CFA Centennial Celebration
And 100 years ago the School of Applied Design at Carnegie Mellon University was founded as the first comprehensive arts learning institute in the United States. The college will be celebrating its anniversary during the 2005–06 school year. The celebration will build a bridge between the historical excellence of the college and the current fine arts community on campus to ensure the future of the college as a unique blend of professional and conservatory experiences within a research university.
The year will include a special alumni art exhibition in the Miller Gallery; visits around the country by the new Stanley and Marcia Gumberg Dean of the College of Fine Arts, Hilary Robinson; a special evening in early February at the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra featuring faculty soloists; and many other fine arts activities throughout the year.
The main celebration for the campus community and College of Fine Arts alumni will be a Beaux Arts Festival during the day on March 4, 2006, and a revival of the Beaux Arts Ball that evening. All College of Fine Arts alumni will be invited to this centennial birthday party so please plan to join us on March 4.
