It is with profound sadness that I reach out to you and let you know that Leslie Pierce, Winthrop grad, artist, and Director of Public Programs at the Columbia Museum of Art passed away peacefully on Sunday morning, June 28, 2015. She brought such light, love, and happiness to all that she did, and her impact on the museum and the arts community she treasured will be remembered, honored, and long-lasting.
Leslie loved Winthrop and the unwavering support she received from the faculty. A service is being planned for the end of July in Union S.C. I will update you as I receive more information.
