Seton Hill Hosts Annual Art-Entre Walk
Seton Hill University’s Visual and Performing Arts Program, CareerWorks, the Wukich Center for Entrepreneurial Opportunities and E-Magnify women’s business center, in cooperation with the University of Pittsburgh at Greensburg Visual Arts Society, hosted the Art-Entre Walk on Pennsylvania Avenue in Greensburg, Pa., on Friday, September 9.
The Art-Entre Walk was developed three years ago by Maureen Vissat, assistant professor, art history, Dana Elmendorf, assistant professor, art therapy, and Susan O’Neil, instructor, theatre.
More than 50 guests enjoyed this unique event and multiple prizes were awarded. Participants had the opportunity tot interact with local women entrepreneurs and create friendships. “Seton Hill’s mission of service is embraced through our third annual walk,” stated Vissat. “Our walk is a joyous time when our students can interact with different colleges, businesses and other students. And even after the event ends, we still are able to bring happiness to others by donating our funds to the Jeanette Salvation Army.”
One major event affiliated with the Art-Entre Walk was The Salvation Army Garbage Bag Gala. Students were in competition to develop the classiest, or trashiest, dresses made with only garbage bags and wild colors of duck tape. “We designed creative and unique garbage bag dresses while working as a team,” said Marlaina Miller, junior art education major. “We loved every minute of the show and Seton Hill students took home the ‘classiest’ dress prize.”
Seton Hill students were awarded free admission for all parts of this event. All proceeds raised were donated to the Jeanette Salvation Army.
