BELLINGHAM – A group of Western Washington University students have scheduled a series of fundraising events, starting with a “Flash Sale” from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Wednesday, April 29, 2015 in Western’s Fine Arts building, room 213.
This is the first of three very exciting fundraising events. Sale includes various works by students. Size and price depend on the work (cash or check).
The money being raised is to fund travel to for Art 497E Metro Art Access: NYC. Students will be traveling to New York City to visit commercial galleries, unique site-specific installations, and major institutions such as, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Museum of Modern Art, Guggenheim, and The Frick Collection, New Museum, The Museum of Art and Design, MoMA PS1, DIA Beacon, The 911 Memorial Museum, and much, much more!
In conjunction with the 2014 SPENW Regional Conference, TRANSFIXED | TRANSMEDIA, there will be an exhibition and auction of donated works created by artists from Florida to Vancouver, B.C. In the spirit of the conference, the work featured will explore, embrace, and question the ever-expanding definitions of photography. There are no restrictions or limitation in terms of medium, theme, or concept.

With the generous support of Western’s Art Department, the Dean’s office, Associated Students, and kindness of countless others, 11 photography students were afforded the opportunity to go to New York City and Balitmore for the National SPE Conference in March 2014. Garth Amundson and Pierre Gour were delighted to help out with the trip and look forward to SPE in New Orleans next year.
