The 150th anniversary time capsule contest committee has selected January’s winning entry. Emily Brickler’s entry of photos from Yo-Yo Ma’s and William Shatner’s visits to campus were chosen to go in one of the 3x3x3-inch boxes reserved for contest winners.
Emily Brickler, managing director of Leach Theatre, was awarded $19,952 in grant funding from the Missouri Arts Council (MAC) and the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) for the 2018-19 academic year.
When Leach Theatre reopens in August, patrons will notice a center aisle, railings and new seats. The theater, which closed June 25, is undergoing renovations. Plans call for new, wider seats with backs that provide lumbar support.
