LEWISBURG, Pa. — Ten Bucknell University alumni participated in a panel discussion recently with students and the community.
The panel discussion was part of the opening of the Samek Art Gallery exhibitions, "Carving in Context II: Granite Carving by William Lasansky" and "Sculptors since Bucknell."
The 10 "Sculptors since Bucknell" artists are active sculptors, teachers and administrators throughout the United States.

Lasansky is retiring after this semester after teaching for 38 years.
