Short Takes: Audition notices; women's history month event; Huntington art students recognized

Thursday, March 20, 2014 - 12:01 am

Women’s History Month event

Three Rivers Art Center for Kids (TRACK) and IPFW Office of Diversity and Multicultural Affairs are planning a community event for Women's History Month, “An Evening of Cultural Expression.” The evening includes speakers, live music, dance and theater. It's free and open to the public with refreshments. The event is 7-9 p.m. March 27 in the International Ballroom in the Walb Union at IPFW, 2101 Coliseum Blvd. E.

Maleah Heck will present the keynote address on “Generations of Women in My Family” with Randi Shepherd from Medway, Ohio, on videotape. Shepherd has fought for six years for Destiny's Law, named after her daughter, who was abused as a baby. The law would make tougher sentences for abusers.

The mission of TRACK is to use art to combat child abuse. Mimi Burns and the Fort Wayne Dance Collective will premiere the dance “To Be on Track,” written by TRACK's Patty Hunter and the play “Angel Fire,” written by TRACK founder Terry Doran.

Students honored

Huntington University visual arts students recently showcased the best of their work from the year and were recognized at the 24th annual Juried Student Art Exhibit held in the Robert E. Wilson Gallery on campus. The show is on display until March 27.
