Almost every year we’re blown away by some of the work by senior art majors at Colorado College and this year is no exception. Eleanor Anderson’s self-described 2.5-dimensional embroidered fabric prints combine a Bauhaus aesthetic with inflences ranging from Jean Gumpper and Mary Chenoweth to Anni Albers. Not surprisingly, the images in the slide show don’t do the work justice and you should stop by and see them for yourself during business hours in the atrium at Packard Hall on the Colorado College campus through the end of the week.

    Thanks Eleanor & Big Something! Can you show the images true to scale next time possibly?

  10. Jim Gass says:

    I mean actual size. I love the work but I can’t tell how big it all is! Could you include dimensions? If you put something in the pic like a clock or a watch then we’d know the basic dimensions, too. Thanks!

  11. Jim Gass says:

    or a glove.

  12. Mary Stroh Henderson says:

    This is wonderful…
