WALLS Round Up Part 2: “Tweeting” the Experience
It’s almost time for students to return their WALLS artworks. Here at WCMA, we’re really interested in the knowledge and experiences generated during these semester-long loans. We checked in with students to ask them to reflect and sum up their WALLS experience in a “tweet” (140 characters or less): here’s a roundup of some of their responses.
Abraham Kirby-Galen ’16
The art on my walls brings color to my room, and it reminds me of the goodness that exists in the world, even during those late nights.
Rakdong Lim ‘15
It has really brightened up my room, and got me thinking about my own religious identity at a deeper level.
Liz Albert ‘14
I love having a photo of a fridge by my real fridge. A really special part of our apartment’s senior year.
Carolina Jaramillo ’16
Yeah, Loewy, Puiseux, and I are old friends. We like to look through telescopes. This one was from that one time in 1900… Good times.
Student: Nina Pande ’17
A nice small piece of art with an interesting story, looks great in our room!
