WUT’s latest event is the launching of the album ”Artists and Pedogugues” coordinated by Dean Prof. Camil Mihaescu. 

”This book-object is a great initiative to keep alive the
history of the Faculty of Arts and Design, formerly
known as the Faculty of Plastic Arts, that has
influenced in a profound and undeniable manner the
cultural life of Timișoara and of the whole region. And
as any faculty is essentially defined by its people, by
those that built it as institution, the present album
is a gift to the over one hundred teachers that have
put their efforts to the benefit of developing one of
the most important education centres dedicated to
visual arts and design.
Such an album has a great symbolic meaning and
it is, as Pierre Nora would say, a lieu de mémoire,
because it „talks” about the past of a very special
community and therefore it connects the generations
of yesterday and today. The yesterday’s generation
has surprised by its energy and creativity and this
obliges us to always remember them. This way, the
landmarks of their work is and will be available to the
today’s students but also to the future generations,
to all those that will follow and will want to know
more about the teachers and artists that are tightly
connected to the Faculty of Arts and Design.”

Professor Marilen Gabriel Pirtea PhD,
Rector of the West University of Timișoara
