An exciting new feature to the annual event are items made by Facilities and Campus Services from recycled Wake Forest products! Palmer/Piccolo bed frames have been converted into Adirondack-style chairs, flooring from Reynolds Gym has been transformed into a table, and wooden trivets are designed from the beloved magnolia trees. Products will be on display as silent auction items (some with minimum pricing), with bids taken until 4 p.m. At the close of the event, those with the highest bids will be notified of their winning bids and arrangements made for item pickup. Proceeds from these items will benefit the United Way.

Law library specialist leaves her mark on the walls of Worrell

swenson.mural.300x175Law library specialist Holly Swenson is a designer and artist who, in addition to her other responsibilities, also helps produce the law school’s alumni magazine, The Jurist.

When construction began in the basement of the Worrell Professional Center, Swenson saw the opportunity to use one of the walls as a canvas to practice painting a mural. The result is a modern take on a portion of Michaelangelo’s “Creation of Adam.”

Read more about the mural in a Q&A with Swenson written by School of Law Communications student intern, Rachel Wallen (’17)

Visit the law school library’s service desk for help in finding the mural, which will be available for viewing through the fall semester.
