OCAD U remembers Catherine (Kit) Currie

 

Tuesday, September 9, 2014 - 4:00am

It is with great sadness that the OCAD University community notes the passing of alumna and OCAD U life model Catherine (Kit) Currie. Kit graduated from OCAD U in 1998 from Interdisciplinary Studies, with a focus in sculpture and printmaking.

Kit was a loved and highly sought after member of the university’s life modelling team since she began modelling in 2001. Her dedication to the arts and her work as a life model helped develop the skills of countless students. Kit’s image is represented in literally hundreds of student and alumni sketchbooks and portfolio cases.

In remembrance of Kit, her family has directed donations of support towards Search & Rescue Dogs Ontario and the Canadian Alliance on Mental Illness and Mental Health. The university community offers the Currie/Brown family and Kit’s many friends its deepest condolences. Kit is also being remembered on a Facebook page, where friends and community members can share photos and memories.

The OCAD University community is considering a memorial event, with details to be shared at a later date. OCAD U students are encouraged to contact OCAD U’s Health & Wellness Centre for any support or counselling needs.
