AU Visual Communication Design Seniors present exhibition

Anderson, Ind. — The 2018 graduating visual communication design class at Anderson University will host a gallery opening on Saturday, April 14 from 3-5 p.m. Wilson Galleries will feature the work of ten students in the exhibition, titled “refinement.” The show acts as a culmination of four years of design curriculum and a school year of labor for the seniors.

The exhibit will showcase a diverse collection of artwork and design pieces in digital and print formats. Topics range from cultural awareness, to Anderson’s rebirth, to OCD, with many more topics based on students’ personal interests and experiences.

“We have put so much work into these projects and are excited to share them with the community,” said senior Peyton Bennett. “Throughout our four years of study, my fellow seniors and I have learned so much, and are pleased to put our skills on display. Attendees will enjoy a wide variety of work which provokes a lot of thought.”

Students whose work is on display will give gallery talks on Tuesday, April 17 from 6-8 p.m., and the talks will explore in-depth the students’ motivations and thoughts behind their creations. Both the gallery opening and the gallery talks are free and open to the public. Wilson Galleries will display the projects until May 5.
