About the Exhibit
The common thread in this exhibit is the collaboration among the students of the VIP and Fine arts programs to complete the five murals on view at the Gallery 61 space.

The painting students collaborated on a mural project, which began with drawing objects they did the first day of class.  These were composed in exaggerated scales, using overlap to create shallow space.   Each student painted square segments that were assembled into the mural.   This process teaches the power of scale; it shows the importance of commitment and follow-though in working cooperatively towards a shared goal.

The VIP exhibition has 4 murals whose themes range from the loss of the cherished classmate, Ben Cecil, to the Rain Forest. They drew objects that reminded them of the jungle. One of the students painted a Venus Fly trap, which is how “Feed Me Seymour” began. Once the images were drawn, the students filled in the marked areas with color.  Each mural evolved from an idea and the participating students painted the blank pieces of brown paper into colorful images. 

Conceptual and completed models, drawings on tracing paper and sketchbooks comprise the work by the architectural students.  The sketches include notations of their ideas about air flow, traffic patterns, floating cities, furniture design, a boxing ring and travel sketches from a recent trip to Cuba.
