Hut of Gold

Another round for The Hut.

The basic painting class assignment? Paint an ugly building that has significance. For Nikki Dully ’20, the choice was obvious. She’d paint The Hut.The squat, barn red building she passed on walks to campus. Never mind that she’d never tacked an autographed greenback to the ceiling. Never swigged a beer there. At 19, she was too young for those Santa Clara rites. But she knew the then soon-to-be-shuttered dive bar represented Bronco history. Based on photos Dully snapped at “the golden hour,” it would be her tribute.

“I wanted to capture it for other people,” she says. “I made the sign pretty detailed so your attention is drawn to it.”

Her realistic oil composition—blending deep reds, burnt umber, and white smudges—was a work-in-progress when Professor of Art Kelly Detweiler shared an idea: Produce and sell prints of Dully’s depiction of “The Hut” to help support the arts at SCU. And so it came to be. Now you too can own a print of Nikki Dully’s painting.
