David Lee Craven (Distinguished Professor of Art and Art History)

It is in deep sadness and with a heavy heart that I share the following story on the untimely and unexpected death of distinguished Professor David Lee Craven (Art and Art History). He was  — as noted within the attached — gen­er­ous in spirit, praise, intellect, and also in his enthu­si­asm. His contributions to our graphic arts, contemporary exhibition catalog, and circulating Art History collections were extraordinary and reflective of his broad and deep commitment to intellectual and creative exchange. David’s loss cuts deep, not just here at UNM, but in all of the communities where he spread his infectious enthusiasm for Latin American Art, theory and popular movements. It was a distinct privilege to know him and to work with him. Please see:
