Celebration of Women in the Arts

“A Celebration of Women in the Arts” will be held Friday, April 19 from 4-6 p.m. in the Theatre and Dance Building’s Studio 115 on The University of Southern Mississippi’s (USM) Hattiesburg campus. This event will feature performances by dancers and readings by poets and writers. Photos, paintings, and sculptures will also be displayed in the rehearsal hall across from Studio 115 for visitors to view.

The event will also feature a tribute to longtime USM Professor of Political Science Dr. Kate Greene, a generous supporter of artistic endeavors by women at USM and active member of the University’s Committee on Services and Resources for Women (CSRW) who is retiring at the end of this academic year.  Dr. Greene has been a member of the USM Faculty since 1989.

Dr. Greene says she intends to continue her support of the CSRW following retirement, including its Marjorie Spruill Women’s History Month Book Drive, which honors former USM Professor of History Dr. Marjorie Spruill. This year, the CSRW delivered more than 70 books to students at the Hattiesburg Public School District’s Woodley Elementary School.

"I am thrilled that the CSRW has allowed me to produce the 2nd edition of this event (A Celebration of Women in the Arts) before my retirement in June,” Dr. Greene said. “We will be showcasing students, staff, faculty and community members who provide so much to the arts here at USM and in Hattiesburg.”
