Ribbon cut for South AfricaThe UF Levin College of Law unveiled images of South Africa’s Bill of Rights in Holland Hall on Friday. The College of Law purchased the images from an art gallery in Durban, South Africa, said Kathie Price, associate dean for library and technology. Price is heavily involved in UF’s South Africa study abroad program. South Africa’s Constitutional Assembly adopted the new Bill of Rights in May 1996. Until April 1994, when South Africa had its first democratic election, many South Africans were subjected to numerous human rights violations. The prints are one set of 50 limited-edition portfolios produced. Many artists produced the art in various styles to represent South Africa’s diversity. The images are displayed on a wall in the third floor of Holland Hall.
