Recently, Textiles, Merchandising, and Fashion Design alumna Audio Helkuik participated in Omaha Fashion for the fourth time, introducing her latest collection entitled “monoprismatic.”  TMFD (Communications) major Averi Melcher caught up with her to talk about her designs, inspiration, and current projects:

            Like her previous collections, “monoprismatic” was part of the avant-garde show, but this year she decided to step out of her niche of dark colored garments and push her designs to a new level by utilizing fabrics that were saturated in an array of colors.  Wonderful monochromatic ensembles in bright blues, reds, and yellows resulted from her efforts. To complete the look, Audio topped them with one-of-a-kind hats and over-sized, thick-rimmed glasses.

Leverton Art Project

A new mural will soon be completed in Ruth Leverton Hall on East Campus. The mural wraps around the whole first floor of Leverton in living color. It was drawn and painted freehand, which has been of great interest to NHS faculty, staff and students. People in the building are interested in the daily progress of the mural, and ask many questions of the artist, who is now accustomed to it. Lincoln-based Mural Mural Graphics designed the project.
