We realize the recent news about Watkins’s merger with Belmont University has taken our beloved community by surprise. We hope you know that the decision was guided by the sincere desire and obligation to maintain the legacy of Samuel Watkins for current and future Watkins artists. We also believe Belmont can manifest Watkins’s potential in ways that are not only forward-thinking and far-reaching, but in ways that also stay true to its founding. As this transition takes place, we ask that you—as alumni, artists, and fellow stewards of the college— help the college reach even greater heights by staying involved and helping define the shape of Watkins College of Art at Belmont University. More information will be available once the merger is complete about how you can maintain your connection with Watkins.
