Art Take Away for Education

"The School of Social Work at Monmouth University will  be celebrating its 40th Anniversary in the 2014-2015 academic year.  Forty years of preparing social workers at either the baccalaureate level or since 1998 at the graduate level is quite an accomplishment.  We are quite proud of our alumni and their achievements and look forward to celebrating all throughout the 2014-2015 academic year. We are equally proud that our graduate program has also been recognized in the 60th position as a “Top 100” program by US News and World Report.
One of our first events that will kick off our anniversary year will be an “Art Take Away for Education” on June 20, 2014.  This event will be held in Rechnitz Hall, a brand new Art Gallery building on the beautiful Monmouth University campus.  The “take away” guarantees that everyone who comes to this event will leave with a piece of donated original art, whether it is sculpture or framed painting.  All proceeds will be put towards scholarships in social work for our graduate students.
If you are interested in making a donation of one of your pieces of original art that will be part of the take away and silent auction during this evening, please print this information.  Monmouth University is planning on photographing a select group of pieces and putting them on a website for invited guests to view before the event along with information about you and your work."
