Pattern is ever-present in nature — from ripples on the water, to bright leaves scattering, to layers of the earth — making it a compelling medium to build awareness of the importance of biodiversity to the vital process of pollination. Roof's fascination with pattern began with family quilts and continued in her focused study of pattern design history, as well as exploration of pattern creation methods. In this large installation piece, her patterns call the viewer to take specific actions to conserve habitat for the significant pollinators wild, native bees.

The Mark A. Chapman Gallery on the first floor of Willard Hall opened in 2005. Cheryl Mellenthin and Mark Chapman funded a complete renovation of the former Willard Hall Gallery, increasing the exhibition space to over 1,400 square feet along with 400 square feet dedicated to exhibition preparation and kitchen facilities. The Department of Art hosts BFA and MFA student exhibitions in the gallery as part of graduation requirements each semester. The technology friendly gallery serves not only exhibition purposes, but also provides a location for an active Visiting Artist lecture program.
