April 8, 2022 received from Marta Gillen

We are sad to report the passing of John Spence Weir on March 10, 2022. John began his career with DVC in September 1970 and retired as a photography instructor in June 2004.

A former student and later employee in the Art Department shared the following: John was a brilliantly skilled artist and a masterful instructor, inspiring thousands of students during his career, many of whom went on to a life of being educators and practicing artists. 

A memorial retrospective of John’s work is planned for January 2023 in DVC’s new art gallery space.
