Alumni Honor Wall

Ringling Alumni Wall of Honor was first unveiled in 2018 to recognize exceptional Ringling Alumni. Criteria for determining our outstanding alumni included awards and accolades received since graduating, and creative work that makes a positive impact.  Designed by Graphic Design Department Head Jeff Bleitz, mounted in the Keating Center and updated annually, this museum quality installation honors exemplary Ringling College graduates in each major, as well as Alumni Leaders who support the College with their time and treasure.
