CSUS Appoints Art Advisory Committee
The School of the Arts at California State University, Sacramento
is sketching the framework for its future with the creation
of a new advisory committee.
The committee’s goal is to provide
guidance for School of the Arts community involvement,
outreach, promotional plans and program development.
The School of the Arts was formed in
spring 2000 and includes the departments of art, design,
music, and theatre and dance. More than 100 professors are
involved in the instruction and development of some 800 majors
studying in the four departments.
"We hope we will gain some
perspective from the committee that will assist us in
developing a leadership role in the arts through a constant
exchange of information," said Rollin Potter, director of the
School of the Arts.
Members of the committee include
professionals from the local arts and business
"As far as art advocates, the
committee members are probably the most visible and respected
people in the city. It’s a very prestigious group of people,"
The members are:
