From December 2 through February 1, Dominican College is hosting An African Exhibit.
Original artworks and Ugandan wildlife photos on canvas will be displayed in the Sullivan Library of Rosary Hall and will be offered for sale. Proceeds will benefit children in Ugandan primary schools by providing low-cost, high-impact XO computers – designed by MIT for the One Laptop per Child program. XO computers are delivered to children in developing countries by volunteers.
There will be an opening reception for the exhibition on December 2 from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. in the Sullivan Library. Dr. Joanne Clemente, Academic Technology Administrator at Dominican College, who has volunteered in Uganda for the past 3 years, will be present to talk about her travels. She will present on the need for the computers and give a demonstration of how they work. Information about becoming a volunteer on one of these trips will be provided as will information on how to sponsor a professor to travel through the Adopt-a-Prof program, for those community members who would like to volunteer but are unable to.
