During the installation of 2014 University of Washington MFA + MDes Thesis Exhibition, we hounded the students for news of life-to-come once their studies were done. If you want to learn more about their art, get yourself a ticket for the Art Dawgs Reception and Tour tonight from 6:00-8:00 pm and party with the exhibiting artists.
Can be found on the internet or at Pike Place Market getting an espresso with cream & sugar. After graduation he is most excited about: “Freedom!”
While students don’t have a lot of free time, Bradley likes getting over to Discovery Park. He also let me in on a secret: “I’ve never been to the gum wall. That makes me want to PUKE.” After graduation he says, “It’s time for a new start!” which he will ruminate upon with a nice iced sweet tea in the sun.
Need a new perspective? Just peek into the objects on display for this MFA student. Hesheng spends his free time at the Ceramic and Metal Arts Building. When confronted with the idea of graduation he could only say: “Yahoo!”
After replying “Oh geez….” to the idea of graduating soon, Kat quickly moved on to topics she loved more, “I’m really into my couch, but I also love Discovery Park.” We then got to talking about the age-old debate between tea or coffee, “Sorry kids, not a fan of leaf juice. Coffee, two teaspoons of sugar, and just enough soymilk to cool it to a drinkable level.”
Make sure to scan the QR code on the label in her piece for more information about the artist. After installing her artwork, she couldn’t wait to get back to “my backyard to have a coffee with cream.” Discussing graduation she says, “It’s been fun, but holy crap I’m glad it’s over!”
Speaking of the weekend, the 2014 University of Washington MFA + MDes Thesis Exhibition is only open for another week! So head on over, enjoy a cool respite from the sun and see what our Huskies have made.
