"A River Runs Through It" by Drew West


In "Altered Books: Memories Unhinged," 17 student artists take an interpretative trip down memory lane.

"Brynna vs. the World" by Brynna Colella

The students repurposed old and duplicate books, using them as platforms to share a personal memory from their childhood. The project was part of an assignment in Natalia Pilato's Secondary Methods Course in the Department of Art Education.

"Untitled" by Journey Stein

The students' work was graded on its level of creativity, design and construction quality. The work also had to incorporate the senses and tell a story, and students were required to use at least three different materials and at least three different techniques.

The assignment yielded visually stunning and thought-provoking artwork. Definitely worth a look!
