So where can I go check out the Laredo Community College (LCC) student art show?? Where, oh where?
Are you asking why I am asking?
Apparently the Art Gallery received a wallop of a smack from the sky. Lightening struck this past weekend and destroyed part of the roof and unfortunately the gallery was hosting the student art show at the time so… art pieces are still missing. Maybe the show had some heavy metal jewelry displayed in just the right configuration to attract the electricity???
Who knows – if only TAMIU were as generous with their new building as this Christian Church (who opened their doors to their Muslim brothers and sisters while their mosque was finished – wish all of us were more compassionate), the student show could go on.
I hear from my friend whose piece is missing that the art show will be moved to the Yeary Library at LCC. I also hear from my trustee friend that it was one of the buildings slated for renovation – back to its former glory and set up to be one of the sites for a possible future historic walking tour. I can’t wait to see some of these beautiful historic buildings given some TLC – maybe even an LCC ghost walk, hahaha… ok, that is only my taste.
