As part of the 50th anniversary of the founding of the art department, a book telling the story of the visual arts at Caldwell University is now available. The anniversary coincides with the 40th anniversary of Caldwell College becoming New Jersey’s first higher education institution to be certified to offer the Bachelor of Fine Arts degree and the ending of the 75th anniversary celebration of the founding of Caldwell College for Women. These milestones highlight the commitment of the university’s founders, the Sisters of Saint Dominic, to make the arts integral to its educational mission. This history celebrates these milestones as well as the faculty, students, alumni, administrators, trustees, and benefactors whose talents, leadership, and generosity made them possible. The telling of the story of the visual arts at Caldwell University is augmented with color photographs of major events, persons and artworks that adorn our beautiful campus.
