Collaborations class in Louisville

Paul Brown passed along short stories from his favorite author, Haruki Murakami, in hopes of spreading his love of fiction to others.
Monty created this stunning visual piece out of paper and placed it in a local park.
Kurt and Kremena lit the hop-hop on fire, much to the dismay of Griffin Van Meter.
Katelynn Austyn hoped to promote community involvement with her poster inviting locals to finish the phrase "Kiss me I'm...." with interesting results.
Amanda Velez created this incredible paper work enveloping a tree in a local park. Hanging from the tree were some of her favorite "truisms."


Two weeks ago, the Community Engagements class took a field trip to University of Louisville to exchange thoughts and ideas with Mary Carothers Collaborations class. We were able to open dialogue about how and why it is important to engage with one's community. Also, we exchanged homework assignments with the class. We have commissioned them to write This I Believe essays of their own, and we are responsible for creating "unexpected" art in the North Limestone area neighborhood. The pictures from the meeting itself are on the picture blog, and the image documentation of the art in unexpected places homework assignment is posted above. The pictures from the rest of the class's projects will be posted later along with the descriptions of all the images.
