Sutton Style

Unveiled in May, the Sutton Bench was born of an idea from Blane Dessy ’73, director of National Enterprises for the Library of Congress. Dessy approached Art faculty member BA Harrington about lending his support for a class project to create a bench reflecting the architectural style of Sutton Hall. Harrington’s Advanced Woodworking students came up with prototypes, and Dessy chose the winner, a design by MFA student Mike Bennett. Harrington is now planning limited production of the benches as a fund-raiser for the Wood Center. Pictured from left: Blane Dessy, Mike Bennett, and BA Harrington. Photo: Keith Boyer

Months of activities focusing on racial justice culminated in the daylong IUP Diversity and Inclusion Symposium in April at the Kovalchick Complex. The event included a panel discussion with Davie Huddleston ’68, Art Woods ’83, and Sean McCaskill ’92, M’01 (pictured, from left), who discussed the subtle and overt forms of racism they grew up with and continue to encounter as successful African American men.

Activist Welcomed

Healthy Competition

According to its label in the IUP Archives, this 1970s photo was taken at a touch football game between the Division of Student Affairs and the Graduate Student Assembly. If you can identify the participants or share a story, Harrison Wick, IUP Special Collections librarian and university archivist, would love to hear from you. He’s also interested in acquiring IUP memorabilia, yearbooks, photos, and more. Contact him at hwick@iup.edu. Credit: IUP Archives
