Analyzing Robert Frost’s poem Mending Wall sparked these design proposals investigating social barriers and boundaries. A Call to Artists was issued to the class seeking design proposals for artwork to be displayed on the construction fences on the rapidly expanding campus at the University of Washington Bothell. Students formed groups based on social barriers they were interested in presenting as a catalyst to inspire deeper conversations across campus.
To broaden their exploration of fences and boundaries in society, Community Based Learning and Research at the UW Bothell arranged guest lecturers from Mary’s Place Center for Homeless Women, University Beyond Bars, Full Life Care and One America.
