Chairs that Tell a Story!

In October, the University at Albany challenged more than 25 area schools to artistically depict a favorite literary classic on one of the University’s original 1960’s library oak chairs.  Two MCS students  accepted the challenge! The two have been working diligently to transform the library chair into a magnificent work of art illustrating detailed imagery from Homer’s Greek epic poem The Odyssey.  An article about the event can be viewed here.
