COVID-19 virtual exhibition opens Oct. 16

Four dozen art and design students from across the SUNY system were tasked with a very topical assignment this semester.

They created compelling designs to help guide campus communities in complying with COVID-19 safety precautions. Their heartfelt and relatable student-to-student messages inspire action and have been applied to stickers, posters, T-shirts and social media.

Dowd Gallery will host a virtual exhibition of their work, COVID-19 Campus Safety Campaign, via Webex on Friday, Oct. 16 at 4:30 p.m. Detailed registration information is available on the Dowd Gallery webpage or here.

Participating professors and selected students will speak about their experiences during the virtual exhibition. A recording of the event will be available to view after Oct. 16 through the Dowd Gallery site.

The participating students, 47 in all, study at four campuses: Alfred University, SUNY Brockport, Cortland and SUNY Purchase.

Faculty who worked on this project include Mitchell Christianson, an assistant professor at SUNY Brockport; Szilvia Kadas, an assistant professor at SUNY Cortland; Judy Livingston, an associate professor at Alfred University and Benjamin Santiago, an adjunct professor at SUNY Purchase.    

The designs for the COVID-19 Campus Safety Campaign were juried by the four instructors. The best designs were selected to be displayed online through the Dowd Gallery website and archived in "Past Exhibitions" starting Dec. 11, 2020.  

For more information about this project, additional images and the complete list of participating students, please visit the Dowd Gallery website or contact Dowd Gallery Director Jaroslava Prihodova at 607-753-4216.
