Josie Elicker was at Zena Fest as a member of the installation art class
Zena Fest is an annual celebration that takes place at Willamette's Zena property each Parents' Weekend. This year's festivities included a contribution from the installation art class, aimed at encouraging visitors to have meaningful interactions with the land around them. The group utilized Zena's variety of plant life to create a scavenger hunt, complete with hidden treasures for eagle-eyed wanderers to find. The installation included a number of "fairy houses" whose locations were marked on maps handed out to passers-by. Remnants from the installation are currently on display in the Student Gallery in the art building.
