Have a look at art that looks at you
A pair of student-created, oversize charcoal portraits made at the recent Create-a-Thon has found a temporary home adjacent to the elevators on the 8th floor of the Cofrin Library.
The large, finely detailed drawings are of Chancellor Tom Harden and Provost Julia Wallace — specifically, their eyes, approximately 10x life size — positioned to give visitors a careful look, or vice versa, as they step off the elevator. Art faculty member Kristy Deetz says the display is in keeping with the creative “art bomb” series evident across campus throughout the year. Ranita Haanen created the image of Wallace, and Zack Swan created the image of Harden
