Although each art book was unique, they all included a cover created by Kyle Gough, a multi-skilled tradesman II in SPU’s Office of Facility and Project Management.
“I know that art brings healing, and I wanted to spread love and compassion to the victims in the only way that I knew I could,” says Mandani. “I noticed that people were making drawings and taking pictures in response to the incident to express their love for the SPU community, so I thought, why not create an art book for all of those who were directly impacted from this incident? This is where the idea started.”
Within a week, the five unique art books created in this “Love Never Fails” collaborative project were delivered to the families of Paul Lee, Sarah Williams, Thomas Fowler, Jon Meis, and Aaron Ybarra.
