“Vinyl Revival,” a collection of vinyl records “with a sense of style,” goes on exhibit Feb. 28 at Mississippi State.
Free and open to all through March 21, the showing in the second-floor Colvard Student Union Art Gallery is a collaboration between the university’s student activities office and campus Music Maker Productions.
The submission of additional records by members of the public is being encouraged, said Amelia Treptow, assistant director for student activities.
Friday [Feb. 21] is the submission deadline, with forms available online at www.msuconcerts.com or for pick-up at the Center for Student Activities, Union Suite 314.
Also free to all, a reception for the show will held 4-6 p.m. March 6 at the gallery.
Treptow said the solicitation of individual contributions is a way for persons of all ages to express their love for music.
“Music is often thought of as an auditory art, but it can also be a very visual art form,” she said. “The exhibit aims to express this visual art through the display of classic and modern vinyl records and sleeves.”
Records must be delivered to the Center for Student Activities, with each piece labeled exactly as listed on the entry card. The contributions may not be withdrawn before the close of the exhibition, and all pieces must be picked up between 8 a.m.-5 p.m. March 26-28.
Gallery hours are 8 a.m.-10 p.m. Monday-Friday, and 10 a.m.-10 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
