Rumor has it that the Art Organization of Kenyon is looking to desuburbanize the NCAs with some murals. While I appreciate the sentiment, the art history minor within my soul cringes at the possibility of hearts, stars and unicorns adorning the currently Stepford-esque North Campus housing.
Since AOK was interested in Social Justice, maybe look at the politically charged works of Diego Rivera.
Another thought is using satirical street art, à la Banksy.
Maybe take some inspiration from Manav Gupta’s famous and ecologically friendly Tree of Life Mural, completed in 2010.
Or the illusionary murals of John Pugh.
There are so many more, but the point is that there are a lot of ways to decorate a building and we can only hope that the Art Association of Kenyon will be as daring and bold as these muralists when they petition to decorate the NCAs.
