Chelsea Couch: boots, bullets, britches, & bologna
April 16 – May 14, 2022
Each spring, the Hallie Ford Museum of Art pairs its annual senior studio art majors’ exhibition with a small solo exhibition of recent work by one of the faculty members in the art department. The purpose of the exhibition is to demonstrate the continuing connection and relationship between student and faculty research.
This year’s featured faculty member is Visiting Assistant Professor of Art Chelsea Couch, who teaches sculpture, video art, performance art, and time-based media in the Willamette University Art Department.
Within "boots, bullets, britches, & bologna" Couch explores contemporary concepts through materials and forms traditionally used for safety, protection, and packaging, while framing it through their identity as a queer non-binary person.
Couch teaches courses in sculpture, video art, performance art, and time-based media, and received an MFA in Studio Art from University of Oregon and a BFA in Painting & Drawing from The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. Couch is also the Co-Artistic and Executive Director of Ditch Projects in Springfield, Oregon.
Join Chelsea Couch, Tuesday, May 3, 2022, at noon for a live Zoom tour of the exhibition. This tour is free and open to the public
