Printmaking Professor Adriane Herman's titled her Fall 2012 SYL class: "Gathering Influences: Collecting, Collections, Collectors, Collectibles" and challenged her students to consider new aspects and audiences of their art.

The class became a community art project at Bayview Heights affordable senior housing community in Portland. Herman, along with her teaching assistant Pilar Nadal, challenged 11 MECA students and 15 Bayview seniors to discuss the objects we collect and why we collect them. 

After prompting conversation with their handmade zines, the students created collagraph prints that were framed and donated to the senior center. 

The class was sponsored by MECA's Public Engagement program.

The following students took part in this unique class:

Anthony Zambrana
Ari Chasan
Emily Martel
Grace Hager
Hannah Hermes
