“Visions of the Robopocalypse"

SPU's Art Center Gallery presents “Visions of the Robopocalypse." Originally conceived as a robot-building endeavor, the project later expanded into other media while embracing a variety of dark and often humorous themes. “Visions of the Robopocalypse" is a collaboration between Andrew Peterson, SPU art adjunct faculty, and the Sanctuary Art Center (SAC), a nonprofit art studio serving homeless youth and young adults in Seattle. Each aspect of the installation was designed by Peterson and his young SAC partners. The exhibit runs until March 17. The Art Center Gallery is located at 3 West Cremona Street. It's open 8 a.m.–5 p.m., Monday through Friday. Admission is free.

Pet Photo of the Week

“Lily is our 8-year-old albino kitty. We rescued her from the Humane Society four years ago. For the life of me I don't know why I picked an all white cat when my husband and I wear so much black. Needless to say, we have left a bit of Lily all over the world when we travel. But she is a very sweet, mild-tempered girl who loves to use her kitty mind-control powers on us. She will sit at the table (she thinks we've set a place for her and always joins us in ‘her' chair) and stares at my husband, using her mind-control powers to try and get him to give her some shrimp, her all-time favorite food. It works most of the time. She loves playing ‘catch the bird' with my husband. He is the only one who can make her bird-toy fly in a realistic birdlike way; when I try, she looks bored. He tells me I must think like a bird … ah well. The other photo was taken by my 6-year old grandson, who likes to do ‘art' photos of the cat. Lily is very good about having her picture taken and, as my husband is photographer, she has learned to sit still and model. What I love about her the most is the way she snuggles up and puts her paw on my shoulder while I am reading." Cheri Wilke, administrative assistant, Art Department. Select the link for the artistic photo by Cheri's grandson. More
