“It was an opportunity to create a provocative piece to speak to the uncertainty that Generation Z students are feeling at this moment,” UM Assistant Professor Robert Platt said. “They are pretty anxious and confused and overwhelmed.”
Platt worked with 19 art students to create the 4‑foot-by-5-foot canvas that is made up of 20 stretched canvasses. The students were part of an undergraduate class that explores color theory, value of color, saturation and muted color.
