Cal Lutheran presents the opening reception of Passionate Perspectives, a collection of artwork from the Art Department’s senior class of 2020. In March 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic abruptly interrupted campus life, including plans for the graduating class’ presentation. While virtual exhibits were created, they are no substitution for seeing the work in person. Some works have been edited since they were created at Cal Lutheran, others are completely new. Despite alumni moving away or abroad, being admitted to graduate programs, or starting careers, these young artists returned to campus to mount the show that was intended for over a year ago. The virtual exhibits are available here.
This exhibit explores the artists’ passion for environmental, political, cultural, or emotional subject matter. Each artist contributes a unique perspective through the lens of life experiences and views of current events through traditional and digital media. Artists include Karlie Anderson, Kori Hess, Bailey Huerta, Dani Iribe, Sebastian Montoya Vega, Kaylee Reel, Mona Saii, Natalie Tseng, and Jessi van der Laan.
Come in person to celebrate these amazing artists and young alumni, whose senior year was cut short by the pandemic.
