Chyrl Savoy, Professor at the University of Louisiana, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Artists for dedication, achievements, and leadership in academics.
With more than 45 years of professional experience, Ms. Savoy was a professor at the University of Louisiana from 1978 to 2015. Prior to obtaining this role, she was an assistant professor at Louisiana State University from 1973 to 1977. Earlier in her career, she was an art teacher with St. Martin’s School in 1969. When she returned to New Orleans after graduate school, she was nervous to exhibit her artwork in any shows. However, she entered a piece into a biannual exhibition and received an award and offer for the art to be purchased. This instilled in her a confidence that she could continue contributing art to the world and inspire others to do the same.
Ms. Savoy began her career as a student at Louisiana State University, where she completed a Bachelor of Arts in 1966. She then joined Wayne State University, serving as a graduate assistant and earning a Master of Fine Arts in 1970. The 1952 movie, Moulin Rouge, was an integral inspiration for Ms. Savoy. She found the movie so dazzling that she drew all the characters as a young child. After watching it, she was never the same. In her career, she was named Teacher of the Year by the Beacon Club at the University of Lafayette.
