Huntley Gallery Tour - August 20, 2014

Huntley tour groupPace Setters had a private tour of the new Don B. Huntley Gallery on August 20. The Gallery featured Don Huntley's exceptional western art collection. Mr. Huntley has donated over 100 pieces of art to Cal Poly Pomona and select pieces are on display at different times of the year. Michele Cairella Fillmore, the new curator and director of the Kellogg University Art Gallery as well as the Huntley Art Gallery led the tour and shared interesting facts about the collection and how Mr. Huntley obtained most of the art work. She told us about future plans for both galleries, and concluded our tour with a visit of a storage area where other pieces of western art are stored. It was an interesting behind the scenes look at the Huntley Gallery.

Members enjoyed the tour so much that many signed up for the Art Gallery mailing, and were enthusiastic about a future event where we could tour both Galleries at the same time.

Scholarship News

 

A big THANK YOU to everyone who supported our first two Pace Setter Scholarships! Since our presentations at the luncheon meeting in April we almost have enough support for two more scholarshipsl. The winners will be selected late March and announced at the April general meeting.  As a reminder, the scholarships will go to an undergrad or graduate student who has a record of some campus volunteer involvement and a minimum of a 3.0 GPA.  The recipient will be screened by the Financial Aid Office and selected by two Pace Setters, one of whom will be a Board member.

Your general donations to Pace Setters are always welcome and we thank all of you who help out in this way.  If you want your donation to support the Pace Setter Scholarship then when you make your check out to Pace Setters/Cal Poly Pomona Foundation you must indicate “scholarship” on the memo line.  We are looking into ways to raise funds in addition to donations but in the meantime, we appreciate your participation in this effort. 

Students interested in applying for a Pace Setters scholarship can contact the Financial Aid Office for more information.
