“The senior show showcases students’ individual areas of interest and focus,” said Richard Wanjema, assistant professor of visual communication design and program director of media arts at Grace. “They have worked hard all year to develop their exhibits and have done a marvelous job.”
Seven seniors from the Department of Visual, Performing, and Media Arts are participating in the exhibit: Jennie Gold, Deborah Jackson, Kaylee Kercher, Chantel Shetler, Daniel Stephens, Stephen Thompson and Khari Warren. The students’ creative work spans many genres, from photography and painting to 3-D, digital design and visual communication design.
The department’s goal is to equip graduates with the ability to communicate visually, possess professional skills and be able to analyze works from historical and contemporary cultural perspectives. Students learn to demonstrate excellence in creative work that ultimately serves in their calling as artists, Christians and professionals.
