Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many plans have changed! My Senior Exit show that was going to be exhibited at the Dahl Art Center in Rapid City was canceled. Hopefully they can reschedule later on in the fall when things have calmed down. Will update as information is being given.
Due to the pandemic, I was also unable to present my thesis for the National Conferences on Undergraduate Research (NCUR) or the BHSU 2020 Research Symposium.
I am still scheduled to graduate from Black Hills State University with a BFA in Studio Art on May 9, 2020 and will be walking virtually. I might be able to physically walk in the fall.
This last year I've been working diligently with BHSU Art Club participating with several community projects such as the mural on Jackson and Main in Spearfish starting back in January 2019 and finally putting it onto the wall in September of 2019.
Painting the Lookout Tunnels in the fall of 2019 was another community project funded by the City of Spearfish that BHSU Art Club completed.
For 12 days I studied abroad on the Iceland Photo Excursion with the BHSU Photography Department back in May 2019. We traveled the island experiencing the culture while attempting to capturing Iceland's beauty through photo.
