The Chair Project: Student Art in the Vera Bracken Library

The Vera Bracken Library is currently hosting projects that were produced by the students in the ARFA 305 class. The works are located in the library's Reference Collection.

The students of ARFA 305 were asked to design a chair that combines their own aesthetic with that of a contemporary, award-winning architect, using a specific building as their inspiration. They then built a half-size prototype of this chair. Each of the works is accompanied by a photograph of the original building of inspiration.

If you cannot make it into the library, you can checkout the impressive pieces in the slideshow [enlarge the slideshow to discover more about the each piece and the artists]:
