New to the Gallery Wall: End-of-semester beauty while you walk though the halls!

Please enjoy our Kehinde Wiley-inspired pattern pieces! Feel free to take a powerful selfie in front of the Gallery Wall!

 Pattern is a Principle of Design. Repetition is when an artist uses one shape, line, or color again and again in the same order. Pattern is when an artist combines multiple shapes, lines, or colors again and again in the same order. Rhythm is when an artist combines multiple shapes, lines, or colors again and again but not in the same order. Please look at our Kehinde Wiley-inspired pattern pieces and see a variety of repetition, pattern, and rhythm. Wiley uses beautiful, wallpaper-inspired patterns to richly decorate his elegant and powerful portraits. We studied Kehinde Wiley’s art to learn about representation, power, privilege, historical/cultural/personal connections, art analysis, and Principles of Design.

Special thanks to Isaiah Roybal, Morgan Arthur, Kayleigh Duran, and Riley Nyght for posing as “tableau vivants” in the style of Kehinde Wiley’s models.
