Lynne Cohen, 1944-2014: uOttawa Mourns the loss of Friend, Colleague and National Treasure

Lynne Cohen began teaching in the Department of Visual Arts at the University of Ottawa in 1974 and remained a devoted proponent of student learning with us for over 30 years.  Among Lynne's many accolades is the Governor General's Award in Visual and Media Art, and she is the inaugural winner of the prestigious international Scotiabank Photography Award (she remains the only woman to date to have received the award).

This is a huge loss for not only uOttawa, but for Canada and the international art world at large.  Deepest sympathies to the family and all those who have been touched by her.  There are many.
