Undergraduate graphic design show explores making and unmaking

The Ohio University School of Art + Design proudly presents “Command-Z,” a graphic design thesis exhibition featuring the work of 15 undergraduate students, on view April 3–7 in the Ohio University Art Gallery, Seigfred Hall.

An opening reception on April 3 will include a keynote lecture by visiting designer Jeremy Slagle, of Slagle Design in Columbus, at 5 p.m., in Mitchell Auditorium, followed by a reception catered by Sol in the gallery from 6 to 8 p.m. Both are free and open to the public.

This exhibition showcases a wide variety of media such as typography, sculpture and animation. Graphic designers experience the ups and downs of reaching for and achieving personal goals in their field. The projects on display highlight students’ dedication and hard work, through an exploration of skill building. Each designer’s work expresses a unique vision and approach, developed through study at Ohio University.

“Command-Z” includes the work of the following artists: Audrey Harpen, Nick Horvat, Sarah Higgins, Jordan Kelley, Daria Kirksey, Sarah Krivicich, Carrie Mathes, Elizabeth Manning, Tyler Morris, Sarah Petrell, Kirsten Pribula, Casey Sudetic, Katrina Toone, Marin Vatske and Annie Williams.
