CEE sophomore Connie Lu named an MIT Art Scholar

Written by:

Fifteen undergraduates, including CEE sophomore Connie Lu, have been selected for the MIT Arts Scholars program for the 2009-10 academic year. They will join the 15 Arts Scholars currently in the program, which brings together students to explore the diverse arts available at MIT and around Boston, and to interact with fellow students, faculty artists and other experts in the art world. “I enjoy pencil and charcoal sketching, acrylic painting, screenprinting, and I’ve dabbled in film and digital photography,” said Lu, a IE student from Sudbury, Mass. “I am especially interested in the reuse of interesting old objects and fabrics, and like to dress in secondhand clothing. In my own work, I am most inspired by the relationships and current events that surround me, and would like to learn how to convey my emotional reactions to these relationships and events through art.”
