A project by UW–Madison student Nicole Golownia has been selected for ARTIFACT [BOLD], a national biennial exhibition of graphic design, new media, illustration, printmaking, and the expanded field that is taking place Jan. 24 – Mar. 11 at High Point University in High Point, North Carolina.

Golownia is pursuing her BFA in graphic design within the School of Education’s Art Department.

ARTIFACT [BOLD] is jointly hosted by the High Point University Department of Studio Art and Graphic Design and the Darrell E. Sechrest Art Gallery, and will center designers making contemporary, innovative, and thought-provoking work.

Golownia’s project, titled “Fashion Intervention: Posters Promoting Sustainable Style,” is an exhibition design she originally developed for her Art 448 Spatial Graphic Design and Art 656 Design Portfolio and Professional Practice courses at UW–Madison. Her research investigates poster designs from 2016 to the present that address the topic of fast fashion and textile waste. Through her work, she aims to promote more sustainable clothing choices and advocate for more sustainable and ethical clothing production.
