Marc Peralta, a sophomore visual arts major, started the Urban Art Club.
The club’s mission is to unify the campus by using art forms such as graffiti, hip hop and rap to engage students to express themselves while creating works of art.
“Within this club, we plan to show how creative and expressive we as a generation can be,” Peralta said.
The club’s plans for the year include having a number of events, making a video showing students creating art work, rapping in a group or displaying writings and drawings. The club aims to look at artists who have used the media to express poverty in urban communities, not only as a form of entertainment, but also to see how each medium was used to fight for change.
