February 8, 2001 Unveiling of 'recognition lanterns' set for February 20



A double unveiling ceremony is scheduled for Tuesday, February 20, of installations honouring donors to Concordia’s recent capital campaign.

The first will be in the atrium of the Oscar Peterson Concert Hall on the Loyola Campus at 4 o’clock, and the second will follow in the J.W. McConnell Building atrium on the downtown campus at 5:30. Reserved buses (from Loyola to downtown) will be available for anyone wishing to attend both ceremonies.

The installation is an illuminated sculpture, chosen by a jury of Concordia students, faculty and staff, as well as Campaign donors and volunteers to recognize gifts of $5,000 to $1 million from alumni, friends, corporations, foundations, estates and other organizations to the Campaign for a New Millennium.

The avant-garde lanterns also serve to showcase the creativity of Howard Davies and Jennifer de Freitas, who teach in Concordia’s Studio Arts Department as well as running their own design companies, Atelier Big City and Associés libres, respectively.

The whole university community, as well as external donors of $1,000 and up, are invited to attend and celebrate with a glass of sparkling wine.

Later in the year, another event will be held to recognize faculty and staff contributions to the capital campaign of $1,000 and more.
