Did your mother ever tell you that sometimes sorry isn't good enough? UA School of Art senior John Richey took this advice to heart when he created his Rotunda Gallery Exhibit on display this morning. Beginning at 8 a.m., the third floor of the Memorial Student Union will be decorated with Richey's oil, acrylic, and two-dimensional pieces of art. He attempts to explain "miscommunication" to his audience through his use of bright colors and timid strokes. For specifics regarding Richey's past projects or a list of future exhibits, please contact Christina Lieberman at 621-6142.
