Seasons Mural:  This amazing nine-panel Seasons Mural was discovered in an undisturbed area of storage in the Community Arts Center’s Goldhaber-Fend Fine Arts Center building. After the panels were brought out of storage, it was revealed that the panels were one continuous mural that followed a progression of all four seasons. The mural is believed to be part of the annual artwork commissioned for the Bethlehem Steel winter gathering. It is thought that this artwork was displayed with framing to appear as though onlookers would imagine they were looking out a window to see a beautiful landscape.

Robert Slenker:  Robert E. Slenker: The late Robert E. Slenker, was born May 22, 1929. Robert was a graduate of Red Lion High School in 1948, receiving a bachelor’s degree at Indiana University of Pennsylvania and his master’s degree and professional diploma at Teachers’ College, Columbia University, New York. He was a well-known artist who actively exhibited his works at Pittsburgh Society of Artists, the Community Arts Center of Cambria County, Pittsburgh Center for the Arts, Craftsmen’s Guild of Pittsburgh, Associated Artists of Butler and the U.S. Bank Gallery, along with being a member of the Allied Artists. He is best known for his unique creations, which he called “assemblages,” that were made from a variety of found objects assembled into wooden, framed works of art. Robert met his wife Jean at IUP, when both were art education students and later became high school art teachers. By the late sixties, they were on the IUP art department faculty and for over three decades, Slenker made significant contributions to the university and thousands of students. Robert Slenker passed away in September 2001.
