The sophomore Interior Design studio class will be designing an art gallery space as their final project this semester, and Ted Pietrzak, former director of the Burchfield Penney Art Center, has agreed to come speak to the class. It is open to all interested students and faculty.

During his time at the Burchfield Penney, he coordinated and completed a $36.6 million capital campaign and opened a new award winning, LEED certified art museum facility attracting over 150,000 visitors over the first two years of operation. Pietrzak is a Canadian who graduated from the University of Guelph, Ontario, Canada, and he has certificates from the Banff School of Arts Management, Banff, Alberta, Canada, the Museum Management Institute held at University of California at Berkley and the Creative Leadership Institute held at the University of Maryland, at College Park.

Over his 38 year career in the arts, Pietrzak has worked at six art museums throughout Southwestern Ontario, Canada and in the United States. He has been involved in leadership roles in areas intersecting the arts with healthcare, social services and economic development; developing innovative programs and forging collaborations to ensure that arts play a stronger role in community life.

There is limited seating available, so please reserve your spot  for the talk by emailing Sandra Reicis at reicis@villa.edu.
