The FAH Keeps Abreast of Local Research

A collaged chest rests on a rock at Lakum Duckum.

Chest casting, an annual event put on by the Fine Arts House, gave students a chance to create physical art to help improve the physical health of others.

On Saturday, April 20, the Fine Arts House gave students the chance to take part in an interesting form of body art. The process for chest casting is fairly simple. People make a cast of their chest and then paint it after it has dried, yielding a nice, unique decorative piece. However, this event is not only about art.

“We are raising money for a local breast cancer association in Walla Walla [with this chest casting event],” wrote Fine Arts House RA Ashley Hansack ’15 in an email.

Those who take part in the chest casting help out with a good cause, and are then able to take their casts home and use them as decorative pieces. The Pioneer took this opportunity to check out the works of chest art made by the Fine Arts House.
