Art in motion

Colin Christy, a senior sculpture major in the Sam Fox School of Design & Visual Arts, hangs his work at the 14th annual Saint Louis Art Fair last Friday. Christy was one of several students taking part in the fair’s Student Mentoring Program, now in its ninth year. Spearheaded by Ron Fondaw, professor of art, the program aims to prepare university-level art students for careers in the arts by matching them with professionals who work in the same medium. Students did setup and teardown at the fair, interacted with customers and attended the awards ceremony and brunch. In their second year, they get to display their own artwork as Christy did last week.
