Integrating one’s family ancestry—the artistic link
Stacey Sheppard (’13) set out to discover why four generations of her family have an artistic bent, including several relatives who supported themselves by their art (doll dress designs, art therapy, photography). In addition to this genealogical quest, Stacey kept a weekly blog, took an art therapy course, and gathered samples of art from each generation as part of her MALS thesis display. Because her work was so well-received, she was granted space at the Lorette Wilmot Library at Nazareth College for an exhibit in the reading room during October 2013. The pictures below are from the Opening Night Reception. Note the artistic cupcakes, made by Stacey—vanilla with peppermint icing, root beer with vanilla icing and a root beer barrel candy, chocolate with chocolate chips.
P.S. Stacey’s colorful 3-D family tree is now permanently displayed on the 3rd floor of the Golisano Academic Center (GAC) outside Room 300.
