An Immersive Art + the Environment Experience

This page chronicles the work completed during the installation of a mural project at the Meadville Medical Center’s Medical Arts Building during the summer of 2017 in Meadville, PA. The project was a collaboration between Allegheny College students Nayana Pratt and Gretchen Wood and their professor Amara Geffen with much help and input from the Meadville Medical Center (MMC) staff and board of directors.
What follows is a personal, first-hand account of the project’s progression and may not be a complete representation of every aspect of this project as there were MANY different components to this project – too many to list here. Instead, this account takes a look at the author’s perspective (G. Wood) and includes many of the projects I was either directly and deeply involved with or projects from others that naturally relate to the progression of the narrative of this project overview. Please Enjoy!
