Today I had the opportunity to participate in the City of East Lansing’s Paint the Aves Initiative with fellow members of my student-run theater group, the Roial Players. To celebrate MSU’s homecoming, student organizations were assigned a shopfront in downtown East Lansing and given washable window paint. It was a fun event that helped connect MSU with the East Lansing community and local businesses. I painted Roial Crew’s mascot, Oklahoma, a piece of scrap wood left over from set building that resembles the state of Oklahoma. It’s in the bottom left corner of one of the pictures in the slideshow below.
