January 18, 2017 (Jackson, Miss.) - The Graphic Design Department will host a week-long exhibit featuring the work of student designers. The exhibit will begin with an opening reception on January 21, 2-4 p.m. in the Bitsy Irby Visual Art and Dance Center Art Gallery.
It is rare to see a comprehensive graphic design exhibition in this area, and this show gives the general public a sense of what graphic design is about and where it is going, said Gigi Turner, Assistant Professor and Chair of the Graphic Design Department.
This is the fifth annual show for student designers, featuring a collection of the best work from the year, and it will include various print, packaging, web/multi-media and brand design exploration. This show is a juried exhibition, in which judges from leading design studios and various advertising agencies picked the work to be seen in the show.
