Congratulations to Elizabeth Chodos on her role as CMU Public Art Curator. “Public art elevates and enriches the campus experience and helps define the creative spirit that students and faculty share across all the colleges.” - Elizabeth Chodos. Mary Ellen Poole, Dean of CMU College of the Fine Arts announced that "as Director of the Miller Institute for Contemporary Art as well as Assistant Professor of Art, this role will be adding a third set of responsibilities to her already impressive portfolio. Following several years of serving in this capacity on an informal basis, Elizabeth has officially been named CMU’s Public Art Curator, effective immediately. Her skills in communication, research, negotiation, and stewardship have already resulted in important enhancements to the aesthetic environment at CMU, most recently a major acquisition at the new university residence hall at Fifth and Clyde streets, soon to be installed." Thank you, Elizabeth for all your dedication to the arts and many contributions to our CMU and Pittsburgh communities!
