Radford University Welcomes Students By Making Unique Artwork With A Puzzle.

New students in the College of Visual and Performing Arts (CVPA) participated in a community learning experience to kick off the new academic year.

The CVPA organizes a team-building activity that involves students working together to create a work of art during Quest, which is Radford University’s orientation for incoming students. Last year, Quest students did the activity Paint Like Pollock, where students created artwork in Pollock’s style on a blank canvas. This year, students created a puzzle, where each individual student painted their own abstract design on a blank puzzle piece. The completed puzzle was assembled and hung in CVPA Dean Margaret Devaney’s office.

A blank 200-piece puzzle was the canvas – which was inspired by the work of New York artist Tim Kelly. Kelly’s project, called “The Puzzle Art Installation and Collaborative Project,” has the artist creating canvas from puzzle pieces. Various organizations paint 24” x 24” foam puzzle pieces that depict a meaningful story, which are later placed in the puzzle.

“They were very excited to do this project,” Oliver said. “They’re able to meet and talk to their peers in a casual environment.”
