Diners will learn more about “Lady in Red and Black,” a web-based exhibit inspired by Barbara Cole Peters. The exhibit was produced by an experiential learning team through the NIU Digital Convergence Lab.

In spring 2011, the Digital Convergence Lab partnered with faculty, staff and students on a project that created an interactive, online exhibition of vintage fashions that explores NIU’s history and culture in the 20th century. The team included five undergraduate and graduate students with backgrounds in art and educational technology.

The PCSW luncheon will take place from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Chandelier Room of Adams Hall.

Reservations are required by Monday, Oct. 10.
