First Alumni Art Exhibit Opens Oct. 5

Here’s another reason to look forward to the kickoff of Homecoming and Reunion Weekend on Friday, Oct. 5: the opening of Ravenscroft’s first-ever Alumni Art Exhibit.

A celebration of the power of visual arts for our students and alumni, the exhibit, held in Pugh Lobby of the Fine Arts Center Oct. 5-28, 2018, will feature the work of 19 Ravens from the Class of 1973 all the way through the Class of 2018 — as well as recent Alumni Fine Arts Hall of Fame inductee Marriott Procter Little ’47, a Tucker Street-era alumna. Admission to the exhibit is free.

“We want to showcase the many talented artists, both professional and amateur, who have been a part of our art department over the years,” Tammy Haywood, director of alumni activities, said. “The Alumni Art Exhibit will also be a great connecter between artists across the decades.”

The exhibit’s official opening will take place after the Alumni Association’s annual meeting Oct. 5, which begins at 11:30 a.m. in the Keim Center for Innovation and Research. At that meeting, the association will honor Charles M. Winston Jr. ’78 with the Distinguished Alumni

Award and induct Jill Muti, former director of fine arts and assistant head of school, into the Ravenscroft Fine Arts Hall of Fame.
