Smiling Faces

Title

Smiling Faces

Description

One of the items on display at the Alumni Center Art Exhibit. On 4/16/08, as part of the Day of Remembrance observance, the Holtzman Alumni Center Museum displayed examples of art, crafts, quilts, and other memorabilia contributed since April 16, 2007. This is one of over 60,000 items that will eventually go to Special Collections at Newman Library.

A drawing of the victims. Accompanying this drawing was a letter dated June 28, 2007 and addressed to President Charles Steger in which the artist, Samuel X Holloway #201510, explains that he hopes the drawing can serve as a "tool in creating inspirational projects and raising money". Holloway gave all copy rights for the artwork to Virginia Tech. He was inspired to create the piece after seeing the victims' photos in The Richmond Times newspaper.
