Congressman Brian Fitzpatrick presented a proclamation and a flag that flew over the Capitol to Delaware Valley University. The proclamation was presented to the University in celebration of the “Springtide and Solstice” exhibit at the concert and opening reception on Sunday, Feb. 17.

The concert and exhibit came together as a result of collaborative partnerships including the University’s Chorale, its Arts on Campus initiative, and the Palisades Community Chorus. Also participating in the event was the Doylestown-based Coalition to Shelter and Support the Homeless, which raised funds for the Coalition’s Code Blue initiative. 

The event featured a performance of Haydn’s “The Seasons” and an exhibit of Bucks County painters, curated by Lisa Tremper Hanover.  

The “Springtide and Solstice” exhibit featuring Richard Lennox, Christopher McCall, Robert Seufert, and Jas Szygiel will be on display on the second floor of the University’s Life Sciences Building through March 31. 

“We’re pleased for the recognition of this event which was an excellent example of a town and gown partnership,” said Arts on Campus Co-Chair Linda Lefevre. “The concert and opening reception brought together members of Bucks County’s vibrant performing and visual arts community, and provided a venue to raise awareness and funds for an organization that helps the homeless.”
