The annual Senior Visual Art (VAPA) Majors exhibition, Double Tap features art by ten senior VAPA (Visual & Performing Arts) students: Natalia Angulo, Kristine Henrich, Troy Hobbs, Jansen Howard, EB Jauer, Henry Knauer, Brittany McNeil, Angela Sparks, Bethany Tindell, and Nick Zimmer. This is the 12th iteration of the Senior VAPA Majors art exhibition at GOCA—and the first time that it will be held at GOCA Downtown.

Double Tap is a reference to social media that is simultaneously emotive and personal and yet pushed by the desire for recognition and the power of initial reaction. The artists in this exhibit are working together to orchestrate nearly every aspect of the exhibition, from curation, to lighting to layout, installation and deinstallation, marketing and PR, organizing the opening reception and gallery attending during open hours.

An opening event will be held on Friday, April 20, 5–9 PM, with an awards event at 6 pm - the exhibition and all events are free and open to the public.

Double Tap is on display through May 12, 2018, and will also be featured in Downtown Colorado Springs' First Friday art event on May 4, 2018 from 5–8 pm. Gallery hours are Thursday–Saturday, 1–6 pm, or by appointment.
