The visual arts at Stevenson are vital to the University because they help inspire creative thought and promote an engaged campus community. This fall, Stevenson will celebrate the 20th anniversary of the opening of the Greenspring Campus Art Gallery—and the more than 175 exhibitions that have taken place at the University since then—by featuring works from our permanent collection. This exhibition will feature a variety of paintings, drawings, prints, and photographs that will be on view in multiple locations on campus throughout the academic year.

Fittingly, during this celebratory year, the University will present an expanded exhibition series with the addition of a new exhibition space in the Academic Center on the Owings Mills North Campus, which will open for classes in August. The new exhibition space will join the School of Design Gallery on the Owings Mills North Campus as well as the Art Gallery and St. Paul Companies Pavilion on the Greenspring Campus to provide a diverse series of exhibitions and programs that enrich the cultural life at the University and enhance Stevenson’s academic curriculum.

Stevenson became the first NCAA Division III institution to take to the court in beach volleyball this season and is currently just one of two Division III schools to sponsor the sport. The team debuted on March 13 against Division II Carson-Newman and had a handful of Division I schools on its schedule. The NCAA approved beach volleyball as its 90th championship sport in September 2015. The Mustangs finished the inaugural season with six victories, including going 3-1 in the first-ever home tournament. The team finished the season winning five of the last seven contests.

Vietnam Faces

Since 2014, students and faculty from Stevenson University’s Public History program have aided Maryland Public Television (MPT) in what the station dubbed the largest initiative in its history. Throughout this spring and summer, “MPT Salutes Vietnam Veterans” honored men and women who served in the Vietnam War with a series of programs and events, including “Maryland Vietnam War Stories,” a three-hour documentary aired in three parts from May 24-26.

To preview the documentary and to help raise money for the project, MPT aired its “Vietnam Initiative Preview” on April 21. The program included an interview with Glenn Johnston Ph.D., Chair of Stevenson’s Public History program and the University’s Archivist. Johnston, along with 34 Public History majors and one program alumnus, spearheaded the effort to locate and provide images of the 192 Maryland natives who are not represented with photos in Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund’s “Wall of Faces”—an online database commemorating service men and women killed in action. Since Stevenson began its involvement, the team has unearthed images for 122 of those 192 individuals through historical research and public engagement.
