A highlight of the exhibit is three works by William H. Ealer, who was an assistant professor of architecture and the college's longest-serving faculty member when he died Feb. 14. The works two watercolor paintings and an architectural rendering were bequeathed to the college by Ealer's estate and will be hung in a permanent location on campus after the exhibit closes.
