Raudelunas Revival brings 70s art collective back to life

The long-awaited Raudelunas Revival was a huge hit. The “legendary radical 1970s Tuscaloosa intermedia arts collective” made a huge come-back with a retrospective exhibition in the Ferguson Student Center Gallery and a performance in the Ferg Theatre featuring now internationally acclaimed violist LADONNA SMITH (former art student and apprentice to UA ceramics professor FRANK ENGLE), internationally acclaimed guitarist and UA alumnus DAVEY WILLIAMS and harpist/composer and UA art alumnus ANNE LEBARON. Former art student and religious studies major CRAIG NUTT; JANICE HATHAWAY, BFA 1973, MFA 1975; FLETCHER PAUL HAYES (BFA 1973, MA 1974); and LEAH ALFORD (art history minor 1971), along with several other UA alumni, were founding members and helped put together the exhibition organized by radio announcer and music historian Lee Shook, Jr.[Sg13]
