Mural project provides platform for A&S student artists

Mattie Perez (Program Assistant, Sr. – Advising) exhibited a love of art from an early age, but her interest waned as a college freshman. “I didn’t see a future for myself as an artist,” she says.

Working alone, Perez chalked a different mural every week for nearly two years before deciding this could be an excellent opportunity to support and encourage undergrad student artists. Thus, the A&S Featured Artist project was born.
