This temporary public art project was organized by Heidi Leitzke, Eckert Art Gallery Director and Dorothy Frey, Painting Professor, to provide Advanced Painting students the opportunity to collaboratively create and exhibit bold paintings that share important messages for our campus community.
Title: You Will Never Take My Power
THE ARTISTS: TEE AVILES - BRIDGET O’SULLIVAN - ALYSSA TASCIONE - JOYCE WILLIAMS
About this Project ... Our painting was created to show power and strength within the black community. The figure in our piece with open hands, observes the powerful beauty he holds within. The background portrays an abstracted scene of a peaceful protest in response to the wrongful death of George Floyd. This piece is in dedication of the recent deaths caused by police brutality. Lives such as Tony McDade, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Aubrey, as well as many other countless lives lost that were not recorded or afforded the awareness they deserve. This mural can shed light on the issue of systemic racism that exists within our society today. It is our hope that this piece raises awareness that we, as a community, will advocate for social change.
Title: Rescue the Amazon
THE ARTISTS: CASSANDRA SHANNON - JENNA RAEZER - SARAH HUNSIKER - QUENTIN BRENDEL
About this Project ... Our planet’s tropical rainforests are still being destroyed at an alarming rate. Rainforests are the richest and most biologically diverse ecosystem on Earth, and much of them is being lost to human activity. We believe that nature should be preserved so that future generations can observe the splendor of life on Earth at its most brilliant. This poster depicts a lush, verdant view of the Amazon jungle, with its indigenous plants and animals, to draw attention to the irreversible damage that is being done.
Title: Water Your Inner Garden
THE ARTISTS: MARLENA POPSON - JAMES ARNOLD - MCKENNA DUNN - KAITLYN FISCHER
About this Project ... This piece was inspired by the poem “After a While” by Veronica A. Shoffstall. We wanted to focus on the theme of self-care and self-positivity, and were drawn to a line in Shoffstall’s poem “So you plant your own garden, and decorate your own soul instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers”. We transformed this idea into a painting using the same flowing garden to represent how we should decorate our own souls.
