Mary Ann Beckwith has an art gallery named in her honor, thanks to a donation of artwork from Arlee Tampas, a Central Michigan University alumna, and Pete Tampas, former faculty member in the School of Technology.
The Mary Ann Beckwith Gallery, in the new Education and Health Services building on the Central Michigan campus, is so named “because of all she has taught me and others about papers, artists, techniques,” said Arlee. “And she shares her knowledge so freely with everyone in the community.” READ MORE
