BFA painting student Josiah Lloyd was commissioned by the Geological Sciences Department to make a large painting for the building’s redesigned entry. This was made possible through a collaboration between Julia Morrisroe’s site specific painting class and the faculty in Geological Science. Students were asked to select a faculty member based on their research interests. They then met with faculty to gather information and used material they collected as inspiration to create a series of paintings, and a site specific proposal to compete for a commission. In the end, the jury selected student Josiah Lloyd and the unveiling of his work took place on Feb. 7, 2014. Michael Perfitt decided the department would also like to purchase two of student Jenna Horner’s completed paintings.
Congratulations, Josiah and Jenna! If you would like to see their work, Lloyd’s is in the main entry and Horner’s works are in the hall of the 2nd floor of the Geological Sciences Building.
