The Art History Department would like to thank all faculty, staff and students who knit and crocheted the Makerspace scarf that now adorns Saint Peter Canisius in the Quadrangle. Last spring, the scarf kept Petey the Griffin warm. In December and January, our faculty, staff and students voted for its new location.
The Art History Department appreciates the work of the facilities crew for placing it on the statue. We thank Taheri and Todoro PC for its support of Makerspace events on campus throughout 2018 and 2019. We are planning this semester’s activities this week.
Makerspace is a place where students can create physical or digital items in common work spaces using shared resources and equipment. Makerspaces are designed to be a mechanism for encouraging students to explore and learn outside the classroom.
