Alumni Awards

The Arts and Architecture Alumni Awards were established more than 30 years ago with the purpose of recognizing the career achievements of Penn State alumni in the arts and design disciplines.

The Arts and Architecture Alumni Society is proud to partner with the College’s academic units in sponsoring this recognition program. Returning alumni may meet with students in informal and classroom settings, visit with faculty, or deliver lectures. One recipient is selected by the faculty in each of the College's Schools/Departments and asked to return to campus at a designated time to visit for several days.

The 2019 awards will be presented at a ceremony open to the public at 4:15 p.m. on Friday, November 1 in the Palmer Lipcon Auditorium, Palmer Museum of Art. .

The award piece (pictured above) was designed by Penn State graphic design alumna Heidi Yosinski (’07).
