Beautiful things can happen when science and art collide. The Davis Centre Science and Engineering Library recently hosted an art exhibit featuring artwork by Fine Arts students.
The display consisted of individual works submitted as final term projects for this term's Fine Arts Introduction to Drawing class (FINE 225). The pieces expressed, through humour and satire, the UW students’ psychological and emotional states during the examination period.
Library staff were initially approached by Fine Arts student Kristina Foster about mounting the display. The final exhibit showcased the work of five students: Erin McLaughlin, Kristina Foster, Paul McKellar, Carmen Peters, and Ivana Vukov.
Jennifer Haas, Head of the Information Services and Resources Department at Davis, notes that "both the staff and students enjoyed having the display," adding that the Library would be happy to host similar displays in the future.
