Collaborative Undergraduate Research and Inquiry (CURI)
Erika Terwilliger, Evan Weselmann and Visiting Assistant Professor of Art Michon Weeks are working collaboratively to plan and fabricate wall-drawing installations in three locations on campus. The team began the project by researching wall drawings from ancient and contemporary sources. The team is developing the project by finding locations in St. Olaf buildings for the wall drawings, writing proposals, creating prototypes, and testing materials.
