In her 2016 Senior Capstone Art Project, F&M alumna Alejandra Zavala '16 created the series Hasta la Raíz, a photographic project prompted by the 2014 abduction of 43 students in Mexico. Zavala gathered students from the F&M community and photographed them with overlaying images and maps representative of locations in Mexico that these F&M students identify with. The series was purchased with funds from the Art & Art History Department and President's Office. Images copyright protected. See her whole project here: https://spark.adobe.com/page/cNOS3xRoxn0aS/

Happy Slow Art Day! Slowly looking at a work of art for five to ten minutes can encourage you to notice new details or gain a new understanding of the work. Prof. Aleci's Learning to See course embraced slow looking as part of a blended course this week! Students on campus paired up with remote learners, describing art the "zoomers" had to imagine. We hope you are inspired to do some slow looking of your own!
