CWU presents an Art Walk on April 25

Don’t miss your chance to see art and design work by 20 students on exhibit in three student galleries on the CWU campus.

The Art Walk will be held from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. on April 25. The three galleries are Gallery 231 in Randall Hall, the Office of the Provost in Barge Hall room 302 and the Student Success Office in Bouillon Hall room 204. There will be two multi-passenger golf carts offering rides between the buildings. College of Art and Humanities student ambassadors will serve as drivers.

The shows include:

• In the Provost Gallery in Barge Hall, the graphic design program at Central Washington University will present a collection of selected works from winter quarter. This work was completed by 15 students representing seven classes in the graphic design area, under the direction of Associate Professor David Bieloh and Assistant Professor Justin Beckman. This collection of portfolio work consists of corporate identity, branding, user interface design, package design, advertising campaigns, collateral design, poster design, and more.

• REMNANTS, an exhibition of 4 graduating studio art majors, is in the Office of Student Success Gallery in Boullion Hall. Christine Dunlap, Makayla Miracle, Trinity Oribio and Carlos Lee Sullivan present remnants of their creative work as they prepare their journeys beyond Central.

• AMNISTIA, a senior exhibition by CWU student Alex Solis is on display in Gallery 231 in Randall Hall. Growing up as a 2nd generation Latino in rural Washington, Alex likes to create and work with his hands. The culture and struggles he witnessed throughout his life, inspires his artwork. Alex employs ancient and medieval strategies and narrative sculpture in his creative process.

In addition to the gallery exhibits, there is plenty of public art, part of the State of Washington’s public art program, along the walkways between the venues. Enjoy a late afternoon filled with art and design on the campus of Central Washington University.

Parking is free in university lots after 4:30 p.m. and on weekends, except in specially marked spaces and residence hall lots.
