6:00 p.m., March 7, 2003--Delaware Tourism Office staff and volunteers from the Greater Wilmington Convention & Visitors Bureau visited campus Friday, March 7, to tour “The Magnificent Seven: Hayward Oubre’s Students—From the Paul R.

The exhibition of approximately 40 works includes paintings, drawings, sculpture, photographs, prints and mixed media by Oubre, then an art professor at Alabama State College (now University) and his students William Anderson, Herman Bailey, Arthur Britt, Floyd Coleman, John Feagin, Paul Gary and Harper T. Phillips.

The special Friday visit gave the guests a chance to learn more about UD’s Paul Jones Collection and how they might include it as a point of pride in the First State.

A campus community reception for “The Magnificent Seven” will be held from 5:30-7:30 p.m., Wednesday, March 19, at the gallery.

For more information on the exhibition and the Jones Collection, contact curator Amalia Amaki, assistant professor of Black American Studies at UD, at 831-4075 or via e-mail at [amaki@udel.edu].
