WCC Art Gallery Showcases Student Designs
WCC shines the spotlight on commercial art May 3-28 when the vision and creativity of WCC graphic design students goes on display in the College’s Gallery One. An artist reception will be held Wednesday, May 12, at 5:30pm in the Gallery, which is located on the first floor of the Student Center building.
“The exhibit features a huge variety of selected student work, the best of the best,” said Kristine Williman, graphic design instructor and curator of the exhibit. “Unfortunately, there was more great work than we had space to hang it. So in addition to the 30 framed pieces we will have hung throughout the Gallery, we will be showing a video of the other designs we couldn’t fit on the walls.”
Willimann said that samples of reworked product packaging will be showcased on pedestals throughout the room. “Everything requires some visual element, whether it is a corporate identity or a package illustration,” she said. “Students were asked to pick a Michigan product and rethink it, from its logo and packaging to its pour spout. Companies like Vernors, Faygo, Jiffy, and Saunders were chosen by students and will be featured in the exhibit.”
Gallery One is open Monday and Tuesday 10:00am-6:00pm, Wednesday and Thursday 10:00am-8:00pm, and Friday 10:00am-noon. The exhibit and the artist reception on May 12 are free and open to the public. For more information call 734-477-8512.
