Aug. 10, 2012 - PRLog -- Milwaukee, Wis., August 9, 2012 – Alfons Gallery will host a roundtable discussion around the theme “Voices Through Art: Educational Empowerment” Sunday, August 26 from 1-3pm in St. Joseph Hall, 1501 S. Layton Blvd., Milwaukee.  

School Sisters of St. Francis and Alverno College faculty will share personal reflections about their engagement in art education and the growth of Alverno College’s art program.  The August 26 program includes a Q &A with the roundtable participants, a viewing of the exhibition, “Artists, Art and Empowering: School Sisters of St. Francis and Alverno College Faculty” celebrating Alverno’s 125th anniversary, as well as a tour of the historic St. Joseph Chapel.

“This roundtable gives voice to the current exhibition of artists who have worked to empower students through their role as art educators,” noted Valerie J. Christell, director/curator of Alfons Gallery and Adjunct Professor at Alverno.  “And it provides a unique opportunity to engage in a discussion of the changing needs of students in our increasingly fast-paced, technological society.”
