Fine Arts Advisory Committee

In 2007, a Fine Arts Advisory Committee was created to help preserve, maintain and advance the school's permanent collection, as well as to raise the importance of and recognition for the fine arts within the greater Burroughs community. The FAAC includes alums, parents, and friends who are also artists, gallery owners, collectors, historians, curators, and docents. In addition to adding more than 150 pieces to our permanent collection, including works by Christine Corday, Damon Davis, Tom Friedman '83, Jane Hammond, Ernest Trova, and many others, and initiating the ON LOAN series in the Brauer Building and the CURVED WALL series in the lobby of Haertter Hall, the FAAC curates the annual alumni show, advises on specific display locations, facilitates visiting artists and speakers, and sponsors the biennial Art for Breakfast event.
