Cornish Exhibition Celebrates 10th Anniversary At Fred Hutch

Seattle, WA

Each year for the past decade, graduates from Cornish College of the Arts have displayed their work on loan in the Robert M. Arnold at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center. The work is made available for purchase at the end of year-long exhibition and several pieces have gone into the Fred Hutch permanent collection over the years.

The 2014/15 installation features 67 pieces of art – paintings, prints, photos and sculptures – all senior projects from 22 Cornish Art Department graduates. The exhibition opened in September and will remain on display through May.

Members of the public are welcome to tour the latest installation at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, Robert Arnold Building, 1100 Fairview Ave. N., Seattle, WA 98109. Cornish art professor Bonnie Biggs, the exhibition’s curator, and Rosemarie Keenan, a Fred Hutch administrator and Art Task Force member, note that while their two organizations have very different missions, they share common values: exploring new directions, encouraging creativity and making the world a better place, whether through life-affirming art or lifesaving science.
