Dennis DeToye, 1947 – 2015
Dennis DeToye was instrumental in the formation of the Edwardsville Arts Center, and has been a revered member of the community for decades. Dennis was an influential art teacher at Edwardsville High School, and had a great impact on his students. He taught from 1970 – 2003, and continued to be involved in community arts for years afterwards. From his great love of teaching, he helped form the student gallery at the Edwardsville Arts Center, which is named after him, the “DeToye Student Gallery.” The student gallery holds an exhibition of student work in conjunction with every show in the Main Gallery.
