Check out St{a}rt Momentum, an exhibition of art by Pacific Lutheran University Bachelor of Fine Arts students, opening tonight. “One of the great things about the work students have done is they’re really trying to push their mediums, think outside the box, and convey their artistic vision in really beautiful and unique ways,” student Kate Miller says.

The mounting of this show for the University Gallery is like no other PLU show this season. The exhibition is entirely student driven from the advertising, art installation and set up, to the catering.

“It’s the big final push out of the safety net. Instead of our professors motivating us and making us work hard, we have to be our own motivation and make ourselves work and put our best foot forward,“ says student Tessa Heck.

The exhibition features the work of PLU art and design seniors: Meghan Arntson, Alisha Buoy, Amanda Candella, Lottie Carlson, Blair Chaney, Claire Cordeiro, Andrew Deem, Chelsea Flaherty, Joe Flood, Tessa Heck, Anna Holcomb, Kate Miller, Ayla Mull, Michael Parretta, Jill Peck, Jonathan Post, Jaeda Reed, and Rachel Stoneking.

“St{art} Momentum” is an excellent metaphor for where students are in their lives. For more information contact Amanda Brady, 253.535.7162.
