Art reflects students' fond family memories

Wingate University art student Will Roper stands next to a lamp he made in Marilyn Hartness's ceramics class as part of an assignment to create a piece of art that reflects memories of a family trip. The base of the lamp represents the natatorium building where swimming competitions were held at the Beijing Summer Olympics. Roper, who is a junior studying art and psychology, is a former competitive swimmer. He travelled to Bejing with his father to watch the swimming competition.
