Cadavers Advance From Tagging to Murals

As students poured back into Lexington after Washington Break, many noticed a change in the usual scenery. Instead of the Cadaver Society’s signature scribbled tag, large and complex murals of skulls, thirteens, and other symbols of the society can be seen on buildings across campus.
The Cadavers have declined to comment on the recent shift in their style, but Art History major Marjorie Kline weighed in.
“It seems as though several of the Cadavers have been inspired by early movements such as Impressionism, judging by the skulls and ’13s’ drawn with colorful, quick strokes. An example of Pointillism can even be seen on the side of Cadaver Bridge.” Indeed, when standing on one side of the bridge, dreading the long walk across, the dots appear to be random, but the glorious walk home to bed reveals the Cadaver symbol drawn in Seurat-style dots.
“I expect that they may move into post modernism in the coming weeks,” Kline predicted when asked about the trajectory of the Cadavers’ artistic development. Though the Cadavers have created sophisticated pieces of public art, they still have yet to graduate from chalk.
