What did it all mean?

A collection of drawings by Lucus Johnson, who brands his art under the name Oddity, poses a question with an open-ended solution: “But what did it all mean? I leave the answer in your hands.” Stickers featuring his businessman and punk designs sold out during Thursday’s reception.


A combination of artists, instructors, family, friends and art lovers mixed at the reception hosted in honor of art students from Black Butte High School and Rock Springs High School. Many works that earned ribbons at state were featured.
