Free Germs

Carnegie Mellon University students graduating from the Bachelor of Fine Arts and BXA Interdisciplinary Art Degree programs will exhibit their culminating work in “Free Germs,” the School of Art’s 2016 Senior Exhibition, opening from 6-8 p.m., Friday, April 29, in CMU’s Miller Gallery. Events are free and open to the public. Gallery hours are 12 - 6 p.m., Tuesday - Sunday. 12-6 p.m.

“One definition of the word germ is ‘an initial stage from which something may develop,’ for example ‘the germ of a brilliant idea.’ This exhibition is full of brilliant ideas, given form in a variety of materials and subject matter: from painting to animation, materiality to virtual reality,” said John Carson, head of the School of Art. "From playful to challenging, these emerging artists’ inquiries, experiments and expressions across media reflect a variety of aesthetic sensibilities and ideas, exploring how art might function in and shape the world."

Exhibiting artists are Zoe Ambinder, Audrey Banks, Jacqueline C.J. Barnes, Christin Bongiorni, Raquel Caticha, Lindsay Cavallo, Heather Cowie, Jamie Earnest, Darrius Fletcher, Hannah Gaskill, Max Emilio Gonzales, Madalyn Gryger, Claire Hentschker, Jennifer Huang, Nivetha Kannan, Swetha Kannan, Daniel Kim, Ralph Kim, Melanie Kim, Steven Kosovac, Maryyann Landlord, Tate Leone, Emily Drew Miller, Christian Murphy, Angelina Namkung, Maggy Navin, Rachel June Park, Paul Peng, Nicholas Sardo, Ticha Sethapakdi, Maddy Varner, Carolina Vogt, Paul Alex Walker.
