Regional Artists: Audrey Klotz & Peter Landa donated pieces of their fine art works to the UConn Stamford campus on Tuesday, October 21, 2014 at 2:00 p.m.
This is the second time in over 10 years that donated art work has been installed at the University of Connecticut’s Stamford campus. Standing in for Dr. Sharon White, Campus Director was Associate Campus Director Jeffrey DeWitt. The Artist Peter Landa was accompanied by his wife Kerrie Mills. Regrettably, Artist Audrey Klotz was unable to attend the unveiling. Several departmental Staff members were on hand to share in the celebration.
The works included Peter Landa’s two pieces: “East China Cove” ink & markers, 16”x12” & “Peasant #2” ink & acrylic, 17”x13”; Audrey Klotz’s work of art: “Red Means STOP!” acrylic on canvas, 21” x 21”
All three pieces are now on display along with commemorative plaques. They can be viewed on the 2nd floor hallway, opposite the Biology Lab, room 2.05.
The long awaited moment to Unveil Peter Landa’s art works has arrived!

Last year, in an effort to enhance the campus’ collegiate experience, the UConn Stamford Art Board was championed to acquire and display a permanent and conspicuous fine art collection throughout our lounges, offices and public areas. Shortly afterwards the Board communicated with former campus art gallery exhibitors by inviting them to consider donating one or more pieces of their art to the Stamford campus. All future gallery exhibitors will be invited to do the same. It’s our goal to build a permanent collection that will remain the property of the Stamford campus forever.
