New Lounge Near Completion

Jenny Moore Writer-in-Residence Tim Johnson relaxes in the new lounge.
The renovations of the English Department lounge are almost complete. You've got to love a makeover--care of the wonderful Laura Van Biber and Elise Katzif Walker, MA students in Interior Design and members of Project George--that includes mod touches such as knitted "poofs" and Lucite chairs. There's also the amazing wall--not shown in this photo--covered in HudsonPaint chalkboard paint and colorful chalk for messages, doodles, and inspiration.

Next up: a few minor repairs, installation of a couple of wall magazine racks, and the hanging of several pictures, including a print of a circa-1940 Works Progress Administration (WPA) poster by the artist Arlington Gregg. Are you a member?

Look for an announcement soon of our lounge dedication party.
