Humanities and Letters Decks Its Halls
The Faculty of Humanities
and Letters (FHL) has started decorating its corridors with art created
by Bilkent Fine Arts students. In February, FHL hung eleven silkscreen
prints (serigraphy), each by a different student, in its main corridor.
The young artists are Nevra
Bilge, Aysen Doğan, Efe Eke, Atacan Kasal, Nimet Kurşuncu, Işıl Öndeş,
Özgen Özcihan, Ardan Özmenoğlu, Ceylan Sağdıç, Nalan Sezginer and Ümit
Tarık Yaşar. They produced the prints for the course "Introduction to
Printmaking (Silkscreen Prints)" taught by Dr. Ilgım Veryeri Alaca in
the Faculty of Fine Arts. Dr. Veryeri personally supervised the hanging
of her students' prints, and also donated one of her own works to IBEF.

silence for Atatürk and a formal signing of the special visitors' book.
The Student Council President Erkan Mert Yilmaz
