PSS floral design exhibition takes cues from Vivaldi's 'The Four Seasons'
By: Norman Martin
The light-filled atrium of Texas Tech University's new Bayer Plant Science Building was filled on Thursday (May 10) with a colorful and striking mix of flowers. Fourteen large flower arrangements were featured as part of the final project for students in the Department of Plant and Soil Science's 2310 Floral Design class. This semester's sessions were led by Russell Plowman, an instructor of horticulture. The theme for this year's program was based on Italian composer Antonio Vivaldi's The Four Seasons, a group of four violin concerti each of which gives musical expression to a season of the year. Among this year's winners were Jacey Snapp, a sophomore agricultural communications major from Lubbock (First Place-Tie); Merrit Mitchell, a sophomore accounting major from White Deer (First Place-Tie); and Macy Hering, a freshman biology major from Flower Mound, TX (Second Place). The People's Choice Award also went to Snapp.
