Featuring work from students and faculty from the communications department, the new exhibit in the Mary Idema Pew Library is an interactive space focusing on helping students at GVSU feel connected.

Located on the atrium level of the library, the exhibit showcases watercolor paintings of various GVSU students along with quotes from each respective student and audio recordings of interviews done with students.

The exhibit was a collaborative project gathered together for the exhibit “Connected: An Exhibit of Shared Laker Experiences.” The watercolor paintings were done by GVSU alumna Ellie Lubbers, the interviews were conducted by students from the School of Communications running the Humans of Grand Valley project, and the audio was edited by Assistant Professor Len O’Kelly.

The exhibit also contains an interactive portion which allows visitors to the exhibition space to paint watercolor circle representative about how their feeling about the upcoming school year.

The exhibit will be open through Sept. 22. For more information, visit the GVnow article or contact Library Program Manager, Erin Fisher at fisherin@gvsu.edu.  The full audio interviews can found at gvsu.edu/library/connected.
