Eric Olson


Eric Olson BA ’75 is professor of strategic management and marketing in the College of Business at the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs (UCCS). He’s also a former department chair and interim dean. In April 2023, Olson realized his artistic dream with a gallery show titled Hiatus, featuring 10 large-scale structured acrylic paintings at the GOCA Project Space/ENT Center for the Arts, UCCS. Olson created the original watercolor sketches for these works when he was a student at L&C, but they lay dormant for more than 40 years while he pursued his academic and administrative career. With the onset of the pandemic, Olson finally found time to complete these works. Each piece borrows a title from a song with a positive message and invites viewers to draw their own interpretations based on their unique stories.
