UPSIDE DOWN: A Student Exhibition

Permanent Exhibit

Upside Down is curated by students in the Southeast Center of Photographic Studies at Daytona State College. It is the second annual exhibit at the Gary R. Libby Gallery in the News-Journal Center. Libby's philanthropic pursuits at the NJC focus on providing opportunities for students to work alongside professionals from the museum and photography fields, and to engage these fields through the curation and installation of a photography exhibition.

Libby also generously supports DSC photography students through the Gary R. Libby Curatorship, a scholarship through the Daytona State College Foundation.

The Glass Menagerie

Author: Tennessee Williams

Amanda Wingfield is a faded remnant of Southern gentility who now lives in a dingy St. Louis apartment with her son, Tom, and her daughter, Laura, who has a physical handicap and debilitat-ing shyness. The father has left home; Tom supports his mother and sister with a shoe-factory job he finds unbearable. When Amanda convinces Tom to bring home from his workplace a “gentleman caller” for Laura, the illusions that Tom, Amanda, and Laura have each created in order to make life bearable collapse about them.

THE GLASS MENAGERIE is presented by arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc. on behalf of The University of the South, Sewanee, Tennessee.

February 24-26, 7:30 p.m.

She Loves Me

Author: Joe Masteroff

Set in a 1930s European perfumery, we meet shop clerks, Amalia and Georg, who, more often than not, don't see eye to eye. After both respond to a "lonely hearts advertisement" in the newspa-per, they now live for the love letters that they exchange, but the identity of their admirers remains unknown.

SHE LOVES ME is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI).
