On March 10th, the opening ceremony of the ‘Chemical Engineering Art Square,’ took place in the fourth- floor lobby of CWNU's College of Engineering Building No. 2. The remodeling project at the College of Engineering included the construction of the ‘Chemical Engineering Art Square,’ a place for students to rest and display their artwork. In the ‘Chemical Engineering Art Square,’ aesthetic sensibility, which sublimates the artist's soul and efforts, coexists with engineering sensibility, which creates fluidity for the passion for conducting further non- scientific and scientific research. The Department of Fine Art and the Department of Chemical Engineering have made great efforts to create a space where the works of art students can be regularly displayed. At first, the Department of Chemical Engineering tried to receive donations of paintings owned by the Department of Fine Art, but with the support of art students, it decided to use the ‘Chemical Engineering Art Square,’ as a space where individual exhibitions can be held. They believed that regularly changing the artworks would improve the learning environment for students, rather than displaying the same paintings for an extended period.

Currently, at the ‘Chemical Engineering Art Square,’ seven pieces of artwork painted by a fourth- year art student, Shim Bo- kyung, are on display under the title of “Is That How It Fades?” The exhibition will last until April 29. “Is That How It Fades?” can be considered the main part of her ‘Dear Flow’ series. The overall story of the series centers on ‘The Flow of the World,’ a very lonesome being who created the world, and the beings who are trying to reach it. Among the beings who want to reach ‘The Flow of the World,’ 'Hyang- jae' tells the story from the perspective of observing the flow. The ‘Flow of the World,’ alone in the dark world, doesn't even know what to do or what it can do. However, it eventually realizes that the other imaginary beings become real and fulfill its desires. Shim Bo- kyung, a student of the Department of Fine Art in CWNU, said in an interview, "I am grateful for the opportunity to share the first opening of the ‘Chemical Engineering Art Square,’ with my works of art. Through my work, I felt that things that I had taken for granted were no longer taken for granted. Also, I was able to broaden my mind in various perspectives."

From now on, at the ‘Chemical Engineering Art Square,’ solo and group exhibitions of art students will be held under the supervision of the Department of Fine Art. Park Nung- saeng, a professor of the Department of Fine Art in CWNU, said, "The display of students’ artworks in this space will be an attempt to link Chemical Engineering and Fine Art. We are planning to hold various exhibitions at the ‘Chemical Engineering Art Square,’ in the future." Park Sang- hee, the head of the Chemical Engineering Department in CWNU, said, "The ‘Chemical Engineering Art Square,’ which has recently undergone renovation, will serve as a venue for an exhibition of fine art, allowing students to view various artworks that reflect the artists' philosophy in their daily lives, and to think about the connection between Engineering, Science, and Fine Art." He added, "If there is an event, students will also actively participate to take a break from difficult scientific studies for a while and have time to arouse their minds. To create a space for communication with students in the ‘Chemical Engineering Art Square,’ we will also try to host a variety of events from other departments."

The construction of the ‘Chemical Engineering Art Square,’ shows CWNU's dynamic move to provide benefits and convenience to students. The construction of the ‘Chemical Engineering Art Square,’ is notable in that it allows art students to display their works to the public, while chemical engineering students can gain new scientific inspiration through liberal arts and artistic sensibilities. Furthermore, the ‘Chemical Engineering Art Square,’ is expected to play a role as a symbolic space of, ‘The Convergence of Science and Art,’ because the two departments have collaborated and interacted with each other in an emblematic way.
