When a group of students had an Art Attack on campus in 1984, there was no need to call the SAVAC ambulance. The art majors, under Professor Emeritus Nick D’Innocenzo, were beautifying campus buildings with colorful murals.
“It was a very exciting project to work on,” remembers Amy Gingold Horwitz ’86, one of the Art Attack crew who also wrote an Oswegonian article about the project. “It was really wonderful that the campus was concerned about bringing out some environmental art at that time and giving funding to that project.”
Upon hearing that many of the murals still stand, the Albany-area resident commented, “It’s wonderful that they have preserved them — it’s fantastic!”
While the murals still bring pleasure to current visitors to campus, for Horwitz they’re a reminder of “an exciting time to be part of the Art Department in Oswego.”
