AUK Students Promote Environmental Conservation at REUSE 2014

The American University of Kuwait (AUK) will be participating in the REUSE Recycled Art Competition held at the Avenues Mall between 9-11 January.

During the exhibition, twelve AUK students will showcase their artwork. The artworks are made of reused or re-purposed materials that promote environmental conservation. Most of the artwork has been created in Art and Graphic Design Department Professor George Bauer's courses, however any AUK student could enter work.

The participating artwork was selected based on a competition held last month at AUK. The finalists will compete against other local universities next week for the Kuwait grand prize, which will be awarded to the most creative and well produced exhibited work. The winner(s) will be determined through public voting at the exhibit.

The AUK delegation, led by Professor William Andersen of the Art and Graphic Design Department, will consist of the following 12 students:

  • Jumana Al-Refei - Old is Gold
  • Mohammed Al Hamad - Caffeinated Light
  • Ahmed A Mohammed - Robot Attack Elite Force
