On November 16, 2017, guided by advisors Professor Marietta
Dantonio-Madsen, Chair of Fine Arts, Design, and Liberal Studies,
Professor Helena Domenic, and Professor Joel Keener, 10 students
ranging from freshmen to seniors were inducted into Cheyney
University of Pennsylvanias prestigious Fine Art Honor
Following their first meeting of the year, Fine Arts students
began raising money with the intent that all their efforts go
towards fees for memberships into the National Art Educators
Association (NAEA), one of the qualifications associated with
induction into the FAHS. Students then initiated various
fundraising efforts, and even put their artistic expertise to
impressive use by creating masks to sell to the attendees of
Cheyneys annual Masquerade Ball (hosted by the Hospitality,
Restaurant, and Tourism Management (HRTM) program).
On the night of the Masquerade
Ball, art students reveled in the excitement of not only the
evenings activities, but having finally reached their
monetary goal. Proceeds from their collaborative efforts helped
all 10 students seeking induction this year successfully obtain
memberships into the NAEA.
At this time, the Fine Arts scholars would like to thank all
their advisors for their support. Additionally, they thank the
campus community and other supporters that purchased candy, the
masks that the students created, and tickets to attend the
Masquerade Ball. A special thanks is sent to Dr. Ivan Turnipseed,
HRTM Program Chair, for agreeing to collaborate with the Fine Art
students efforts in obtaining their memberships.
