    Lisa McLymont worked with the Typography Class to create an environment based on type.
    Words to Live By is a show comprised of each student's words of inspiration.

  • Curator: Lisa McLymont

  • Dot, acting as Quality Control, inspects a newly unpacked art shipment

  • Quick walk through before the show opens... checking for flow...

  • Jaron (Chill) Chapman

    Artist Statement: I believe that life is about progression. Stairs symbolize that. So for me the phrase "Don't Trip" seems to fit that motif.

  • Kari Landis: Imagine

    Artist Statement: Inspired and incorporated by the song Imagine by John Lennon. The idea of working (or flying in the birds case) towards peace and unity

  • Paige Reading: Explore. Dream. Discover.

    Artist Statement: When given the theme "Words to Live By", a quote from Mark Twain came to mind:
         "Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."

  • Paige Reading: Explore. Dream. Discover.

    This quote really sums up a good outlook for life.  Time on earth is short and we shouldn't be fearful of doing great things.  We should strive to step out of our comfort zone on a regular basis, and achieve great things in the time we have been given.

  • Tiffany Henderson: I Have a Dream

    Artist Statement: The 60s was such a powerful time for social action with the revolutionary Martin Luther King, Jr. in the forefront. His passion, leadership and ability to deliver such profoundly moving speeches is just as inspiring today as it was in his time. What has become known as King's "I Have A Dream" speech reminds me how much I owe to him and countless others who sacrificed so much of themselves for my ability to pursue dreams of my own.

  • Eileen Asher: Privacy

    Artist Statement: I enjoy my privacy. I like to be alone to be able to focus or clear my mind; to just relax. I can really appreciate the calmness that a curtain in my window brings."

  • Tabitha Brown: RCM

    Lounge area, with branded decor.

  • Tabitha Brown: RCM

    Artist Statement: What inspired me to make this piece was the fact that I wanted to do something different from the rest of the class. The piece I have done does not require a room and can be placed anywhere, I made it this way so that I did not have to choose and be in one room.

  • Tabitha Brown: RCM

  • Jack Rees: Drumming D's

    Artist Statement: I chose to design d-shaped drums into a drum set because I have a passion for drumming and rock music in general.

  • Jack Rees: Drumming D's

  • Cassandra Goodall: Dog

    Artist Statement: With the topic of "words to live by" I wanted to play with the idea that some of the best words were unspoken ones. They are the words that are left silent in the air of your mind. What better way to depict that than to use man's best friend: the dog.

  • Alexander Grant: JuxtapositioN

    Artist Statement: What inspired me to do my piece in the gallery was the quote that I chose for the one wall. I was also inspired by how people can look at the pieces or the sum of the total pieces to make an image in their head. This is what inspired me to create the J out of N's; some people will see the J first where others will see the N's first.

  • Alexander Grant: JuxtapositioN

  • Brandon Henestofel: Open & Peaceful

    Artist Statement: I was inspired to make my piece open and peaceful. I felt as though since it was on the top of the house, it should be very open and the person in this room should be closer to nature and themselves.

  • Joshua McBee: My Dreams

    Artist Statement: The inspiration of my piece was a mixture. I thought of the song "In My Dreams" by Kid Cudi. Also the scene from the movie Lion King when young Simba saw the constellation of his father Mufasa in the sky at night. I wanted the piece to feel organic and have a "naturey" feel.
