Come experience the world of Virtual Reality (VR) and step into a work of art! Willamette University student Anna Neshyba ‘18 has been hard at work transforming this very scenario into a “virtual reality” with two artworks at the Museum! Her “Pop-Up Virtual Reality Museum Experience” will take place on April 17, 24, and May 1 in between 1-2 PM and April 21, 28, and May 5 between 1-2:30 PM! During her pop-up experience, Neshyba invited visitors to use a VR headset and VR controllers to step into two environments based on David George Andersen’s mixed media work “Vault of Heaven” (2013) and Paul Missal’s “The Hallway” (1971). The environments are immersive and emphasize the core features of the original works of art which are part of the permanent collection at HFMA.

Join us in celebrating the achievements of our talented Studio Art seniors and faculty at Willamette. The senior Studio Art showcase as well as “Water is Sacred: Water is Life” will be on view in the galleries from April 14 to May 13. This year’s senior art students include: Jacob Benjamin Nissim Behar, Audrey Childs, Kristian Lemuel Cruz, Ashlee M.R. Duarte, Teddy Healy, Peri I. Hildum, Abigail Lahnert, Chloe Allease Lawton, Miles Solomon MacClure, Miranda Martin, and Nastja Nykaza. As a special feature, the current group of seniors will discuss their work as part of three free Tuesday Gallery Talks. In conjunction is “Water is Sacred: Water is Life,” a solo exhibition of Professor James B. Thompson’s new body of mixed media work that explores themes of water and water waste.
