Students seeks funds for thesis project

Written by:


Jeanne Kelly, a candidate for a MFA in Design & Technology is reaching out for help to fund her thesis project. She is a visual fine artist with a background in forensic art, and her project was inspired by the Hyrtl exhibit at the Mütter Museum in Philadelphia, which is a collection of one hundred and thirty-eight human skulls on display in the main gallery. Her project is to reconstruct the likeness of several individuals from their skulls, both two dimensionally and three dimensionally. Her concept then evolved over the months to include a fictional narrative that intertwines the true identities of the eight individuals she is reconstructing. In this fiction, each of the characters are connected to at least two other characters
