LYCOMING COLLEGE

ART GALLERY

Avenue of the Arts. Lycoming will

open a new art space on West 4th Street

in Williamsport’s downtown business

district. The build out of the leased

space will be completed in time for

homecoming and the inaugural exhibit

will feature works from the collection

of Barbara and Leonard Sylk, who are

well known for their extensive collection

of Pennsylvania artists. Barbara Sylk

describes the collection as a window

into another point of view, stating, “We

did not start out with a plan to have

a collection. We were a young couple

buying what we liked and could afford,

and what struck us as important in

some way. Forty years later, we have

a significant art collection including

works that are realistic, abstract, and

in-between, in a variety of media and

subjects.”

Barbara Sylk earned a bachelor's

degree in art from Lycoming College and

a master's degree in art education from

the University of the Arts. She serves

on the Board of Trustees for Lycoming

College and the Pennsylvania Academy

of the Fine Arts. Sylk is a former art

teacher and owner of Cadme Gallery in

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

CREVER HALL JOINS THE NEW MILLENNIUM

Crever Hall, a co-educational residence hall that houses approximately 134 upper

level undergraduates, underwent a complete renovation. Residents benefit from many

environmental and mechanical system upgrades.

The three-story building, centrally located on College Place, offers suite-style rooms.

Built in 1962, it is named for Lycoming College’s founder, the Rev. Benjamin H. Crever.

The building was outfitted with new plumbing, and the traditional steam heat

system has been replaced with a hot water loop system that features high-efficiency

boilers. Student rooms are equipped with individual controls, providing more consis-

tent temperatures throughout the building. Other upgrades include larger bathrooms

and new fixtures throughout.
