Hide these lights under a bushel

Can even the ugliest object generate aesthetic pleasure or interest?

Students in a class taught by visual arts professors Rod Strickland and Zeke Moores are finding out. A course assignment for the students in Studio Practice and Ideas: Space involves the creation of an “ugly” lamp.

The exhibition of their works is currently on display in the LeBel Building’s SoVA Projects gallery.
