The San Jacinto College Art and Design Technical Program on the South Campus will spotlight the design-centered art of ‘workforce’ students.

The San Jacinto College Art and Design technical program on the South Campus is unveiling an exhibition Nov. 4 that showcases the talents of the department’s workforce students.

South Campus Art Professor Brian Piana said this is the first exhibition since 2011 to “shine a light” on the design-centered artistry of students ready to pursue “creative and fulfilling careers” in the broad spectrum of the design industry.

“Design is present in so much of our day-to-day lives – from the websites we browse to signs along our commute to the brands and packaging of things we buy,” he said.

The exhibition features a range of genres, including print design, branding development, web design, illustration, video, photography, and animation.

The South Campus art gallery hosts an annual juried art exhibition each spring to spotlight the work from fine arts studio classes. However, this show highlights the work of design media students explicitly.

Piana said enrollment in the technical program continues to grow as more and more students seek careers in graphic design and related fields, raising the possibility similar exhibitions may return in the years to come.

“We are hoping to make it an annual fall event going forward,” Piana added. “We’re proud of our technical students and wanted to be able to showcase their design-centered work.”

The SJC Art and Design Technical Program Exhibition will run from Nov. 4 through Dec. 6 in Room 112 of the Flickinger Fine Arts Center (S15) on the South Campus.
