Art-Art History 2001 Reunion Web Pages
Reunion Date: October 19 - 20 -21, 2001
Welcome to UCRs Art and Art History Alumni Reunion Web Page and to the Departments of Art and Art History, the Sweeney Art Gallery and the UCR/California Museum of Photography.
More than 45 years have passed since UCR opened its doors to students. During that time, nearly 50 faculty have guided more than 750 students through studio art and art history curriculum. We are proud of the fact that these areas of study have enriched so many lives.
To celebrate, we are holding an inaugural Art and Art History Alumni Reunion the weekend of October 19-21, 2001. Former and current faculty, alumni and students in Art and Art History will come together for two and a half days to catch up on college memories and life experiences, and see first-hand what their departments are doing today.
If you share a connection with UCRs Art and Art History departments past or present we invite you to join us in October. The reunion events include:
If you cant attend the reunion, you can participate through our web scrapbook, our "visitors kiosk", or our silent auction.
I hope all of you including spouses and significant others will join us for this historic and exciting event!
With warm wishes,

Fine Arts Building
Our reunion coincides with the opening of the new Fine Arts building. The move to these new quarters is scheduled to take place during the winter/spring terms of the current academic year. We hope to make a tour of the new building part of our scheduled events.
Construction of the new fine arts building began in the fall of 1998. Serving as a physical and symbolic gateway between the community and the UCR campus, the 55,000-square-foot buidling will be home to the music, dance, theartre, art history, and studio art departments. It will include dance studios, music rehersal rooms, performance spaces, a photographic and film shooting studio, painting and sculpture studios, computer laboratories, and library collections related to the arts.
Built at a cost of $20 million, the project is expected to be completed in the winter 2001.
