Eric L. Sweet left us suddenly on April 6, 2015, at age 44. Eric was a beloved member of the MU Art faculty, having worked at MU since 2012 as an Adjunct Assistant Professor, teaching Printmaking, Drawing and 2-D Design courses. Eric was an alumnus of the Art department, having earned both his BFA (1997) and MFA (2011) from the University of Missouri. In 2008, he received an MA in Printmaking from the University of Missouri-Kansas City. Eric was an active member of the Southern Graphics Council International and the College Art Association.
To celebrate Eric’s life and positive role as an educator, we have established this fund to continue passing on his gift. Donations will support funding for graduate and undergraduate students who aspire as printmakers and artists, especially those expanding printmaking’s traditions.
Please consider donating to honor Eric Sweet’s legacy. As Eric (and his 4th grade teacher) might say, “You don’t HAVE to, you GET to.”
