Ewing's $5 million gift to UNCSA will be lead gift in upcoming fundraising campaign SPECIAL TO THE CHRONICLE A $5 million pledge from Chancellor Emeritus Alex Ewing will serve as the lead gift in a compre hensive ftmdraising cam paign by the University of North Carolina School of the Arts (UNCSA), Chancellor t , Lindsay Bierman has announced. One of the largest gifts in the 50-year history of the school, it will result in the renaming of the largest per formance venue on cam pus. Performance Place, which contains Gerald Freedman Theatre/ Catawba Theatre and Patrons Theatre, will be named Alex Ewing Performance Place, Bierman said. It is the primary train ing facility for the schools of Drama and Design & Production, and hosts per formances by the School of Music, including the Jazz Ensemble and opera pro ductions. "We're profoundly grateful to Alex for his con tinued support of the School of the Arts," Bierman said. "This trans formative gift will launch our campaign which will include support for student scholarships, faculty, endowments, educational programs, and critical upgrades to our facilities." Chief Advancement v 5 Officer Edward J. Lewis said there is more work to be done before the cam paign is officially launched, with a goal and timeline to be announced later in the year. "Happily, during this quiet phase, we have the opportunity to build on the momentum of this gener ous gift, and other recent fundraising success, to ensure a successful com prehensive fundraising campaign," Lewis said. The $5 million gift comes on the heels of a $1 million gift from Ewing that wilj be devoted to scholarships beginning Fall 2016. Both were announced to the UNCSA Board of Trustees in May, with the $5 million gift being attributed to an unnamed donor. Also announced at that time was a $250,000 gift, also from an unnamed donor, for a scholarship in the School of Drama, and an event that raised $200,000 to fully endow the Gillian Murphy Scholarship in Dance, named for one of the school's most celebrated alumni. "We can expect great things under Ed Lewis' leadership as he builds the capacity of his team," Bierman said. "We look forward to sharing more about our campaign, and more good news, in the months to come. It's an exciting time for the V School of the Arts." Ewing served as chan cellor from 1990 to 2000. During his tenure, he founded the School of Filmmaking, where the three-theatre exhibition complex is named ACE (for Alex C. Ewing) ip his honor. He also established the Lucia Chase Endowed Fellowship in Dance, named for his mother who was a principal dancer and longtime artistic director with American Ballet Theatre. The fellowship annually provides funding for world-renowned- guest artists in the School of Dance. The University of North Carolina School of the Arts is America's first state-supported arts school, a unique stand-alone public university of arts conserva tories. With a high school component, UNCSA is a degree-granting inSfiljution that trains young people of talent in dance, design and production, drama, film making, and music. Established by the N.C.
