Studio Art Alumna: Darby Raymond-Overstreet ’16

Darby Raymond-Overstreet '16 makes moving digital art pieces based on Navajo weaving patterns, a project she started her senior year at Dartmouth. @dartmouthalumni

"Raymond-Overstreet graduated from Dartmouth in 2016 with degrees in psychology and studio art, and moved to Santa Fe this past September.
While she grew up creating pencil and charcoal drawings, she did not go to New Hampshire specifically to study art. But she kept taking classes, including in digital art. It’s a medium she was drawn to because, she said, it’s exciting to explore what she’s able to create with it and it’s something she can do anywhere. Raymond-Overstreet eventually found herself taking on a second major".

Artists of Dartmouth: Hannah O'Flynn

My name is Hannah O'Flynn. I am a film and media, studio art double major. All too often I find myself walking around the Visual Arts Center but not really knowing what everyone else is working on. Inspired by the famous “Humans of New York” Facebook page, I decided to create a page called “Artists of Dartmouth” for my presidential scholars project. My goal is to provide an interface to capture and share the works and stories of artists in the Dartmouth community. These artists can range from studio art professors, majors, and minors to visiting artist, students taking an art class for the first time, and artists in the broader Hanover community. I hope to foster a tighter bond within the community of Hanover by raising awareness of each other one piece, one artist, one story at a time. 

If you are interested in becoming involved in this project, please contact Hannah O'Flynn.
