Gallery - Migration by Matthew Olds
University Gallery in Ingram, Pacific Lutheran University 12180 Park Ave S Tacoma, WA 98447
The places we are from, the places we are now, directly contribute to the people we have become and ultimately, where we will go. Artist Matthew Olds looks into the relationship of people moving through places from the Tacoma area, to current desperate global migrations, and ultimately the journey from life to death. Video, paintings, and site-specific sculptural installations, create a dynamic multi-media visual conversation between both the works in the gallery and those who walk through it. This gallery will be open March 15 to April 12, Monday thru Friday from 8am-4pm. Info:
