  • [untitled] 

    Wurts, Alexander (University of Oregon, 2018)

  • What I know now 

    Wallace, Meril (2017-06-22)
    Here is where I first learned to love. To love the place that I am from. To love the harshness of the landscape and hot afternoon winds that rush between canyon walls. Where did this love come from? From time. Time spent ...
  • To Cloak Empty Space 

    Hampton, Mandy; Keathley, Mandy (2017)
    To sculpt is to cloak empty space in material. Like a balloon containing air, my sculptures give shape to empty spaces, while simultaneously concealing them. The experience of making a sculpture is like hiking up a mountain; ...

  • Talking Back 

    Mikenis, Sarah (2016)
    My work pretends to respond to the weight of the world like people do: forms bend, ostensibly pulled down by the weight of a tassel, canvas gets heavy and starts to sag, or objects buckle and fold, unable to stand upright ...

  • (Heart) <3 

    Lopez, Daniel P. (2016)
    The weirdest part about being done with this report is that I can’t just tell people “Sorry, I’m working on my thesis right now.” It’s good to have it completed, but now I worry that I won’t have any good excuses for being ...
