit opens from 1 to 2:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 23 during Parents' Weekend and will run through Dec. 4. It is open to the public.

“Professor Silverman and her students are making the arts an ever more integral part of The Citadel experience,” said Bo Moore, dean of the School of Humanities and Social Sciences. “In the process they are also enriching the cultural life of the South Carolina Lowcountry.”

Focused on painted interpretations of the familiar streets, glorious sunsets, and mysterious marshlands of the South Carolina Lowcountry, the show features works by local artists such as Johnson Hagood, Lese Corrigan, Gary Grier, Christopher Murphy, Amelia Rose Smith, and Gordon Nicholson.

Capers Hall is located at the Lesesne Gate off Moultrie Street and at the main entrance to campus.

The exhibit was made possible through support from The Citadel Foundation, the Gibbes Museum of Art and the School of Humanities and Social Sciences.
