Facilities' Cloud Huntley works in Lewis Center for the Arts buildings and one of a handful of subjects in a series of portraits by artist Mario Moore. "Portraits on university campuses usually portray school founders, presidents, and donors. But at Princeton University, portraits of blue-collar campus workers are now taking center stage. A new set of paintings are offering a fresh perspective on the working class, racial struggle, and empowerment at the Ivy League school". Read the full Philadelphia Tribune article.
