Above are two views of the installation of McIlvaine's Graduating show at the College of Creative Studies at the University of California at Santa Barbara. They are charcoal pastel on paper. Below is the invitation for the show, featuring a portrait of McIlvaine by his fellow student Debbie Urlich. There is also a close-up of the pastel on paper work titled, "Rock and Roll."
