Gelsy Verna was a beloved faculty member in the Art Department who passed away unexpectedly in 2008. She was a dedicated teacher, an exceptional painter, and a huge advocate for our students. The department established the Gelsy Verna Project Space in the Art Lofts, located just off the main atrium, in her memory.
