Student Sculpture in the Library

Students in Asako Nakauchi’s Intro to Sculpture class are currently exhibiting metal amalgam creatures on the library’s main level.  The students were asked to create animals that do not exist by mixing parts of 2 or more animals or–better yet–borrowing from imaginary animals!  Asako’s students will be exhibiting metal sculpture throughout the semester so stop by and peruse!
