The Montage Fine and Performing Arts Series will open its annual graphic design with two exhibitions, "Transitions" and "MoWall."
Opening receptions for both exhibits will take place on Thursday,
April 12. The "Transitions" reception will be from 5 - 8 p.m. in the Collins C.
Diboll Gallery, located on the fourth floor of the J. Edgar and Louise S.
Monroe Library. The "MoWall" reception
will take place from 5 - 7 p.m. in
between Miller Hall and Monroe Hall, next to the MoWall.
In "Transitions," graphic design seniors will exhibit specific assigned projects as well as their individual final projects, based on the word "Transitions," which refers to them graduating and transitioning into the professional world.
Juniors in the graphic design program will unveil the completed "MoWall," the massive design project that reinvented the semi-permanent wall outside of Monroe Hall. Over the course of 12 weeks, the wall was slowly transformed as students painted 12 layers with 12 corresponding themes on the wall. The project's guiding principle was the phrase "Embracing the Future," derived from the tagline marking Loyola's Centennial Celebration. Each junior design student will also present an individual project created over the course of the semester.
