The Ohio University Art Gallery is hosting the opening reception for the College of Fine Arts Graphic Design undergraduate thesis exhibition, "Tangerine," Tuesday from 6-8 p.m. in Seigfred Hall.
Tangerine will be open and free to the public from opening night through May 26 from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. daily, showcasing individual thesis projects from nearly 20 seniors.
According to a news release, "Tangerine is a collaborative presentation of each artist's approach to design thinking through identification of personal challenges, generation of novel approaches to problem solving as well as shaping meaningful experiences through graphic design research and experimentation."
Tangerine exhibits traditional graphic design ingredients "while breaking into areas of non-traditional graphic interests through the design and construction of innovative shelving units, indoor plant modules with a focus on improving air quality, and an investigation into the relationship between perception and instinct as they apply to the psychology of graphic design."
In connection with the graphic design exhibits, an accomplished graphic designer, Danielle Rini Uva, will present a lecture at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, May 24, in OU Walter Hall 145. Uva, a 1999 graduate in graphic design from OU, started RUL, a collaborative graphic-design studio in Cleveland, with Lizzy Lee in 2009. Uva previously was senior designer at the Museum of Contemporary Art Cleveland and Art.
