Michael Hersrud, Assistant Professor

Working in collaboration with Minneapolis-based visiting artists Robin Schwartzman and Tom Loftus, VCUQatar graphic design students and faculty created a unique ‘artist mini-golf’ course which will be open for play during Tasmeem 3ajeeb!.

Considering the American pastime from a fresh perspective in Qatar, students looked at how materials, narrative and form work together to affect the game-play experience. Small teams engaged in a rigorous design process that moved from conceptual ideation to the final production of a 9-hole course over a five-week period.
