Sophia Ainslie “In Person”

College of Arts, Media and Design lecturer Sophia Ainslie and a group of her students painted a popular campus space in the lobby of Ryder Hall. Ainslie, a painter represented by Gallery Naga, was commissioned to create this installment in Northeastern’s Public Art Initiative—a mural in Ryder Hall titled “In Person.” Ainslie planned on incorporating 16 colors into the mural, which, she said, would help represent the relationship between body and landscape, a theme the artist has explored in the past. To help her paint the mural, she recruited four students from her 2D Foundation course as well as a student from China studying at her studio.
