The 8th annual ART|WPI art exhibit showcases the wide artistic talent on WPI’s campus. Diane Begreen, operations manager for Gordon Library and one of the event’s organizers, says this event is a highlight of her year as she is always amazed at the creativity on display. Anna Gold, university librarian, agrees.
“This event shows how connected the practice of STEM disciplines is with creating art,” says Gold. “Design, curiosity, keen observation, an eye for detail, skillful work with materials, and the love of beauty are as much a part of practicing engineering and science as they are a part of the arts.”
At the ART|WPI reception on April 2, the Daily Herd spoke with some of the artists to discover their perspectives on why the arts and creative expression have an important place in today’s tech-focused world.
ART|WPI will be up through the remainder of D-Term.
