Biographical history

Although special events have always been a part of Art Center, from graduations to visiting artist lectures, there was not a dedicated Special Events Director until the late 1980s. As of 1991, the position was under Department of Advancement. In February 2003, the Department of Marketing & Communications was established, and the Office of Special Events was moved into that division.

Special Events Directors, under various departments, are:
Angus J. Whyte, 1989-1990
Leisa Bukovitz, Advancement, 1991-1995
Jeanette Stramat, Advancement, August 1995-2002
Jo Jo Tardino, Marketing & Comm., 2002-
