Carnegie Mellon's Sustainable Landscape Architecture Program Presents Student Achievements

PITTSBURGH—Carnegie Mellon University's Sustainable Landscape Architecture Project, an effort to involve inner-city youth in improving their environment by gaining college prep skills and awareness in urban landscaping and architecture, will celebrate the vision of these future landscape artists and architects from 5:30 to 8 p.m. this Friday, June 4, 2004, in the College of Fine Arts Building's Great Hall on the Carnegie Mellon campus. The presentation and reception is free and open to the public.

Carnegie Mellon artists and members of the STUDIO for Creative Inquiry will mark the end of the 10-week, free after-school program that focuses on ways to recycle inner-city urban lots, brownfield sites and abandoned buildings into environmentally friendly areas for art-based projects. Artist S.K. Woodall, Sustainable Landscape Architecture Project creator and a fellow in the STUDIO for Creative Inquiry, will present the achievements his students have made and honor them with a reception following the presentation.

Woodall says the event is also an opportunity to thank the faculty, volunteers and contributors and announce the nominees for scholarships to Carnegie Mellon's Pre-College Architecture program and the recipients of the Fallingwater student residency.

The STUDIO for Creative Inquiry is an interdisciplinary research facility within Carnegie Mellon's College of Fine Arts. The College of Fine Arts is a community of nationally and internationally recognized artists and professionals organized into five schools: Architecture, Art, Design, Drama and Music, and their associated centers and programs.
