Portland in the desert!
A group of 7 MFA students and 1 professor drove down to Joshua Tree for the High Desert Test Sites. Andrea Zittel is a founder of this project, and through meeting her when she gave a lecture here at the beginning of the term, she invited us to come down, see the art and camp on her land for the weekend! More photos of this trip to come on PSU's art deptartment flickr page
