Horizons: A Student and Faculty Collaboration

Horizons

‘Horizons’ in the College Service Center, first floor.

Horizons is now available for viewing in the entryway of the CSC.

Marie Weichman proposed this four-panel, mixed-media piece that highlights the major areas of our Art program at OC.  Three upper level students were identified from Ceramics, Drawing and Painting, but the art department had no one in Sculpture who could produce the piece, as a result Marie volunteered.  Another major area of study in the Art program is Design which is represented by the entire, four panel composition.

The concept was to depict a landscape that communicates “horizons,” “journey,” and our geographic area, the Olympic Mountains, as well as the college name, Olympic College, (hence, the mountains).  Marie found the image online and appropriated it for this project by dividing it into four equal sections.  Each section was created using a method representing the classes offered by OC’s Art Program:  Drawing, Painting, Ceramics, and Sculpture with Design represented by the total composition.  The final image is of the Olympic mountains with a road leading the viewer to the horizon.

The concept was to depict an Olympic Mountain landscape that communicates “horizons,” “journey,” and “Pathways” as a metaphor for the process of education and goal achievement.  The Olympic Mountains not only represents our regional identity, but also reflects the name of our college.
