That’s Mark Turpin ’09 explaining his original art to Wabash alumni board member Mark Shreve ’04 during the recent Celebration of Student Research on January 30, 2009.  Of course, there’s more to the story.

Mark T. got his inspiration for the painting while studying in Italy on the semester abroad program. Mark S. works for a company that handles study abroad programs in, you guessed it, Italy.  Small world.

Mark T. is one of those talented guys who can do almost anything.  He’s an artist and varsity basketball player, along with 40-11 (Hoosier for a lot) different talents and interests.
