About the exhibit: an invitation

Students in Professor Sanda Iliescu’s Painting & Public Art (Arch. 5780) class invite you to watch them paint as Campbell Hall’s Elmaleh Gallery becomes a working art studio.

Feel free to walk around the gallery and see the students painting, cutting, gluing, and stitching their final project, The American Flag Transformed.  But be careful: there is wet paint around, as well supplies and work in progress!

Visitors may use the paper, pens and pins provided at the entrance to leave notes for artists whose work interests them. You may pin your note next to the work in progress.
