We are writing to invite you to a CU Department of Art and Art History event—one we believe is well worth your time. Current events have many of us wondering what we can do; how can we make a difference when the problems seem insurmountable?
We believe that the arts have the power to transform individuals, and to transform society.
Studying art promotes close looking, creative thinking, and problem-solving.
Educating students from all backgrounds is an incredibly effective way to help us change our world for the better.
This department has long valued diversity; our commitment to inclusive practice can be seen in the faculty and staff we have hired over many years, nearly half of whom are people of color. We would like to see diversity better reflected in our student body, and are taking action by fundraising for scholarships that will be dedicated to supporting students who will diversify our department. We want an education in art and art history to be accessible to everyone.
We are hosting a virtual fundraiser and hope that you can join us, and hear directly from students who have been impacted by studying in our department, as well as from faculty who have devoted their careers to teaching emerging artists and art historians. We will be sharing work by students and faculty and will close the evening with a raffle of a works generously donated by faculty and staff members.
Wednesday, December 2
