Marty's Message: TBA

Last week I explored the “125 Years of Higher Education in Stevens Point” exhibit on display at the Carlsten Art Gallery. It is a wonderfully curated history of programs, people and consequential happenings throughout our history.

Among the most interesting artifacts to me were those from the early days of domestic sciences and home economics–programing that still exists today as dietetics, family and consumer sciences and interior architecture. In particular, I enjoyed seeing a table setting replica of 1915 era Sims Cottage, a house used to give students actual practice in home management. Many of the pieces in this display are from our own College of Professional Studies collection.   
During my tour, I imagined seeing Bessie May Allen sitting in her rocking chair. Bessie May’s distinguished career, spanning 39 years, saw UWSP change its name from Stevens Point Normal School to Stevens Point Teacher College, Central State Teacher College and then to Wisconsin State College.

The show is running until Oct. 20 in the Carlsten Art Gallery, located on the second floor of the Noel Fine Arts Center. Stop by to see these items, the history of Stevie Pointer and more!
