Mythical creatures loose at Washington and Lee University

Washington and Lee UniversityThe wizarding world of Harry Potter is not the only one to have a collection of mythical creatures kept hidden. For too long our creatures have laid dormant in Washington and Lee University’s galleries and storage just waiting to break free.

Join folks at the Reeves Center on Oct. 27 from 10 a.m.– 12 p.m. on the W&L campus, to experience creatures from myth through ceramics. The event is a free family program for ages 7-11, children must be accompanied by an adult.

The Reeves Collection of ceramics contains pieces made in Asia, Europe and the Americas between 1500 and the present; each one telling its own story. Not sure what creatures are out there? Let us show you! We’ve got several pieces that feature a variety of mythical beings; or perhaps you would like to use our ceramics to inspire your mythical being design in the Crazy Creature Challenge!

Nervous about all the creatures? Don’t be! We’ll have time to produce our own wands and practice defense spells. Don’t miss out on this chance to become a mythical creature expert because the program’s going to be magical!

There is limited space for the event. Please RSVP to Cassie Ivey at or 540-458-8476 by Oct. 22


Augusta Free Press content is available for free, as it has been since 2002, save for a disastrous one-month experiment at putting some content behind a pay wall back in 2009.

(We won’t ever try that again. Almost killed us!)

That said, it’s free to read, but it still costs us money to produce. The site is updated several times a day, every day, 365 days a year, 366 days on the leap year.

(Stuff still happens on Christmas Day, is what we’re saying there.)

AFP does well in drawing advertisers, but who couldn’t use an additional source of revenue?

From time to time, readers ask us how they can support us, and we usually say, keep reading.

Now we’re saying, you can drop us a few bucks, if you’re so inclined.
