In celebration of Constitution Day, order
New Mexico State University professors will hold a panel discussion on the First Amendment: Censorship and the Arts, from 7 to 9 p. m. Tuesday, Sept. 14, in the Corbett Center Ballroom.

Serving on the panel will be art professors Stephanie Taylor and David Taylor, journalism professor Roger Mellon, government professors Nancy Baker and Mardi Mahaffy and Ingrid Schneider of the NMSU Library. Jeff Brown of the art and history departments will act as moderator.

“We felt that a focus on censorship and art was appropriate given the recent dedication of the arts center,” Baker said. “We often hear about the First Amendment protecting political speech, but the First Amendment also protects creative work and expressive conduct.”

Congress established Constitution Day in 2004 to commemorate the signing of the U. S. Constitution at the Constitutional Convention on Sept. 17, 1787. Under the law, every publicly funded educational institution provides programming on the U. S. Constitution either on or close to Sept. 17.

Sponsors are the departments of government, art, journalism and mass communications and history.

Pocket copies of the U. S. Constitution will be available to the first 100 attendees. The event is free and open to the public. For more information, contact the department of government at 575-646-4935.
