Kennesaw State student artwork installed in Clendenin Building
Artwork celebrated by College of Science and Mathematics
By Brian Tucker
KSU students Kristel Nubla and Daniel Johnson
On Friday, Sept. 17, three KSU art majors had their work installed on the second floor of the Clendenin Building. Ron Matson, interim dean of the College of Science and Mathematics, was joined by the students and their professor, Associate Professor Jeanne Sperry, during the installation of the three pieces designed exclusively for the building.
The three pieces are “Distorted Destruction” by Anna Lydia Aguiar, “The Equation to Infinite Solutions” by Daniel Johnson and “The Advancement of Minds: Fibonacci Effect” by Kristel Nubla. Nubla, a senior art major with a concentration in graphic design, is thrilled with the experience of having her work displayed publicly on campus. "I feel very excited to see our hard work up on the walls. I'm very thankful for this opportunity."
Aguiar, an art major who graduated in May, says, “Because the building holds all science and math classes I wanted my art to create awareness about the environmental changes we are going through. The main concept is to create environmental awareness. I want people to be intrigued by the bright colors and shapes, but to take a closer look and see the things they recognize, such as wildfires and the melting of icebergs.”
Sperry exercises a philosophy that her classroom becomes a real-world experience making significant contributions to help clients within the university and surrounding community, while giving the students a high level of responsibility and reward.
The three works run the length of the second floor of the Clendenin Building.
