Description: 

Art@Work is a collaboration between Peckham, Inc., the Cornerstone & Residential Experience (CoRe) at the College of Engineering, and RCAH.

Students from RCAH and Engineering courses have worked alongside team members of Peckham, Inc., to complete a major art wall installation for the organization's northwest Lansing factory. The RCAH and College of Engineering have been collaborating with Peckham, Inc., one of the largest and most ethnically diverse vocational rehabilitation communities in the United States, on Art@Work, a 40' x 200' mosaic of individual paintings. The community unveiling of the installation's first phase took place on February 23, 2013, and additions to the wall will continue in the upcoming academic year.

A digital representation of the installation is available online, complete with client and student vignettes and photos from the creation of the wall.

The Fall 2013 MSU Alumni Magazine featured the Art@Work project and perspectives from Peckham, Inc., College of Engineering, RCAH, and other community members. Click here for a PDF of the article. Click here for an online version of the article.
