CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. -- Steady rain might have postponed the more flashy demonstrations planned for Wilson College's Arts Day, but nature compensated by creating its own art of swirling mud and carved pathways.
As the gravel driveways ran with rivers of liquid earth and the drops played a calming interlude on the concrete Wednesday, students trickled into various buildings to express their rainy day blues in art.
"Will the rain ever stop?" one student asked as her galoshes splashed through a large puddle.
Rain cannot stop art, said Samantha May, president of the student art club, People's Republic of Art.
Letting a large sheet of glass crash into hundreds of pieces, May said the broken shards would become beautiful mosaics.
Behind Lenfest Commons is a plain gray wall that May said will soon sparkle with the mosaics.
"We have to look at that wall everyday," she said. "So we wanted to make it into something beautiful."
