UW-Parkside Professor of Art, 1965-1997 

Rollin Jansky served as an assistant professor of art at the UW-Kenosha Center beginning in 1965, and began teaching at UW-Parkside when the campus opened. As an artist, Jansky was known for his large scale polyester and fiberglass sculptures, and he also created welded steel sculptures later in his career. He exhibited nationally and garnered awards in regional and national art competitions. Jansky was granted emeritus status upon his retirement in 1997. 

Jansky’s impact on UW-Parkside students continues through the Rollin G. Jansky Endowed Scholarship in Visual Arts, established through his generous support. We invite gifts in his memory.
