“Faculty shows are traditional at colleges,” said Griffin, “because the students really like to see what the professors do, what their art looks like, and whether they want to take their class based on their artwork.”

The exhibit features the work of the following City College professors: Frank Zamora, Chris Daubert,

FLC's ‘Spring Awakening’ must-see finale 4/13

The Folsom Lake College Falcon’s Eye Theatre production of “Spring Awakening” at the Harris Center for the Arts, however, is excellent.

Lead actors Elio Gutierrez and Holly Wilson, as Melchior and Wendla, expertly carry this production based on a controversial late-19th century German play about teenagers discovering their sexuality and the painful truths about abortion, child abuse and suicide.
