Sacramento State and the city of Roseville are joining forces to support their common interests and have formalized their relationship with the signing of a memorandum of understanding.

The signing took place Wednesday, April 11, at the Blue Line Gallery, 405 Vernon St., Suite 100, Roseville.

Sacramento State President Alexander Gonzalez, Roseville Mayor Pauline Roccucci and City Manager Ray Kerridge took part in the ceremony.

The MOU is aimed at developing partnerships and opportunities to benefit both entities by matching University programs and services with the city’s business community; and identifying opportunities to expand Sacramento State’s presence in the Roseville/south Placer County area.

In keeping with the theme of the event, a former Sacramento State art professor had his works displayed in the Blue Line Gallery that day. Irv Marcus was at the University from 1959 to 1991 and served as the Art Department chair from 1966 to 1969. His exhibit “Storytelling” is on display through Saturday, April 14.
