Infinite Possibilities

Collaborative Piece Shows College's Artistic Side

Over the course of a week, 54 Pennsylvania College of Technology students collaborated with artist-in-residence Antonio Puri to create "Infinite Possibilities," a piece of artwork installed permanently in the Student and Administrative Services Center lobby. The piece includes 100 canvases painted by students, as well as 39 shadow boxes that students transformed with easy-to-find objects to represent each academic department.
