A piece of art made by the students in SBU's Karen Barth Art's Program. 

“This masterpiece represents all of us as a
community and unites us. For instance, we drew a
soccer ball, which connects all of us together. Our
piece is about community, love and happiness. In the
center is the SBU logo, which means a lot to us.”
