Introducing: Makayla Binter ’20


Thought-provoking images adorn four wooden panels that sit adjacent to Chambers Building and within sight of residence halls that face the heart of campus. They are the brainchild of Makayla Binter ’20, a biology and studio art double major and record-holding heptathlete. The Mural Panel Project, funded through Projects for Peace and Spike! grants, is designed to engage the college community around issues of social inequality. Conversations with students, staff and faculty provided the artistic inspiration for the project’s final form. Binter labored through the dog days of summer to bring her vision to life, logging countless hours in the late afternoon sun. Passersby are invited to interact with the panels, and some have scrawled messages and made drawings with the chalk Binter leaves at the site for just that purpose.
