Outside Sherzer Hall students have been working on a semester-long art project where time is the central concept.
Colorful crocheted squares hang from one of the trees outside the hall and when taking a closer look a sign reads, "Feel Free to interact but PLEASE don’t remove. Artwork in progress. Will be removed at the end of the semester."
Eastern Michigan University’s Studio Concepts class headed by Suzanne Boissy is responsible for these projects. Unlike other foundational courses in the art program, students do not start out learning specific materials. Instead the idea comes first and the students structure their materials around it, in this case the first concept the students are focusing on is time.
These are a few of those semester-long projects, we will continue to upload projects throughout time here.
