YOU MIGHT BE A UA ART ALUM… Fall 1976 Art Grad Students on Woods Quad. Photo by Larry Newberry

If you remember art classes on the upper porches of Woods Hall with breath-taking views all around, if you remember the whirring and clicking of slide projectors in Garland or Hardaway, if you remember the Little Bo snack bar, or the graffiti in the Woods Hall elevator or the Raudelunas Collective…then you probably are an alumnus of the Department of Art and Art History!

Alumni, in 2015, the Department of Art and Art History (a.k.a. the art department) will be celebrating our 70th anniversary. We hope to have a special issue of alumni memories, so please send them to us! You can email or click on the form below and tell us about what life was like while you were in the art department!

I still remember so many exhibits at the art gallery on the ground floor… Some of them were really outrageous, with loud music and an automatic slide machine throwing all kinds of images onto the paintings and sculpture.  This was in the ’70s, so psychedelic ruled. — Charlotte Rivenbark, BHEC 1972, MHEC 1977
