Friends at UCSD
Hello, my name is Melissa Castro, and I am a senior, studio art major at UCSD. I transferred here from a San Diego community college. I was born and raised in San Diego, and I have made art all my life. One day, I plan on becoming an art teacher.
This piece is more of a positive take on the climate at UCSD. I have made so many friends while attending this school even though as a transfer student, I have spent less time here. The art department is a very tight knit community and I feel very close to my peers. Though there are many possible institutional critiques I could have focused on for this project, I chose to do something more positive in nature.
