Photo exhibit highlights Native American Indian Month

Released: 11/09/2004

An LSU Alexandria student’s photographs of Native American dancing are featured at the University Gallery through Nov. 19 as part of Native American Indian Heritage Month. The Gallery is located in the West Wing of the Student Center near the bookstore. Lisa Malmay of Alexandria said she shot the photographs as part of an advanced-level photography class taught by Roy deVille, professor of fine arts and director of the University Art Gallery. Most of her photographs were taken at a recent Pow Wow on the LSU Baton Rouge campus, sponsored by the Native American Student Association. Malmay is a member of the Choctaw Apache tribe of Ebarb, so she has a special interested in the Native American culture. The art display coincides with President Bush’s proclamation of November 2004 as National American Indian Heritage Month. The University Art Gallery features various works from students on campus. It is open on weekdays from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
