ART 100 is a celebration of the centennial anniversary of art and art education in northwest Pennsylvania. Since 1920, the Edinboro University department of art education – originally part of the Edinboro Normal School, established in 1857 – has trained thousands of art educators, whose legacy in western PA is immeasurable, and has developed professional artists that have transformed life and culture in NWPA. This yearlong celebration of art and art education will take place across western Pennsylvania from August 2019 through December 2020.

The mission of Edinboro University is to develop students personally, intellectually and professionally to become contributing citizens to the Commonwealth and beyond. For decades, students in public school systems throughout the region were educated in the arts by graduates of Edinboro Normal School and Edinboro University. This celebration highlights and promotes the extensive legacy of Edinboro’s role in art education and the arts in the community at-large, while working to permanently embed art as a central tenet of life at Edinboro University.

As PASSHE’s largest and most prestigious art program, Edinboro University boasts more than 6,000 art alumni with nearly 1,000 living in Erie County. The visual arts play a vital role in economic development by celebrating creative communities and the transformational impact artists have on the quality of life in Erie County.
