You are cordially invited to CVAD Celebrates! on Oct. 22, 4–6:30 p.m.
The College of Visual Arts and Design will host and celebrate the college's faculty, staff, students, alumni and friends as we gather to dedicate the Art in Public Places sculpture by artist Matthew Ritchie, the opening of the new Art Annex building and the donors and recipients of the CVAD Scholarship and Fellowship Program.
We hope you will join us. Come, let us raise a cup together and toast to you, the CVAD community, in celebration of visual arts, design, art education, art history, scholarship and more!
Friends and family are welcome!
Ritchie is a New York-based artist known for his paintings and installations that draw from science, sociology, anthropology, mythology and the history of art. His 20-foot-tall, 7,000-pound sculpture, “Shadow Garden,” is located on the west side lawn of the UNT Art Building. The 25,242-square-foot Art Annex building is the new home of the Studio Arts ceramics program and 40 graduate-student studios, dedicated spaces to inspire creativity and exploration.
The open house also extends to the Art Building with an exhibition of student work on all floors. We look forward to seeing you!
