Duquesne University Law Centennial Fellows Recognized For Their Generosity
The Duquesne University School of Law is hosting an unveiling of a special art glass mosaic that will mark the generosity of donors to its Centennial fundraising campaign.
The law school’s Centennial logo, reproduced in a 35 ¾ inch wide by 45 inch high art glass mosaic with sand etching, will be revealed to guests at a special unveiling.
“This stained glass logo will be a permanent remembrance of our 100th anniversary for future generations of law students and faculty,” said Law School Dean Ken Gormley. “It will be a beautiful addition to the law school.”
After the Centennial fundraising campaign is finished, the names of donors who have contributed at significant levels will be listed individually as Centennial Fellows on the wall surrounding the glass mosaic of the logo.
Funds donated by the Centennial Fellows will be used for student scholarships and for various programs in the law school, according to Gormley, including the Moot Court and the Legal Writing Programs, the Law Review and others.
The art glass mosaic of the Centennial logo was produced by Hunt Stained Glass Studios of Pittsburgh, which has created works for churches, synagogues, hospitals, universities and other businesses across the country.
When: Friday, Sept. 23, at 4 p.m.
Where: Second Floor Lobby of the Murray Pavilion, School of Law, Duquesne University, 600 Forbes Ave., Pittsburgh
