Each year, the Granoff hosts a mural competition to fill the main entryway. This year, Francesca Capone’s design was chosen from among many promising submissions. Francesca is an artist, poet, and currently a Literary Art MFA candidates in Cross Disciplinary Writing at Brown.
In celebration of Brown's 250th anniversary, Francesca chose to highlight the Literary Arts Department. She would specifically like to honor Rosmarie and Keith Waldrop, whose creative and academic presence has been immeasurably important within the university and at large. Francesca conceived of this mural by choosing a particular poem by the Waldrops and treating it as a paintbrush. Using digital media, she repeated the poem 250 times across, in a single stroke-like gesture. She selected the poem Light Travels, a piece that Rosmarie and Keith wrote in collaboration.
View the mural now through the end of the semester in the main entryway at the Granoff.
