Laura Nakasaka ’17
Studio Art Major 
Based in Washington, D.C.

“I work in drawing, photography, and sometimes fabric while often thinking about memory and humor.”

Favorite memory of life at Carleton 

“Hard to pick one! I loved finding new artwork pinned to the walls and seeing friends walk up to Boliou from the parking lot.”

Favorite memory of studying with Dan Bruggeman, Fred Hagstrom, and Linda River Rossi 

“I feel so lucky to have had all three as teachers and role models. From studying with them, I learned different ways to pay attention, wander, see, and connect. Their artistic practices continue to inspire me and motivate me to evolve my own.”
