The Parkland College Graphic Design Student Juried Exhibition showcases the best work of students in Parkland’s Graphic Design program. This year’s exhibit will be held at the Parkland Art Gallery from May 17 through June 17. A reception will be held on Thursday, May 20, from 6 to 8 p.m. in the gallery lounge.

The content of the show is the best work from our graphic design, web design and motion graphics students. With the design profession expanding from traditional print media into areas like web animation, motion graphics and interactive design, this exhibition reflects what contemporary designers are asked to do - solve visual communication problems for our clients using any and all media creatively.

An Award Ceremony celebrating the achievements of students in Graphic Design will take place at 7 pm and celebrates the achievements of Parkland College design students. Besides giving students a chance to present their best work to the community and to industry professionals in marketing communication, advertising, and design, the exhibit also highlights service learning, an important component of Parkland's curriculum. As the students successfully solve visual communication problems for local clients, the clients often donate money for awards. During the celebration a number of awards will be presented. Monetary awards include the Dr. David M. and Shirley A. Jones Student Art Award for a work of outstanding artistic achievement; The Graphic Design Best of Show Award, The Fine & Applied Arts Department Chair Award, and the President’s Award for Excellence. Other awards are given by clients and supporters of the Design Program and include The Frederic W. Goudy Type Award, The Electric Pictures Award of Excellence, The Luciferin & Luciferase Design Award, among others.

Please note our Gallery summer hours are Monday through Thursday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., and in the evenings from 6 to 8 p.m. To find the Gallery when classes are in session, use the M parking lots, enter through any door, and follow the ramps uphill to the highest point, where the gallery is located.
