Art Beat: A Portrait of Romania


 Dru Bailey Chipman (BFA ’07) spent two weeks in Romania during the summer of 2006, giving humanitarian service in a number of orphanages. She came to love the children she now paints with such skill, each of whom she still knows by name.

“Despite how hard their lives have been so far, the children have such a vibrant spirit. They are so happy,” says Chipman. “I wanted to have the paintings be about who they are and not about their sad environment.”
