Hyunseok Shim ’08

Part of Meredith Thompson ’08’s senior thesis — an installation on view in April and May at the Lewis Center for the Arts, above with inset detail at left — reflected the time she spent as a teacher and artist in Puerto Rico, where she drew cityscapes and landscapes in Old San Juan. With reggaeton music — hip-hop-influenced Spanish music — playing in the background, and a collage of her paintings and drawings on the wall, her exhibit, says Thompson, who majored in visual arts, reflected what she sees as the negative influences of the United States on Puerto Rican culture.
