Student Engagement Photos
Throughout the second and third floors of the HUB-Robeson Center is an ever-changing collection of photographs demonstrating the various forms of student engagement present throughout the Penn State community. Ranging from the Greek Sing competition to the annual Movin’ On festival, to Leadershape and beyond, this collection of photographs highlights the many ways in which Penn State students engage with each other and the community. This collection is updated periodically. Anyone interested in obtaining a copy of any of the images in this collection is encouraged to contact the HUB-Robeson Galleries.
The complete collection of annual Central Pennsylvania Festival of the Arts posters, displayed in the Hetzel Lounge and Library in the HUB-Robeson Center, continues to grow each summer. For more than 30 years Penn State Professor of Visual Arts Lanny Sommese has designed these posters, and although he retired from Penn State in the spring of 2014, he has no plans to retire from designing the Festival’s annual poster.
MLK Posters and Buttons
On the second floor of the HUB-Robeson Center near the THON and SPA offices is the ever-growing collection of Martin Luther King Jr. Commemoration posters and buttons. Each year a winner is chosen from a pool of entries by Penn State graphic design students. The winning design is then produced into the posters and buttons seen here.
Completed in 1992, these five murals represent African American, American Indian, Hispanic/Latinx American, Asian American, and other cultures. They are now displayed on a rotating basis on the first floor of the HUB-Robeson Center, near Heritage Hall.
Conceived as a cross-cultural experience for the Penn State community, the Multicultural Mural Project was sponsored by the Office of Student Affairs in collaboration with the School of Visual Arts. The five murals were created by students from the School of Visual Arts, University Student Advisory Board, Asian American Student Coalition, Black Caucus, Latino Caucus, Native American Student Association, and the Puerto Rican Student Association.
Umbrella Man and Barcode Family
These sculptures, donated by artist Clifford Lamoree in 2005, periodically move throughout the first floor of the HUB-Robeson Center. Life-sized and free from identifying-features, these sculptures explore the loss of identity and privacy in an ever increasing world of technology and industrialization.
