From scholarships to lecture series, donors invest in the students of the College
of Communication and Fine Arts in a wide variety of ways. Inspired by the recent partnership
between the Art Museum at the University of Memphis (AMUM) and the Department of Architecture,
a recent unique donation will award Architecture students funding support for model
building and aid in the development of this important skill set.
The intent of the gift is to provide students experience with budgets, fully exploring
their design concepts and creating competitive visual representations for future clients.
The quality of the work produced by our students not only inspired this gift but also
resulted in two of the models being selected to become part of a national traveling
exhibition through 2016.
Donations of any amount can be made for supporting student models, if interested,
please contact Katherine Goliver, CCFA director of Development, at 901.648.4372 or
firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
