During the winter term, the Center was used for two outside art exhibitions, the first featuring folk art from Nicaragua and another show entitled “Voices of Peace,” which included paintings and ceramics.
These events were sponsored by other University departments and organizations, including the Carney Latin American Archive and the Language & Cultural Training department.
The Center was also used for a Graduate Show of the work of the graduates of the School of Architecture and for the Graduate Reception. In addition, the School hosted a presentation in the Center by Kyong Park, who recently served as the visiting chair in urbanism.
The School’s annual Great Lakes Fabricator’s and Erectors Association-funded lecture series also utilized the space. This year’s lecturre featured a number of architects from California including Teddy Cruz, Peter Pfau and Thom Faulders. Total attendance at these five lectures was approximately 600 students, alumni and architects from around the region. In previous years, the lecture series was held at outside locations, but will now be at this new Center, allowing more students to attend the lectures.
A formal ribbon cutting for the new space will occur in October 2003 where the School will once again honor Warren Loranger. Watch your mail for an announcement of this event.
