Gallery: Dr. Patricia Sayre – On Pilgramage
Philosophy professor Patricia Sayre ’16 earned her bachelor of fine arts (BFA) in May 2016. Her senior show, “On Pilgrimage”, was comprised of double portraits — one figurative and one metaphorical — of art faculty who served as trustworthy guides in her 12-year pilgrimage to earn the degree. Sayre divided the nine professors into three groups — “Foundations”, “The Heart of the Matter”, and “Fresh Presence”.
“Foundations” refers to those professors who taught Sayre her foundational art courses.
