The Color Of Flight

From the Daily Item: “Art teacher Wes Wagner and math teacher Charles Keer and their students unveiled ‘The Color of Flight’ in the hallway between the art and math departments. The wall mural, which depicts an eagle flying out of a hallway, uses leading lines and contrasting shapes to create the illusion of space and dimension.

Anamorphic employs a unique form of perspective in which the art can only be viewed properly from one single vantage point. Away from this point, distortion and warped forms create a uniquely abstracted image. As a person walks down the hall away from that vantage tile, the proportions of the mural becomes oblique and exaggerated. The art changes because it is based on a grid system that has tapering geometric proportions.”
