Architecture Student Exhibits Work in Mortensen Library

Jaclyn Grimaldi, a senior in the Department of Architecture, CETA, has created an exhibit entitled "Raw Perspectives," which is currently on display in Mortensen Library.
The exhibit is Grimaldi's representation of her exploration of the relationship of religion and spirituality. During the summer and into this fall semester she explored, through photography, ceramics, poetry and architecture, her personal understanding of this relationship.
Since she felt this is a personal journey for everyone, she felt the need to design an exhibit that is interactive. Grimaldi invites you to comment in the journal book and to answer a question posed on the back of the cards above the journal book.
Her advisor for this Independent Study project, Associate Professor of Architecture James E. Fuller, commented "Jaclyn’s honest approach to this work required that she explore deeply her own feelings and to discover ways to express these through different media. She is very demanding of herself and, throughout the process, pushed herself to understand her feelings but also to create ways for viewers to be participants in her work, sharing in the discovery, and sharing their thoughts."
The exhibit will be on display adjacent to the circulation desk in Mortensen Library through Thursday, Dec. 20.
