“Sitters” have been taking over my apartment as I cut out fifty of the little slumped-acrylic sculptures for centerpieces for Gala 2018, the largest “FUNdraising” event for the Newman Catholic Student Center at the University of Iowa. Next I’ll be painting the figures. The students posed as models for them and will help me with the centerpieces, which will be sold at the gala to support the Newman Center’s programs.
Update: Gala 2018 was held on April 21 — thank you to everyone who helped support the Newman Center! See the post Students in the stands for a photo of the finished “crowd,” complete with paint.
