Liam Besneatte-Cullinane to pursue career as an artist

by Billy Chandler

Our Emory & Henry seniors are preparing to graduate and change the world.

Liam Besneatte-Cullinane, from Bonner’s Ferry, Idaho, will graduate in May 2021 with a degree in Studio Art. While at Emory & Henry, Liam worked with the gallery team at the McGlothlin Center for the Arts, served as Vice President of Theta Chi Epsilon, President of the Art Club, and Sweetheart to Sigma Upsilon Nu.

“Emory & Henry is already a part of the real world,” says Liam. “Every experience I had at E&H affected and applied to every other part of my life. I was also able to work directly in my field of museum/gallery work at the McGlothlin Center for the Arts, make connections, and gain applicable experience.”

Faculty members that were important to Liam include Joe Champagne, Dr. Ben Letson and Charles Goolsby.

After graduation, Liam plans to continue working towards becoming a world-famous visual artist.
