A feel good immersive experimental spa fundraiser for Planned Parenthood

Thursday, February 2nd, 5-7pm

AB Lobby Gallery & The BFA Studios

Curious Methods is an exhibition of snapshots collaboratively curated and organized by students in the School of Art + Design's BFA Program. The BFA students reached out to a select number of artists with a request for a jpeg image that can contextualize their professional practice in some way. The exhibition presents 8.5"x11" print-outs of these snapshots, allowing viewers to gain insight into these artists' methods of creation and thinking-- while simultaneously presenting a collective picture of the various artistic influences that drive the BFA cohort in their own individual practices. As learning artists, we are curious.

The Curious Experience presented in conjunction with the opening reception for Curious Methods is a feel-good immersive experimental spa event organized by the BFA Students at the School of Art + Design. An experiential menagerie (foods, games, and spiritual experiences)-- relax, release, and inspire the senses. All proceeds will be donated to Planned Parenthood. Suggested donation $5.
