Last week, you may have noticed eerily realistic homeless figures peeking out from the bushes or huddled in a corner in and around the Visual Arts building and the Dome. These figures were the result of an art project done by Mercedes Zamora, a senior Art student. When asked about her work, she stated,
"The intention of my art piece was to help bring awareness about the rise of people living on the streets. Specifically eastern Bakersfield, since it seems to be a normal thing to see homeless people wandering around the area.
As for my inspiration, it was from spotting a homeless man laying on the freezing pavement with only a thin blanket to protect him from the cold. I know I can't solve the problem but I hope that at least addressing the issue could help a bit."
