The South Texas College Library Art Gallery continues its monthly spring semester series, “Parallels”, with a traveling exhibit on the Civil War and its impact on the border region.

South Texas College’s Library Art Gallery and History department proudly presents UTRGV’s CHAPS traveling exhibit “War & Peace on the Rio Grande, 1861-1867” at STC’s Mid-Valley Library, which began on April 5, and will be on view until June 30. The Mid-Valley Campus Library Art Gallery is located at 400 N. Border in Weslaco.

Author Marianne Monson is slated to speak on her book “Women of the Blue and Gray: True Civil War Stories of Mothers, Medics, Soldiers, and Spies,” on April 27 at 3 p.m., covering those diverse women who defied norms to participate in the war as abolitionists, teachers, and soldiers.

Advanced registration for that webinar can be found at https://southtexascollege.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_PKUIHhiYTJKaYobH1G034w

The Parallel series has been developed to highlight the connections between seemingly unconnected disciplines—Mathematics, AEDT, History, and Science– with Art.
All events are free and open to the public.

The South Texas College Library Art Gallery Program organizes exhibitions and educational programs to engage student understanding of art and its role in culture, support the academic curriculum, and inspire continued education through direct engagement with artists, scholars, and original works of art.
