The School of Education’s Art Department is presenting an exhibition of work from students in its Graphic Design area, online through Mar. 20, 2021.

Yeohyun Ahn, an assistant professor in the Art Department, said the idea for the exhibition arose from a conversation with one of her graphic design students, who asked if she was providing the same quality of education during the pandemic as she had before.
While Ahn was able to confidently respond “yes,” in most ways, she realized she was not able to offer students an in-person opportunity to showcase their work. So she decided to organize a virtual exhibition experience.
