Local Washington & Lee Artist Missy Barro

“I fell asleep drawing these little blue beauties and had dreams of Lee Chapel…”

Like you, local Washington & Lee artist Missy Barro loves W&L so much the awe-inspiring campus in the valley of Virginia with its the Greek Revival architecture and rich history of tradition, honor and civility fills her dreams.

As a senior, Missy is currently part of the teeming life of the present at W&L—the tight-knit community of classmates, teammates, alumni, sorority sisters, fraternity brothers, faculty members and the like—who walk among these old buildings daily, continuing to give the university its vibrancy.

Soon, she will graduate on the lawn in front of Lee Chapel, leaving this wondrous place behind for a new generation, taking with her enough memories and relationships to dream about for a lifetime.

Missy illustrated your Washington & Lee stories for Mayor’s new Good Ol’ Dubyuhnell button-down. Missy’s wearable artwork radiates the essence of Washington & Lee wherever you wear it.

In a series of ink pen drawings, Missy chose a traditional style for the blue and white motifs of the Washington & Lee experience you love to release the emotions of your story with unparalleled detail, as if you are there, in the story:

Strolling through campus from Lee Chapel through the Colonnade all the way to the Ruins as faces familiar and new pass by saying “hello.”

Exploring the bucolic Virginia countryside of Rockbridge County with your Outing Club crew—hiking House Mountain in the morning, floating down the Maury in the afternoon and watching the sunset behind the sorority houses from Cadaver Bridge.

Returning to Wilson Field for Homecoming and leaving early for a drink at the Palms, followed by an evening of band parties in Red Square and late nights hopping from the Pole Houses to bonfires on Windfall, seeing your entire W&L family along the way.
