In honor of Associate Professor Emeritus Robert Ivey, the College of Charleston School of the Arts and the Department of Theatre will host a memorial and celebration of his life on Saturday, Aug 13th at 2:00 p.m. in the Sottile Theatre, 44 George Street. Immediately following will be a reception in the Hill Gallery in the Marion and Wayland H. Cato Jr. Center for the Arts. All are invited to attend.
The plays, ballets, musicals and operas that Mr. Ivey directed, choreographed or influenced are countless. They will forever leave his imprint on the arts community in Charleston. His desire to bring the experience and opportunity of dance to all people should be forever remembered and emulated by all of those he touched.
To honor Mr. Ivey and his multitude of contributions to the College, the Department of Theatre created a scholarship fund, The Robert Ivey Scholarship in Dance. The intent of this fund is to create the first endowed scholarship supporting a planned Dance major. The Department of Theatre recently received a $10,000 pledge from a generous donor, who will match total donations to the fund up to that $10,000 pledge. Anyone interested in honoring Mr. Ivey and making a contribution may do so by calling 843.953.6306 or by e-mailing email@example.com.
