"20th Century Czech and Slovak Photography" is one of the inaugural exhibits on display at the new Center for Visual and Performing Arts at Endicott College in Beverly.

Construction of the $17 million, 62,000-square-foot building began in the summer of 2007 and was completed in December. Students began attending classes in the building, which overlooks the lakes on the main campus, last month.

"As a hallmark building on campus, the center will further promote the college's roots in and commitment to arts education," said Richard E. Wylie, president of the college. "While the center is a magnificent learning environment for our students, we hope that the community will also attend art exhibits, performances, and programs at the center."

The center includes a 250-seat recital hall; a 100-seat black box theater; an art gallery for exhibits, talks, and community shows; a student art gallery; art studios; computer labs for graphic design and visual communications; a photography studio; faculty and student lounges; and facilities for public receptions.

The photography exhibit displays the work of 20th-century Czech and Slovak photographers whose images were created between the First World War and 1994. It runs through March 31. Endicott College is at 376 Hale St., Beverly, 978-927-0585 or 800-325-1114.

Life and wildlife in Madagascar
For years before I started college, I knew I wanted to spend a semester studying abroad, but I wasn't sure where. By my junior year at Brandeis, I made up my mind to travel somewhere off the beaten path, and, of course, Madagascar is pretty far off the beaten path for someone like me....
