Graphic design students in the Betty Foy Sanders Department of Art recently created nonpartisan election posters to promote student participation in the 2008 presidential election. The posters are on display at the Center for Art & Theatre now through Oct. 30. A reception for the artists is set for Friday from 7-9 p.m. at the Center and the public is invited. Leigh Thomson, professor of Graphic Design, said about the “VOTE. Design Impacts Democracy” project: “How do we communicate to the Georgia Southern University campus to encourage students to get out and vote? Over the course of three weeks, students conducted research on various voting campaigns, illustrated the progression of their work in class critiques, and in a final assessment, will exhibit their design work coincidentally in both a fine art gallery and public rally venues.”
