Having been away on leave, I have been delighted to return to the energy and excitement of our department. So that you too may share in this, I would like to invite you to visit our new web site — http://artdept.nd.edu — where you can keep up with all of our news and events and to stay in touch with the deeds of our many alumni. Please do write to us and let us know what you are doing ( firstname.lastname@example.org ). We like to think that once you have been a part of the department, you will always be a part of the department.Happy Christmas from us all in Riley Hall.
