Painting donated to Ripon in memory of Claudette Lee-Roseland ’60

“Send in the Clowns,” an abstract painting from the collection of artist Claudette Lee-Roseland. ’60 of Cedarburg, Wisconsin, has been donated to Ripon College in her memory by her husband, Dean Roseland.

Lee-Roseland died Oct. 3, 2021. At Ripon, she studied philosophy and psychology and participated in student government and Alpha Phi/Kappa Sigma Chi. She was a member of the 40th reunion committee.

She received a master’s degree in special education from the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater. After a career as a teacher, she became a professional artist and exhibited around the state. She also volunteered at the Cedarburg Art Museum.

Her family says she always enjoyed returning to Ripon and her last public outing was to Ripon College’s Alumni Weekend held in August.

More information about Lee-Roseland and her work is available on her website.
