Centaur of Gravity

Art major races to install thesis project in Eliot Circle before deadline.

By Anna Mann | May 8, 2019

Sparks fly as art major Akim Farrow ’19 races against the clock to install his monumental thesis project—a massive centaur made of steel—in Eliot Circle before the deadline of his thesis orals. The centaur plays a significant role in the Greek mythology Akim read for Hum 110 and is also an ironic comment on the notorious equestrian statue of Robert E. Lee in Charlottesville. All work must cease by the time he meets with his orals board, which convenes at 1 p.m. Good luck, Akim!
