Launching; Art + Design Foundations Exhibition features student work created in the four different College of Visual and Performing Arts foundations courses including drawing, two-dimensional and three-dimensional design, and digital platforms. Launching invites viewers to explore basic concepts of art in relation to contemporary society as prompted by works created independently, and collaboratively in a variety of media and disciplines, such as professor Travis Neel's "Disappearance Act" assignment, which asks students to develop a creative way to become temporarily invisible. Pages from hand made books from Professor Janine Wong's 2D Form and Shape class are projected in large scale, inviting viewers to go inside the pages, while select books are available for hands on viewing. Artist Brynn Vasil's site specific installation based on the twenty foot line project encompasses an entire wall of the gallery.
Faculty that taught the FOU courses are: Travis Neel, Janine Wong, Eric Lintala, and Aaron Bourque as well as graduate students Chris Smith and Allen TenBusschen.
