On Saturday, April 23, 2016 from 2:00-4:00 p.m., E. C. Glass High School will host the annual Senior Art Show and Open House for the ever-expanding E. C. Glass art collection.
This has become a much anticipated annual event, celebrating the remarkable talents of the artists in the senior class. Their works will be displayed in the Marie Waller Lecture Hall. Also on display will be a sneak-peak at the colorful piano with its student originated design. In addition, the school will be open for self-guided tours of the school’s outstanding art collection permanently hanging throughout the building. There are a number of new acquisitions, displays and exhibitions this year. The lower lobby of the auditorium, home of the Air Force Junior ROTC, has been completely re-purposed to feature a student-painted mural of aircraft history, an impressive hall of fame exhibit of Lynchburg Pioneers in Aviation and Aerospace, and a large, handsome display case of state and national trophies won by the students in recent years. In the front lobby of the school are the four recently unveiled display cases celebrating African-American history at E. C. Glass. Other new acquisitions are in the athletic wing of the school, in the gymnasium hallway, and in McCue Gym, where many banners celebrating the school state titles have recently been hung. Also newly featured is a 75-year-old E. C. Glass blanket that was used by the Glass basketball teams under the legendary Coach Jimmie Bryan.
The event is open to the public at no charge.
