Art museum visits urged
By Lori Kent
For The Print
When was the last time you
saw an art show? Or,-have you
ever been to an art show? Well,
there’s a lot of art out there to
be seen and admired.
Being an art major, I’ve
come to appreciate many dif­
ferent forms of art that I would
probably have never been ex­
posed to if I had not chosen
fine arts as my major. Now I’m
glad that I have had a chance
to see some of the works of art
made available to us. I feel
others should take advantage

of the opportunities there are to
view art. There are many art
exhibits and museums around
to visit, the Portland Art
Museum, Contemporary Crafts
Gallery, frequent shows in
schools, fairs, why, from time
to time, there are even exhibits
in our parks .
I recently drug my boyfriend
to a show at the Portland Art
Museum and to his surprise, he
really enjoyed it. He saw some
things he liked, some things he
didn’t like, but he had a nice
time and plans on attending
more in the future. You don’t
have to like everything you
see, but remember, it’s easy to
be critical. Not all art is good
something without a fair trial.
College worth new expansion
. With the increase in enrollment, it’s
about time we expanded a little bit and
made some breathing room.
Already, the desperately needed science
building is on its way to completion. Soon a
new industrial-occupational center will be
built, along with a learning resource center
and a new performing arts center, if funds
are available over the next five years.
A long-range planning committee has
been formed to assess the needs and
smooth out the details. All in all, it will still
cost money.
This college is worth it. An institution
can’t do a very good job if its facilities are
inadequate. Improvements must be made.
People are demanding it by just enrolling.
All of the above will be completed within
six years. That’s a long time to wait, but
each year puts us closer to becoming a little
more valuable to the community.
Just as a kid needs a new pair of shoes
because his feet are growing, so the College
needs new facilities for the growing number
of people entering its doors.
If you have any interesting ideas you
would like the long-range planning commit-
