Student work selected

JennaMallJenna Mall, a Bethany College student from Clay Center, Kansas, has been selected to display her artwork in downtown Lindsborg as part of the 2016 Messiah Festival of the Arts.

Mall is a studio art major who is concentrating in sculpture and ceramics. For this installation, she has created a life-sized human from steel sections that were welded together. Her sculpture is sitting upon a stack of books to represent how stories can activate one’s imagination. Mall has left the form as the steel structure to allow the viewer to use their imagination to see what the person would look like. She wants to spark the imagination of the viewer and let their own creativity and understanding finish off the piece.

Her artwork will be on display in the window of the Good Merchant in downtown Lindsborg beginning March 18 through April 1. Additionally, the Bethany Art Department will host the Messiah Festival Juried Student Art Show at Mingenback Gallery on Bethany’s campus beginning March 18 and running through April 1. There will be an opening reception and award ceremony on March 20 at 1 p.m.
