Lisa Franko, an MFA printmaking candidate at MU, presented her solo thesis exhibition, “i saw a striped couch,” on Thursday at the George Caleb Bingham Gallery. The exhibition was a combination of etchings and three-dimensional installations that presented a striped couch. It combined both 2D and 3D pieces to discuss a capitalist society and how the objects people purchase fail to serve their intended purpose. “Although these [two-dimensional etchings on the wall] are ideal, there’s nothing perfect about them,” Franko said.
