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.
