"In a darkened space, five tall white rectangular boxes float on the wall—modest counterparts to the marble-clad columns in the building’s lobby.

Remembering Nancy-Lou Patterson 1929-2018

Nancy-Lou Patterson

Nancy-Lou Patterson, founder of the Department of Fine Arts at the University of Waterloo, has died.

I hope many others will share their stories of her life, but here is a small celebration of her teaching.
