Student View on Display at the Ferst Center

IMG_4751On April 12, the second annual Student View exhibition, on display at the Ferst Center for the Arts during March and April 2013, served as the backdrop for the opening reception for the new campus-wide celebration of the arts, the TechArts Festival.

An estimated 200 guests including students, parents, faculty, and visitors had a chance to see the student artwork created in Georgia Tech’s first-year writing and communication courses (English 1101/1102) and other communication-related LMC courses.

This exhibition, organized by the Writing and Communication Program’s Arts Initiatives Committee, showcases a range of multimodal 2-dimensional pieces as well as video and digital artwork. It also featured a unique “touch table” with a variety of exciting book artifacts (this part of the exhibit had been on display at the Clough Undergraduate Learning Commons until the TechArts Festival).

The Student View exhibit will be on display until the end of April.

About Christine Hoffmann

Christine Hoffmann (PhD University of Arkansas, MFA Art Institute of Chicago) studies the shifting standards for credibility and utility that develop inside post-Gutenberg and post-digital rhetorical environments. Her scholarly work has been published in College Literature, the CEA Critic, PLL, the CEA Forum and, somewhat randomly, Slayage: the Online Journal of Buffy Studies. A few short stories can be found in Make magazine, Eclectica and Loose Change. She also blogs regularly on TECHStyle, the forum for digital pedagogy and research by the Georgia Tech Brittain Fellows. Christine looks forward to connecting the teaching of multimodal composition to her research into rhetorics of struggle, cultures of collecting, and the advantages of copious expression.
