Director DePompies, our director of pride and tradition, is working to coordinate a mural design contest with Rob Tibault, director of Hunt Union. The mural design entries will be accepted in Fall 2013 and the winning submission will then be projected onto the walls of the Waterfront room, Hunt Union, in Spring of 2014. Director DePompies is in the process of putting together a committee of art department faculty, along with maintenance workers who would be willing to look at the space and to assess what types of supplies will be needed.
The art faculty would be part of the panel that gets to decide on the winning submission while the entire student body will get the last say via a campus-wide vote. The Student Association is always looking to include any interested students and/or faculty members to become more involved, whether it is through mural design or voting for the best submission.
Any interested students are encouraged to submit an original and unique design that would not only add character to the room but also act as his/her legacy left long after graduation. This is a great opportunity for the students to have their work displayed in a central location on campus for many to see. If you, or someone you know is interested in submitting a design or being part of putting it all together, contact our director of pride and tradition, Michelle DePompies or visit us in the SA office for more information.
