Site-specific art installations appearing throughout campus
Site-specific art installations designed by studio art majors as part of their Advanced Studio Concepts course have appeared throughout campus. “The students are always excited to have the opportunity to respond to the inspiring natural and architectural environment here at Salve,” said course instructor Susannah Strong.
The goal of the project is to create a piece on campus that transforms the public’s experience of the chosen site. Some works have a political or environmental message, while others are created purely for aesthetic appreciation.
“The students engage in extensive exploration of materials, as well as concept development through interdisciplinary research with professors outside the art department,” Strong said. “It is a great opportunity to share the art majors’ hard work with the larger Salve community.”
Students participating in the installation include Li Chen, Shannon Lazzaro, Jaeyoung Lee, Leigh Olson, Maggie Parker, Ayu Sakamoto, Brielle Salamone and Kyra Steinmetz.
