Visual Arts/Art Education Affiliate Program Group


The School of Visual Alumni Group was founded with the purpose of providing a forum in which alumni of the Penn State School of Visual Arts (SoVA) can stay connected to each other and to the School, remain informed about the affairs of the School and the College. The group hopes to assist the School, as appropriate, in the recruitment of students, and to support and encourage educational and career opportunties for students in the fields of visual arts and art education.


The group is currently seeking several additional board members to join a group of continuing board members. Meetings of the board can be held by teleconference, and at the collective convenience of the group. The group is currently represented on the Arts & Architecture Alumni Society Board by Michael Fratangelo. If you are interested in the possibility of giving back to the School of Visual Arts by serving on the alumni group board of directors, please contact Joyce Hoffman in the A&A Alumni Office.
