Alumni, students, faculty, staff and friends are invited to view the artwork of Larry Young ’76 and Justin Strom ’98 throughout the weekend, and celebrate with the artists during the Friday night reception.

An Olympian, Larry has been nationally recognized for his sculpture. From small maquette to monumental works, he blends contemporary forms with classical compositions that capture the human spirit. Young’s talents led him to receive the Distinguished Alumni Award in 1984 and he was inducted into the Athletic Hall of Fame in 2004.

Justin is a mixed media print artist who is currently an Associate Professor of Printmaking and Digital Imaging at the University of Maryland-College Park. Strom works with both traditional and digital processes to produce mixed media prints that have been included in numerous group and solo shows throughout the U.S. and Europe.
