17 Fountain St. NW is two buildings put together.
A Kendall success story from each major.
The views of the city from the elevators in the Amway Grand and JW Marriott hotels. The glass tower elevators at the Amway look east over the downtown. The elevator balconies at the JW look west over the river. Also, there are awesome views from the roof level of several parking structures downtown – particularly the Louis-Campau Ramp, overlooking Rosa Parks Circle.
Reduction woodcut. I like the graphic, out-lined style I can achieve with woodcuts. I like the process too: from the initial sketch to carving out the wood in layers to rolling on ink and sending it through the press, all in anticipation of peeling back the paper and seeing the final result.
Posters for the People: Art of the WPA. A review says this book is "essential reading for artists, designers, collectors of Americana, and anyone interested in United States history." Agreed! Each poster is a study in composition, color theory, printing process, and advertising – as well as a glimpse into life in the 1930s and 40s. (By the way, there's a copy in the Kendall Library.)
Inconsistency. Some prospective students feel the need to show a wide variety of media. Therefore, they end up presenting really strong pieces with really weak pieces. If pencil is your strongest medium, then present ten awesome pencil drawings, not one good pencil drawing and an unimpressive mix of acrylic paintings, cut-paper collages, and pastel drawings.
