Mclennan Creates Mural for UA Little Rock Gaming Lounge

Kristal Mclennan of Sherwood, is part of a group of UA Little Rock students who designed an art mural for a gaming lounge in the Donaghey Student Center.

The eight students were part of a class called Mural Painting Practicum that introduces students to the possibilities and practices of mural art. The students involved were Kristen Macchi, Kristal Mclennan, Clara Mitchell, Brianna Gibson, Chandler Smith, Emma Chambers, Julia McPeake, and Savannah Wilcox.

At the beginning of the course, the students were given a prompt to design a mural relevant to gaming, since they already knew the mural would be featured in that room. The proposals were designed digitally with the intent to translate the chosen one into a physical painting that would be developed over the course of the spring semester.

Although each student brought their own uniqueness to the project, class instructor Krista Schoening ultimately decided that Kristal Mclennan's design, in which she incorporated the gaming lounge's pool table balls into planets, was right for the space.
