FSU Art faculty Anne Stagg has given her 3D Foundations student a timely and challenging assignment. The assignment is focused on the upcoming hiring of our next FSU President. For this assignment. The students were split into 2 groups and tasked with the following: to design and build a job candidate for the FSU president position out of cardboard and write an accompanying platform speech.
The cardboard candidates are larger than life (minimum 3′ head) and each of their platform speeches is about 10-13 minutes long. Their job talks will highlight what the student teams have discovered and deemed as important issues in the upcoming election. At this point, the heads are almost built and the students are honing their speeches.
They plan for the cardboard candidates to deliver their speeches near the fountain at Wescott at 1:15 pm on Thursday, July 24th.
