Cambrian President Peter Lawlor personally congratulated student artists at the Science North reception.

SUDBURY, ON – Students from Cambrian College’s Art and Design Fundamentals and Graphic Design programs have been recognized by Science North for their recent contribution to the facility. Led by Cambrian professor Johanna Westby, a group of nine students created a 12 by 16 foot mural to reflect the theme “Angles and Light.” The artwork has been mounted next to the north entrance of the rock tunnel that connects Science North’s two snowflake-shaped buildings. Its presence reminds visitors and staff of the relationship between science, art, and the imagination.

“Science North is pleased to showcase this large-scale, locally-produced mural, at the entrance to our science centre,” said Guy Labine, Science North CEO. “This installation is a great example of the strong partnerships between Science North and community partners, such as Cambrian College.”

“Cambrian is delighted to have a prominent piece of public art on display in Canada’s second-largest science centre that showcases the talents of our students and builds their professional profile,” said Cambrian College President Peter Lawlor. “Visitors to Science North will have the opportunity to view a remarkable piece of work and, at the same time, get a sense of our students’ outstanding commitment to this community.”

Professor Westby said that voluntary projects like this teach students valuable lessons about collaboration with clients and other artists, as well as philanthropy and project management. “I’m so proud of each of them for rising to the challenge,” said Westby. “Between classes, assignments, jobs, and countless other obligations, the students devoted more than 200 hours to this project. They also fundraised to purchase the majority of the materials, so I am really pleased that their dedication has been recognized and rewarded.”
