Department of Art and Art History to Hold Open House for Area High Schools
October 15, 2009
The Department of Art and Art History will hold an open house event to present department facilities and programs to area high schools, Gary Hatcher, department chair, announced.
The open house will be 7 – 9 p.m. Friday, Oct. 16 at the Paint Studio, room 2 by UT Tyler’s west entrance. During the open house, high school art students will visit with current UT Tyler art students and faculty and tour studio and exhibition facilities, including UT Tyler’s new Fine Arts Complex, which is slated to open next year.
The event also will serve as a recruitment tool for promising high school seniors, Hatcher added.
The university began construction on the $7 million complex in September 2008. The 30,000 square-foot addition will offer new studios, student work areas, a seminar room and lecture hall situated on the west side of campus.
