Two large-scale architectural drawings of Angkor Wat in Cambodia and Thatbinyinyu in Burma filled the McNamer Gallery this fall. Mary Griep, originally from Dubuque, is a professor of art at St. Olaf College in Northfield, Minnesota who has traveled the world creating highly detailed, large-scale drawings of Medieval temples. The Angkor Wat drawing (seen here) is almost too large to be taken in all at once, mimicking the experience of visiting this sacred architectural wonder.
