“Diversity” is one of two new murals hanging in the Dimitry Building on the Lawrence campus.

Students in digital photography classes at Northern Essex Community College have created two new wall murals for the Dimitry Building on Northern Essex’s Lawrence campus as part of a service learning project.

Students were tasked with photographing people or objects that represented the themes of diversity and/or library patronage. In all, 229 black and white photos were submitted by 20 students.

The photos featured in the murals were chosen by the campus community. “The Library” adorns a wall outside the information literacy lab. At 12 feet by 6 feet, it features eight photographs and the Jorge Luis Borges quote: “I have always imagined that paradise will be a kind of library.”

On the other side of the building, “Diversity” is composed of 59 photographs and a Carlos Fuentes quote, “Recognize yourself in he or she who are not like you or me.”

Northern Essex students who participated include: Amanda Burnett, April Campano, Luis Chavez, Emily Clark, Danielle Derderian, Susan Earnshaw, Noah Greenstein, Jordan Gustave, David Langan, Pamela Larcome, Yelimar Maisonet, Autumn Markey, George Medelinskas, Erin Murray, Tyler Peck, Justin Rolon, Ren Santiago, Taylor Treadwell, Harrison Wall, and Austin Wells.
