Every semester, students, faculty and the public gather for ULM’s Art Crawl.

The Art Crawl showcases various artworks from students and faculty.

Bry Hall featured art by local high school students as well as students here at ULM.

Walker Hall featured art by ULM students and faculty. The dean’s conference room featured photos by photographer Leela Devi and poems by students and faculty.

Several members of the cast of the spring musical “Pippin” performed at the Walker art gallery.

For the first time ever, the advanced studios in Stubbs Hall were open to the public.

They were located on the second floor of Stubbs.

In advanced studios, Kaile Finies had a corner featuring some of her artwork.

Finies’ table featured class projects including teacups, saucers and flowers made from cardboard and a series of paintings.

Finies’ said Advanced Studios is a space for art students who work beyond class time and store their works.

“Basically, it’s where we think and create.”

Finies’ is a sophomore fine arts major with a concentration in painting.

Finies’ self-portrait was a class project focusing on identity.

Her class had to create a superhero based on their identity. Her identity was based on her connection to the ocean.

“The ocean can be a very beautiful thing to look at, but it is also very dangerous,” Finies said.

Her portrait highlighted the horizon of the ocean.

“You can’t really tell where the horizon ends,” she said.

Finies’ self-portrait was “more of a warrior goddess type.”

Her painting was a woman wearing a crown and a long flowing yellow dress.

She stood on a cliff and faced the ocean.

Finies said the environment represented her home in Bonaire, a small island in the Caribbean, two islands east of Aruba.

Katelyn Vaughan, a sophomore graphic design major, worked at the Walker Gallery during the event.

She had two artworks featured: a figure drawing and a geometric drawing.

Vaughan’s favorite artworks included her own drawing of a hyena.

“The event’s turnout was pretty good,” Vaughan said.

“It was nice that the choir performed at the beginning of the event.”
