RICHLAND, Wash. – Artist Peter Christenson will exhibit works showing regional Scottish traditions, stories and socio-political and geographic landscapes April 15-22 at the Washington State University Tri-Cities Art Center, room 102 in the Consolidate Information Center.
They are from the 2015 Fulbright Scholar residency that the WSU Tri-Cities fine arts assistant professor spent at the University of Dundee. He collaborated with community partners to develop a multimedia cultural archive and video series portraying the region.
Christenson said the experience allowed him to work with the community to build an archive as Dundee enters a major development phase.
“I remain impressed and inspired by a number of university-led culture-building models that are underway in Scotland,” he said. “I’m eager as an artist and academic to continue developing community-based and collaborative projects to showcase and grow our culture here in Tri-Cities.”
Christenson’s experience includes working as a licensed psychotherapist, and his academic research and art are rooted in interventionist, psychosocial and institutional critique theories.

He was one of about 800 U.S. faculty and professionals to receive a Fulbright award in 2015. Fulbright programs operate in more than 155 countries, sending American faculty members, scholars and professionals abroad to lecture and/or conduct research for up to one year.
