McClure/Switzer Marble Gallery and Scalia Criminal Justice Institute dedications Wednesday at ASUMH

Two dedication ceremonies will be held in the Vada Sheid Community Development Center (The Sheid) Wednesday evening, April 19, prior to the performance of Cinderella by the Russian National Ballet Theatre at Arkansas State University-Mountain Home (ASUMH).

1. At 6:00 p.m., Dr. Robin Myers, Chancellor of ASUMH, will recognize the generous gift of 34 marble sculptures and pedestals by Jim McClure and Ron Switzer with the dedication of the 19th Century European Grand Tour Marble Gallery. The sculpture gallery is located on the second floor of the Vada Sheid Community Development Center. The classical statues represent Greek and Roman historical figures, gods and goddesses, as well as biblical characters. The dedication will take place on the second floor of The Sheid.

2. At 7:00 p.m. in the Coulter Performing Arts Center, Dr. Myers will introduce John Scalia who will be here to represent the Scalia family for the dedication of the U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Antonin Scalia Criminal Justice Institute at ASUMH. John, an attorney, is the son of Maureen and the late Justice Antonin Scalia.

In April of 2015, Justice Scalia was in Mountain Home for an enjoyable week of hunting and fishing. Students at ASUMH were the beneficiaries of numerous events that Justice Scalia made available to them. While in our area, Justice Scalia lectured for classes and addressed the community in an event titled "A Conversation with U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Antonin Scalia." Justice Scalia was scheduled to return to Mountain Home, but those plans changed due to his unexpected passing in February 2016.

At their February 24 meeting, the Arkansas State University Board of Trustees elected to name the Criminal Justice program at ASUMH in honor of Justice Scalia.

Attendance at the two dedication events is limited to ticket holders for the performance of Cinderella by the Russian National Ballet Theatre. The performance begins immediately following the introduction of John Scalia. Media comps are available for both events.
