An Unprecedented Visual Arts Donation

Last week, a very rare and special gift for our Visual Arts department arrived on campus. Tom Elliot '92, a longtime gemologist and jeweler, sent Bob Johnson two boxes full of rough-cut turquoise stones from New Mexico. Bob opened this unique donation for the first time with his class to much excitement and awe. His students will have the opportunity to create extraordinary pieces of jewelry incorporating these stunning turquoise this semester.

Our many thanks to Tom Elliot '92 for this highly generous and impactful gift!
