GRAPHIC DESIGN EXHIBIT – “That’s Art?” – an exhibit of works showcasing Southeastern Louisiana University graphic design students – is on display through April 18 at Clark Hall. The exhibit is sponsored by the Southeastern student chapter of the American Institute of Graphic Arts.
A reception for the student designers will be held Wednesday, April 16, at 6 p.m. in the lobby of Clark Hall.
Open to both campus and community, the show is the brainchild of Southeastern's student chapter of the American Institute of Graphic Arts. The student organization is dedicated to helping its members learn more about the field of graphic design and to get jobs after graduation.
"This show will be the first ever to feature only graphic design work and the first show held by Southeastern's AIGA chapter," said chapter president Dakota Chichester, a graphic design major from Hammond.
"Local business owners may especially be interested in seeing the work and talking with the designers since many of these talented students will be working in the design field soon creating Web sites, advertising and print designs for businesses all around Louisiana," he said.
“HOW Magazine,” a national design periodical, and downtown Hammond's Organic Planet are sponsoring the event, while Berry Town Produce is donating strawberries for the reception.
The show is being judged by Mandeville design studio Imaginal Marketing, and prizes, including a package from Stone Type Foundry, will be given to winners in several categories.
