Merrill Krabill: A Visual Reflection on Fear and Connection (C. Henry Smith Peace Lecture Exhibit)

The C. Henry Smith Peace Lecture, named for a former history professor at both Bluffton University and Goshen College, includes a research grant for the lecturer. The grant is awarded each year to a professor at a Mennonite college, who then presents the lecture at both Bluffton University and Goshen College.

A Visual Reflection on Fear and Connection is comprised of fourteen recent works in the series Earth and Sky. Part of his artist statement reads, "The pieces in the gallery are exploring connections between life and death, loss and redemption, beauty and sorrow. For a long time I have believed these pairs are more of a piece than unconnected opposites."

Merrill's presentation to the public will be held on Tuesday, January 22 at 7:00 p.m. in Rieth Recital Hall, adjacent to the Hershberger art gallery. A reception will follow.
