The artwork of Science graduate Jennifer Vuong has been named the winner of the Student Services Centre’s ‘Lonely Wall’ competition.

The competition, in late 2013, was both an opportunity for students to create and display their imaginative artwork on campus by painting the ‘Lonely Wall’ in the Student Services Centre, Baldwin Spencer Building and to raise awareness of the Student Service Centre.

 Entries had to encompass student engagement and experiences.

 Ms Vuong won the competition for her distinctive, innovative and brightly coloured creation, the Thinking Minds.

 She was awarded a $250 voucher from Eckersley’s Arts and Crafts to purchase art supplies.

 Ms Vuong said she was honoured to win the competition and have her mural featured on the wall.

 “The Lonely Wall competition provided an amazing opportunity for me to showcase one of my pieces,” she said.

 “It's definitely the biggest project I have ever done, so I am thoroughly grateful the University has given me this opportunity.

 “One of the things I like most about my studies at the University of Melbourne is the breadth component integrated into our degrees. It's a great way to explore other interests whilst obtaining credit for it.”
