"We Are Beckman Catholic" Mural
Posted on 03/03/2020
Isabelle Kluesner '21, created a wall installation that exemplifies the quality of education and religious education at Beckman Catholic. Inspired by the Beckman Catholic logo, she wanted to include the name of every person attending and of those serving the students of Beckman Catholic as well.
After making a small model of the logo, Isabelle used a graphing technique to scale the project and the size of the butterfly to be used. After accessing the names of students grades 7-12 and the teachers and staff who serve the Beckman Catholic community, she began cutting out over 550 butterflies to contain the names of everyone involved with Beckman Catholic. An additional 200 butterflies were cut out to create a visual fill.
Isabelle then set about filling the 6.5 X 6.5 foot space with gold, white, and various greens to create a cohesive design. After one month of design, planning and installation, the “We are Beckman Catholic” butterfly mural is complete! It can be seen upon entry into the school and reminds the viewer that Beckman Catholic is made up of many! Isabelle's art teacher is Michael Wade. #WeAreBeckmanCatholic
