Missouri State Art History student Elizabeth Haughey will give a professional public presentation, "A Design to Investigate and a Cloth to Conserve" as the featured First Friday Art Talk at the Park Central Library and gallery on Friday, February 7, at 6 p.m., followed by a question-and-answer session.

Elizabeth Haughey is pursuing a Missour State University Bachelor of Arts degree with an individualized major that combines studies in Anthropology, Spanish, Latin American studies, and Art History. She plans to graduate in May 2014.
