KU events this week: A whole lotta commencement, plus student art projects on display


This is the space where we usually let you know what's going on at KU this week. But it's finals week at KU, and aside from tests the schedule is pretty light — well, except for the 40 or so commencement-related events going on starting tomorrow.

If you're involved with any of those, though, you likely already know about it (I hope so, anyway).

As for the big KU commencement ceremony, it's set for 10:30 a.m. Sunday. You can click that link to see scheduling details — and the procedure for announcing weather-related delays, if needed. (The National Weather Service is calling for likely showers and thunderstorms Sunday as of Wednesday morning.) I'll be there, so if you see a guy wandering around with a notepad, say hi.

One event that I do have to share: Seniors in KU's department of visual art will exhibit some of their artwork starting Friday in the Art and Design Building on campus. The work will range from ceramics to painting to textiles to other media. The display will open with a reception (free for the public) from 7:30 to 9 p.m. Friday in the gallery and in room 421 of the Art and Design Building, and it will remain open from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. every day from Saturday through Tuesday.

If I missed anything else going on, beyond the avalanche of graduation-related festivities, add it in the comments below. And get those KU news tips to merickson@ljworld.com (bonus points if you submit them in the form of ceramics, paitings or textiles).
