The Utopia of Stillness

Eastern Oregon University - Student Show

February 2 - March 22, 2023


“Utopia” is defined as a place of ideal perfection especially in laws, government, and social conditions. Yet, when students were asked to imagine their own utopias, many turned to places of comfort and bounty. Ironically, the artists produced images that evoke feelings of peace, slowness, and familiarity. Perhaps our idealized version of life is finding stillness in the everyday. 


Painting and screen printing students created these pieces in the fall term of 2022 on the Eastern Oregon University campus.

This show was curated by senior art major, Corrina Stadler.
