MRS. MELLON DONATES ART BOOKS TO STUDENTS IN ANTIGUA & BARBUDA
Friday 25th November 2011
 
100 art books, many of them limited editions have been donated to the Art department at the Antigua State College (ASC) by philanthropist,  Mrs. Rachel Mellon.
 
The books will help to form the college’s first art library and will go a long way in assisting the students with their research projects, explains a very happy Mark Brown, the college’s art tutor: “this is an invaluable contribution as our students often struggle when it comes to research and having access to material that can inspire their work and give them a more global framework. We cannot thank Mrs. Mellon enough for her wonderful gift and this will help us to secure an art library at the college.”
 
Valerie Skepple, Administrator of the Mellon’s Mill Reef home, spoke on behalf of Mrs. Mellon at a brief presentation: “Mrs. Mellon is very happy that the books will be used by the art students of Antigua and Barbuda, especially as she has a deep love and appreciation for the art.”
 
The 100 books include books on the life of some of the most renowned artist of the last 400 years including Leonardo da Vinci, Monet and Picasso, as well as reference books spanning cultures and continents from the Caribbean to the far east.
