Robin Wilt (BFA 71)

“Elephant in the Room, A Response to Sandy Hook” U. of M. Art Alumni Show 2013, Slusser Gallery, U. of M. Art School, Ann Arbor There was hope something would get done about Gun Control in America with the 2012 mass killing of kindergarten children at Sandy Hook Elementary School. And by the Summer of 2013, nothing had happened. The Elephant was still in the room. And the Elephant is still there.

This work is featured as part of Future Former: An Exhibition of Alumni Work. This exhibition honors the creative work and careers of all Stamps School alumni, creates an aspirational connection between generations of U-M artists and designers and current Stamps students, and inspires reflection during the university's Bicentennial year.
