(Leavenworth, Kan.)—The University of Saint Mary Art Program Director Shelby Prindaville was recently invited to exhibit her work using 3P QuickCure Clay (QCC), a polymer clay she collaborated in creating with Dr. John Polman—a prominent chemist and Louisiana State University professor of macromolecular science—at Louisiana Art & Science Museum (LASM) in the Soupçon Gallery. Due to the exhibit's popularity, it will run until August—two months longer than expected.

Prindaville was also featured in LASM’s Art After Hours: The Substance of Art, where she explained QCC’s creation and demonstrated its use and all the new capabilities it brings an artist. 
Following the Art After Hours event, Prindaville guest presented at Louisiana State University School of Art on QCC and professional practices.
She was also featured on The Jim Engster Show—a broadcast on six different radio stations across the state of Louisiana with the slogan “Intelligent Talk for Louisiana.”
