The Parkland College Graphic Design Student Juried Exhibition showcases the year’s best work from Parkland’s Graphic Design program classes. The exhibit will be held at the Parkland Art Gallery from Monday, May 9 through Thursday, June 16. An artists’ reception will be held on Thursday, May 12, from 6 to 8 p.m. in the gallery lounge. All events in the handicapped-accessible gallery are free and open to the public.
This juried exhibit allows Parkland’s graphic design, web design, and motion graphics students the opportunity to present their best work to the community and to industry professionals in marketing communication, advertising, and design. With the design profession expanding from traditional print media into areas like web animation, motion graphics, and interactive design, contemporary designers are often asked to solve visual communication problems for clients using various media creatively; the variety of student work in this exhibit reflects that shift.
During the May 12 reception, an awards ceremony honoring 2011 Graphic Design student achievements will take place at 7 p.m. A number of monetary awards will be given at that time; as students successfully solve visual communication problems for local clients, the clients often donate money for these awards. In this way, the exhibit also highlights service learning, an important component of Parkland’s curriculum. 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 and Applied Arts Department Chair Award; and the President’s Award for Excellence. Other awards are given by clients and supporters of the Design program, including the Frederic W. Goudy Type Award, the Electric Pictures Award of Excellence, and the Luciferin & Luciferase Design Award, among others.
All events in the handicapped-accessible gallery are free and open to the public. Parkland is a section 504/ADA-compliant institution. For accommodation, call 217/351-2505.
To find the gallery when classes are in session, we suggest using the M6 parking lot on the north corner of the campus. Enter through any door and follow the ramps uphill to the highest point of the first floor, where the gallery is located. The gallery windows overlook the outdoor fountain area.
