MtA opens Pierre Lassonde School of Fine Arts

September 20, 2021
Mount Allison University has officially opened the Pierre Lassonde School of Fine Arts. The new name recognizes a $5M donation from Pierre Lassonde to support MtA’s arts education. The donation will be used to fund new academic awards, internships, and an Artist-in-Residence program that will begin in January. “The Pierre Lassonde School of Fine Arts allows and encourages innovation in education and training for the next generation of professional artists and arts professionals,” says MtA President Dr Jean-Paul Boudreau. “Building on Mount Allison’s long-standing program and the talent and dedication of our faculty members, this investment will attract students from across the country and beyond.” MtA (NB)
