New Education in Zion exhibit to open Wednesday


The Education in Zion Gallery will open its newest exhibit, “Y-Serve: Come Serve with Me,” on Wednesday, Sept. 11 at 3 p.m. in the Joseph F. Smith Building.

The new exhibit will replace “Cosmo: The Credentials of a Cougar” at the base of the spiral staircase in the JFSB. The new Y-Serve exhibit is co-sponsored by the Education in Zion Gallery and the Center for Service and Learning.

According to a press release by Education in Zion, the purpose of this photo exhibition is to show service opportunities available to BYU students. This exhibit also recognizes and gives perspective to service as one of the four aims of a BYU education.

“We hope the exhibit, first, shows the tradition of service at BYU, and second, increases awareness of the types and availability of service opportunities that exist on campus,” said Casey Peterson, director of the Center for Service and Learning.

Festivities will begin in B-192 JFSB with three lectures by BYU faculty members. Speakers for this event are David Nelson, School of Family Life, Eva Witesman, Public Management, and Casey Peterson, Center for Service and Learning. Following their remarks guests are invited to see the exhibit and participate in a service activity.

This is a free event for anyone interested. The first 100 guests will enjoy “Service Bars” provided by BYU Dining Services. The exhibit will be open until 9 p.m. on Wednesdays.
