Fairmont State University's and Pierpont Community & Technical College's Campus Art Collection Committee commissioned a painting by former Fairmont State faculty member and alumnus Lynn Boggess.

The winter landscape scene was officially accepted as part of the art collection in September and will be hung in the Falcon Center Board Room.

Boggess earned a B.A. in Art Education from Fairmont State in 1978 and an M.F.A. in Painting from the Cranbrook Academy of Art in Bloomfield Hills, Mich., in 1980.
