Laura Holesh, ’16, and Olivia Heeb, ’19, lie by the Allegheny College compass that they decorated with flower petals in the style of a mandala on Thursday, Sept. 24, .
“The art assignment was to create something ephemeral, made by nature and destroyed by nature,” said Holesh. “I’ve been up since like six, working on this.”
Holesh collected the flowers from around Meadville. “I tried to pick the dying flowers and then I picked the petals off,” she said.
Holesh’s setup attracted the gaze of several students, and even one participant.
“I was walking to my math exam and I saw this thing. When I came back, she was still here so I helped to set up and lay down petals,” said Heeb. “And now we’re just kind of hanging out.”
