Glenville State University’s 150th Anniversary Celebration Continues with Gallery Exhibit

GLENVILLE, WV – Glenville State University will be hosting an exhibit highlighting and honoring the 150-year history of the institution. The exhibit – which includes photographs and historic artifacts – is entitled “150 Years of a Changing Landscape: Glenville Normal School to Glenville State University.”

The exhibit is currently on display in the Spears Gallery inside the Fine Arts Center. The gallery is open Monday-Friday from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. and one hour before all Glenville State musical performances in the Fine Arts Center. A closing reception for the exhibit is planned for Friday, October 14 from 4:00-6:00 p.m. The reception coincides with Glenville’s fall homecoming festivities and is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served.

“The exhibit documents the 150 years of Glenville State. It has both artifacts and photographs from different eras throughout our history. Examples of degrees, transportation, athletics, and how the overall landscape has changed are all part of this exhibit. We hope this small acknowledgment of our rich 150 years helps visitors understand where we have come from, where we are, and where we are going,” said Jason Gum, Glenville State University Library Director and Archivist. Gum curated the exhibit with assistance from the Department of Fine Arts and the Marketing and Public Relations Office.

Additionally, the October 14 reception will serve as the formal unveiling of the Emeriti Faculty Wall that is also inside the Fine Arts Center. The wall features a photograph of each individual who has been bestowed with professor emeritus status at Glenville State through the years. Currently, 81 former faculty members are part of the display.

The exhibit is dedicated to the Glenville State’s late First Lady, Virginia “Gigi” Manchin. Mrs. Manchin passed away in July.

For more information about the exhibit, contact Gum at Jason.Gum@glenville.edu.
