Investing in Future Students

A Cut Above

For nearly a year, the wood sculpture Save Dance has been suspended from the ceiling of the Performing Arts Center grand lobby, the space that has connected Fisher Auditorium and Waller Hall since 2008. The College of Fine Arts commissioned the piece from wood sculptor and furniture maker Michael Stadler ’03, M’09. According to Stadler, the three intertwining pieces of wood represent the college’s three disciplines: music, visual art, and theater and dance. His materials included wood from the pin oak that once stood between Fisher and Waller. “It’s an honor to create work for a community that values art,” said Stadler, who teaches an art course and has been an ArtsPath artist in residence for five years at IUP Punxsutawney.

Armstrong Campus Memories

This photo from the 1981 Oak is believed to have been taken at a house across the street from Boyer Hall, which became Pechan Hall, at IUP’s Armstrong County campus in Kittanning.

This photo from the 1981 Oak is believed to have been taken at a house across the street from Boyer Hall, which became Pechan Hall, at IUP’s Armstrong County campus in Kittanning. In 2005, the campus was moved to Northpointe, near Slate Lick, at which time its academic offerings were expanded. If you know the identities of these students or have a story to share, Harrison Wick, IUP Special Collections librarian and university archivist, would like to hear from you. He’s also interested in acquiring IUP memorabilia, photographs, or scrapbooks. Contact him by e-mail at
