Fourth Annual Behrend Faculty, Staff and Alumni Art Show Opens Nov. 15

Alumni submissions new addition for 2017

One of the goals of the arts administration and digital media arts programs as well as the general education courses at Penn State Erie, The Behrend College, is to foster a lifelong love of art. Alumni of the college now have an outlet to showcase that love.

The college’s fourth annual Faculty, Staff, and Alumni Art Show opens Wednesday, Nov. 15, with a “Meet the Artists” reception in the Lilley Library gallery from 6 to 8 p.m. The show features works by faculty and staff members from several departments of the college. For the first time, this year’s show also will include submissions from Penn State Behrend alumni.

“We’ve been thinking about having an ‘alumni only’ show at the gallery. Including them in this call will let us know if it’s possible to have a show for them in the future,” said Heather Cole, assistant teaching professor of digital arts, who organized the show.

The show, which will remain on display through February 8, is supported by the Mary Behrend Cultural Fund and co-sponsored by the arts administration program at Penn State Behrend.

The reception and show are free and open to the public, and some pieces may be for sale by the artists. Parking is available in the Reed Union Building lot or any visitor parking lots, and visitor parking permits can be obtained from the Police Services office in Erie Hall.
