Mural on the Mount

Painting began on Sept. 28, with two shifts of painters working on Sundays.

Last year in her functional sculpture class, Madelyn Minicozzi received some advice that struck her.

“Things in the world do not need to look like their function,” her professor, Jude Lewis, told the class.

Those words stuck with Minicozzi, now a industrial design sophomore, as she trekked back and forth to classes throughout her freshman year. As she went up and down the stairs towards Flint Hall on the Mount, she kept thinking about how Lewis’ words could apply to the wooden walls she walked past.
