Interdisciplinary Visual Arts students from University of Washington School of Art, Art History and Design will exhibit their final works from their Media in Installation, senior studio course which pushes students to further a research-based, material focused approach to making art. Over ten weeks, students have
developed one work from inception to exhibition, with careful consideration given to plurality, difference, community-building, and togetherness. The exhibition will feature sculptural, social, and media-based work that spans the human experience- ranging from emotionality and sites of resistance to representation and empowerment.
