CBC Arts Announces it’s May Events

With only two months remaining before the summer break, the academic year of events at Columbia Basin College is winding down. The CBC Arts Center staff appreciates your patronage throughout this season.

This month brings another in the series of Community Lectures at the Richland Public Library. On May 18 at 7 p.m., Michelle Liu will speak on the topic “What Laughter Tells Us: Asian Americans, Comedy, and Belonging.” While everyone finds different things funny, we all have experienced laughter. And what we find funny shapes how we interconnect. Through clips of Asian American stand-up comedians, Professor Liu explores how humor can change the patterns of belonging that everyone in the United States has inherited.

Between May 8 and June 8, the popular CBC Juried Student Exhibition will be on display in the Esvelt Gallery. The awards ceremony will be on May 11 beginning at 6 p.m. This annual show gives students a chance to display their work in a juried and professionally installed exhibition. The Student Exhibition celebrates the talent of Columbia Basin College students in painting, drawing, illustration, digital media, photography, 2-D design, 3-D design, ceramics and sculpture.
