Celebrating our 15th year of the Arts Festival, the Arts Council and the amazing workshop operated by Mark Cooper have constructed this giant wooden 15 sculpture. In typical Arts Festival fashion, we invite all students to make their mark the piece until it is completely covered in paint. Since it was hauled over from the Connolly House on Wednesday and sitting out in the sun all last week, the living work of art has already gotten some color from students enjoying the Spring weather. The Dance Organization of Boston College, promoting their slot this year’s festival wrote, “I ❤ DOBC”; some nostalgic students from the class of 2013 showed their support by tagging, “Seniors ❤ Arts Fest”; even Bob Ross, the legendary PBS hippy painter, found his way onto the piece.
We are very proud to be celebrating our 15th birthday and we would like to invite all students to help us commend this epic milestone by expressing themselves. If you’re on your way to McElroy or Stokes, headed back to Upper, or even just enjoying the Spring weather, definitely stop by our 15 sculpture and throw up your favorite in class doodle, show your support for the student and faculty artists performing in this year’s Arts Festival, or if you’re not too artsy just embellish someone else work. We look forward to this year’s Arts Festival as it debuts this Thursday. Be on the look out for the giant art tents as they start to go up this week and if you’re looking to get involved contact us at email@example.com!
