Mending Wall Project

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 WomenUniversity Beyond BarsFull Life Care and One America.
