In memory of 

Glen Blakley

"It is with deep sorrow and grief that I pass along news of the passing of Glen Blakley, Professor of Art.  Glen lost his battle with COVID-19 yesterday, December 31, 2020.  He was a beloved father and teacher; world-class artist, ceramicist, photographer and painter; mentor, teacher, and friend to countless DSU students, faculty, and staff.  Glen will be remembered for so much, including his generous kind heart and encouraging spirit.  Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends."
