Liberty alumnus Stephanie Krom was one of several students featured in the latest edition of “Mashups and Other Collisions in Art and Literature,” a print-on-demand book, featuring a collection of essays, poems, and artwork created by Elmira College students in the 2018 First Year Seminar class.
Krom, a member of the Class of 2018, considered perennial topics of gender stereotypes, love, and war, by reading and comparing literature such as Thornton Wilder’s play The Skin of Our Teeth and Mark Twain’s writings based on his Diaries of Adam and Eve. Additionally, she and her peers viewed and wrote about art from the Elmira College collection and from exhibitions in the campus’s George Waters Gallery. Their own artwork includes magazine collages inspired by the Surrealists as well as re-imagined scenes from Shakespeare’s The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet, using a variation of the graphic novel form.
The complete book can be previewed through Blurb.com, and is available for purchase and digital download.
