Eastern Michigan University to open new exhibit: Eastern Michigan University and War - Campus. Conflict. Critical Thought.

YPSILANTI --  Eastern Michigan University will open a new exhibit in the McKenny Gallery titled "Eastern Michigan University and War -- Campus. Conflict. Critical Thought." 

The exhibit opens on Thursday, April 12, with a formal ribbon cutting event at 3 p.m. 

From concept development to exhibit execution, a group of EMU students in the school’s historic preservation program were charged with creating an intellectually stimulating display for the gallery, utilizing the University Archives as their starting point. The project was led by Associate Professor of Geography and Geology, Nancy Bryk. 

The McKenny Gallery, located in the historic McKenny Hall building, debuted in 2014.
