Todd Art Gallery showcases student graphic-design works

MTSU’s Department of Art is showcasing students’ work Sept. 24-Oct. 11 in the Todd Art Gallery at the 2012 Graphic Design Juried Student Exhibition.

Sponsored by the MTSU chapter of AIGA, the professional association for design, the free public exhibit will include a juried selection of works from MTSU students interested in graphic design as well as MTSU art students pursuing the Bachelor of Fine Arts degree.

“This event is intended to promote the making and understanding of graphic design’s role in our academic culture and community at large,” said Professor Seth Johnson, who serves as the AIGA’s chapter adviser.

Department Chair Jean Nagy noted that the exhibit aims to “showcase the department’s largest segment of declared majors.”

Participation is limited to works of graphic design, but is open to all Department of Art majors and interested MTSU students, organizers said.

The exhibit will be preceded by a reception and awards ceremony on Monday, Sept. 24, from 6 to 8 p.m. in the Todd Gallery.

All exhibitions at MTSU’s Todd Gallery are free and open to the public. Gallery hours are 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday; the facility is closed on state holidays.
