Little by little, UK’s newest art piece is nearing completion.
Over three days last week, students passing through William T. Young Library stopped to contribute a few brushstrokes to a paint-by-number mural depicting the library on a lovely fall day.
A timelapse video recorded by the Student Media Depot shows the scene coming slowly to life, one block of color at a time.
As reported by the Kentucky Kernel, the experience was a soothing study break and an opportunity to contribute to a work that will soon find a permanent home on campus.
If you didn’t get a chance to make your mark at Young, the final touches will be added to the mural at the Student Activity Board’s Crunch Brunch event on Wednesday, Dec. 6 from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. at the Gatton Student Center.
As for where the mural will one day proudly hang? We may be a little biased, but we think it ought to live here at Young. Who doesn’t love a picture of a building hanging inside the building it depicts? We promise we won’t cover up Storm Cat.
