I Madonnari

By Rene Thompson, Editor-in-Chief

Art Instructor Lynn Johnson’s Drawing II class par­ticipated in the art contest titled, ‘I Madonnari (named after an Italian street painting festi­val), which began on September 17 and is coming to an end this week. Participants drew chalk or char­coal based drawings on sidewalks on campus, and provided ballots to observers to vote for their favorite one. Voter ballots are being tallied, October 1, 2013, and the group with the most votes will be the winners of this year’s contest.

There were four groups of four stu­dents each that par­ticipated in the event that had students make their own renditions of two famous art pieces, one classic and one contemporary, that are combined into one piece.

These pieces can be seen on the walk­ways at school on the east end of Ken Chappy Hall, and at Jeannette Stromberg hall on both the south and west ends of the building until October 10, Johnson said.
