"It's fun to do art. It's also exquisite agony."

– Sidney ("Sid") Larson (1923-2009)

In 2003, the Columbia College Public Relations Department filmed an interview with Distinguished Professor Emeritus of Art Sid Larson, who passed away May 21, 2009.

The video shows Larson at his reflective, expansive best, speaking eloquently about art, his love for Columbia College and the joy of watching students blossom into artists in their own right.

Watch the video below.

A memorial service will be held in Launer Auditorium on the Columbia College campus Saturday, June 20 at 10:30 a.m. A reception will follow in the Banquet Room of Dulany Hall.

I loved seeing and hearing my former art teacher . Mr. Larson was such a kind man and an excellent teacher. My most vivid memories of Christian / Columbia College are of his drawing classes.
I will be sending a contribution to the scholarship fund to help another student enjoy learning the art skills that I acquired there.
