2010 RISD Commencement Speech Mentioned in the Providence Journal.

After a very delightful graduation ceremony it was a treat to find that our 2010 RISD Commencement Speech was mentioned in the Providence Journal.

A pair of graduate speakers — brothers Kirk and Nathaniel Mueller, each wearing large red eyeglasses — recalled how novelist Oscar Wilde once attributed American violence to “ugly wallpaper.” While amusing, the anecdote points to how aesthetically pleasing design and architecture can contribute to a peaceful society, they said. They urged their classmates to “bring beauty into the world.”
