UVA Students Building First Large Creature for Arts Festival

Posted: Updated:

University of Virginia students were hard at work Wednesday building a large creature.

The spider-like monster will be almost 25 feet long and 12 feet tall by the time the group finishes it Thursday night.  A collection of UVA drama, art and architecture students are all working together on the masterpiece for their arts festival in spring 2013.  This is the first of five creatures the group will build.

"We have students and instructors from all over campus coming together to create an environment of creativity, so we are taking the creature as being our theme and we're actually troubleshooting, coming up with designs, building mechanical mechanisms to make this thing work," said Steven Warner, technical director of the UVA Department of Drama.

There will be an open house Wednesday night at the UVA drama building from 7:30-8:00 p.m.  Members of the community are welcome to come and check out the creature.
