Murtaugh Artwork Noted in Sacramento Bee Article

Artwork by Assistant Professor of Art Rebecca Murtaugh was mentioned in a Sacramento Bee article “Post-it Notes Celebrate 30 Years” (6/28/10). The article commemorates the birthday of the Post-it note, which, “with its unique ability to organize and communicate, has stuck to its position as an office supply must-have.”

According to the Sacramento Bee, “Rebecca Murtaugh, an art professor at Hamilton College in New York, has used the Post-it note for nearly a decade. She’s covered rooms in Post-its, created a 10-foot-tall stack of them, and in her latest project, hand-cut thousands of multicolored Post-it notes and arranged them in a psychedelic structure.”

Murtaugh, the article says “is drawn to the transient nature of sticky notes.” She’s quoted as saying “I love they serve a purpose, then they're disposed of. I think that's really beautiful.”

Murtaugh's Post-it note artwork was featured in The New York Times in 2007.
