Artist Aquil Virani creates collaborative artwork at Paul Smiths College.

Award-winning artist Aquil Virani’s collaborative “We are all artists” project was unveiled during Paul Smiths College convocation this September. Over the span of seven years, Virani has worked with more than 1,000 first-year students and used his own creativity to create artwork unique to each class. This year’s piece centres the compass as a metaphor for personal goals and priorities; it was featured in the Adirondack Daily Enterprise. See the full piece in the Joan Weill Adirondack Library on campus.
