Viola Yu '18

Viola Yu

A new two-part art installation in Mann Library, created by Viola Yu ’18, celebrates the connections among soil, oceans and the health of the planet in paintings and a mural.

Yu, an ESS major in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, completed the paintings – abstract art representing terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems and depictions of animals and human faces – as the capstone project for her minor in horticulture with a focus in the botanical arts.

“The goal is to show how beautiful underground and underwater can be, and then to show the diversity of the world and why we should save it,” Yu said.
