SCA Visual Art Student Union’s annual Seattle Trip

Every year the SCA's Visual Art Student Union (VASU) facilitates its annual 'January Seattle Trip,' inviting students from across the SCA to visit galleries in our closest major American city neighbour. Organized this year by Phoebe Huang and Joni Cheung, students visited the Henry Art Gallery and the Seattle Art Museum, including the SAM's Olympic Sculpture Park, participating in tours lead by curators Nina Bozicnik at the Henry and Catharina Manchanda at the SAM. The January Seattle Trip is one of the most anticipated class activities for Visual Art students (and not only Visual Art students) and faculty. The Henry and the SAM are both large, active galleries with busy exhibition schedules, often featuring work by significant contemporary and modern artists. The trip also provides a valuable and rewarding opportunity for students to interact and connect with each other outside of the classroom, offering a less formal chance to network and engage in active discussions, which ultimately feed back into their ongoing studio and academic studies and explorations.
