By Debby Stinson, Museum of Art/WSU

PULLMAN, Wash. – An art show and sale of works by former fine arts faculty at Washington State University will demonstrate the lasting and ongoing legacy of WSU’s dedication to the visual arts. It will also raise funds for the new Museum of Art/WSU.

“Legacy: Former Fine Arts Faculty Exhibition, Fundraiser & Art Sale” will run May 19-July 2. A closing celebration will be 4-6 p.m. Thursday, July 9, in the museum gallery. Admission is free.

As many as 25 past teaching-artists will be featured, spanning multiple generations of faculty and art. Many of the artists have generously provided works for sale; proceeds will support building a new art museum at the heart of campus.

At any point during the exhibit, patrons may purchase art by contacting Anna-Maria Shannon at annamshannon@wsu.edu. All works will be available for pickup after the July 9 closing celebration.

Funding for this exhibition is provided by the Samuel H. and Patricia W. Smith Endowment and by the Members of the Museum of Art.

The Museum of Art/WSU is committed to recognizing the creative talent of its region. Its goal is to support creativity and innovation in students who can seek out divergent opinions, examine complex issues from a variety of perspectives and find meaning in the world.
