SJC Long Island’s Council for the Arts held a Random Act of Art — the second one this semester — this month, during which they placed quotes and excerpts from novels, plays, poems and other literature around campus and on social media.
“All the excerpts were chosen for their inspirational, thought-provoking or uplifting qualities,” said Anna Malzone, director of the Council for the Arts. “The idea behind this random act was to explore the art of literature and perhaps inspire a passerby.”
The excerpts and quotes were selected by members of the Council for the Arts and by Callahan Library staff members. They appeared around O’Connor Hall and the library on posters, as well as paper, and they ranged in authors from Paulo Coehlo to Shakespeare.
Members of the College community should keep their eyes peeled for more upcoming “Random Acts of Art” on campus — you never know when or where they’ll pop up! In the meantime, see below for some of the quotes that were featured:
“A little nonsense now and then is relished by the wisest men.” Roald Dahl – Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator
