SHSU Department Of Art Hosts Second Annual Art + Community Gala

Published on September 18, 2015 by Larry Crippen

The Sam Houston State University Department of Art will host the second annual “Art + Community” gala on Oct. 8 at 7 p.m. in the Lowman Student Center Ballroom.

This year, the gala will honor Dan Phillips as “Outstanding Supporter” of the Arts, Dan Pratt as “Outstanding Alumnus” and Kim Cook as “Outstanding Young Alumna.”

Student recipients of the department’s 2014-15 scholarships and the donors who made those awards possible also will be recognized, as will retired Department of Art faculty members Jimmy Barker, Stanley Lea, Gene Eastman, Charles Pebworth, and Emmette Jackson, who will be honored for their ongoing contributions to the art and culture of SHSU.

In addition, a “Special Recognition Award” will be presented to Laura Carter in honor of former political science professor Jim Carter.

Tickets are $40 and can be purchased online at shsu.edu/academic/art/gala or by calling 936.294.4311
