|The Alumni College class, which will coincide with Danville’s annual Great American Brass Band Festival (GABBF), gives alumni the opportunity to learn about the history of glass. Powell will talk about his own well-known pieces, as well as Centre’s place in the world of glass today.|
Powell will give glassblowing demonstrations in Centre’s hot glass studio in the Jones Visual Arts Center—and alumni will also have the chance to try it out for themselves.
Accommodations for the Alumni College will be in the A. Eugene Brockman Residential Commons, Centre’s newest residential facility. Made possible by a $15-million gift from the A. Eugene Brockman Charitable Trust of Bermuda, the 125-bed facility features townhouse-style apartments housing mainly juniors and seniors during the school year.
The cost of the Alumni College is $450 per individual or $825 per couple. For more information or to register for the Alumni College this summer, contact Megan Haake Milby ’03, director of alumni affairs.
