Art Reflected

Everyone who comes to the Quilt Surface Design Symposium ends up taking several photos of the big red ART sculpture. It is the central landmark on the campus of the Columbus College of Art and Design. Walking to the auditorium, I happened to turn around just as the sun dipped behind the dorm. The mirrored ART floated in the windows, along with the clouds. But its feet were planted right in front of me, solid in the lawn. For a short time each year, we all gather as students to master new skills and reflect on our lives as artists. Today I am reflecting on how our surroundings can inspire us and induce creativity.
