Mural to brighten up South
University Avenue area

By Victea Edwards
A new mural in the alleyway between
the Safe Sex Store and Jimmy Johns on
South University Avenue is currently
being painted by high school campers.
This mural aims to beautify the street
and in doing so provides an art course to
pragmatically apply design, said Mark
Tucker, its organizer and the director of
Arts on the Hill, which is also helping to
sponsor materials for the project.
For funding to begin work on the
mural, Tucker said he first spoke to
Nancy Lautenbach, coordinator of
Marketing and Programs with Arts
at Michigan, then walked to see
Maggie Ladd of the South Univer-
sity Area Association.
He added the process was brief, and
that five minutes later Ladd wrote a
check for materials and a few days later
the painting began.
"We'll be painting for six weeks,
there are three groups of students -
one junior-high group and two senior-
high groups. And when all this is com-
pleted it will look like one continuous
mural," Tucker added.
"They have to collaborate well in a
short period of time, they're making this
in only 35 hours," Tucker said.
The high schoolers who are con-
structing the mural belong to an aca-
demic summer camp at the University
called Summer Discovery.
Painting the mural came as a real sur-
prise to high school junior Allison Chod
of St. Louis Country Day School.
Chod said that when she signed
up for the painting and drawing
course, she was expecting some-
thing more traditional.
"I thought it would be individual
painting and I could put a portfolio
together to get into an AP Class at
school," he said.
"But now what I'm getting out of
it is experience painting. ... I'll take
pictures of the wall when I'm done

"I see it everyday. I like
it. I'm not an artist or
anything but its a
whole lot nicer than it
used to be, that is for

and turn that in as part of the portfo-
lio," Chod added.
Tucker echoed that the mural was a
big surprise for most of the Summer
Discovery campers, who, when signing
up for drawing and painting, had
expected a more traditional course.
"The course was mistitled. When
they signed up for it a couple of people
really wanted to do the more traditional
art class. But the ones who stayed
enjoyed the process,"he said.
"I think itsis much more rewarding
than sitting in a studio and figuring it
out for yourself,"Tucker added.

although the course was a surprise, her
experience thus far has been rewarding.
She added that instead of dealing
with a small individual campus the
project allows her to greatly expand
her workspace.
"I've really enjoyed it. It's a cool idea
and not something you normally get to
do in a painting class," Sharp said.
South University Jimmy John's Man-
ager Dan Romm said that even though
he is not directly part of the project, he
has enjoyed the presence of the mural.
"I see it everyday, I like it. I'm not an
artist or anything but its a whole lot
nicer than it used to be, that is for sure,"
Romm added.

ly proper and necessary. I am concerned that the hastily crafted law that
passed the Congress threatens certain constitutional protections that all
Americans have the right to rely upon," he said.
General Attorney John Ashcroft said ina speech at the Office of Domestic Pre-
paredness Conference that the PATRIOT Act has been misunderstood.
"The PATRIOT Act was a long overdue measure to close gaping holes in
the government's ability, responsibly and lawfully, to collect vital intelli-
gence information on criminal terrorists. It updated the law to accommo-
date modern technology, such as cell phones and the Internet. It allows law
enforcement investigators to use the same tools in terrorism that we have
used for years in drug cases and organized crime cases," he said.
Justice Department officials held a forum about the act at Wayne State
University on the same day the ACLU filed its suit.
