AIKEN, SC (WFXG) -

The University of South Carolina Aiken is celebrating the 150th anniversary of Abraham Lincoln's Gettysburg Address at the Etherredge Center.  

Students and visitors can see an exhibition of original artwork of Abraham Lincoln by artist Wendy Allen of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania in the Etherredge Center's lower gallery now until Dec. 15. 

Dr. Barry Schwartz, Professor Emeritus of Sociology, University of Georgia, will present thoughts about Lincoln's Gettysburg Address in American memory from his forthcoming book on the subject. His presentation is scheduled for 2 p.m. Saturday.

Both events are free and open to the public.

Schwartz is the author of "Abraham Lincoln and the Forge of National Memory," and its sequel "Abraham Lincoln in a Post-Heroic Era" about how Lincoln images have been viewed and interpreted by Americans since his death "to serve the enduring need of individuals to find orientation and meaning for their lives by invoking and judging the past."

Schwartz's talk will take place in the Etherredge Center lower gallery lobby, with the Lincoln art exhibit as his backdrop.  Refreshments will be served following his presentation.
