Our Biggest Show Ever!
Thanks to you, this year’s Show was the biggest we’ve ever had! With well over 400 attendees joining us from all across Nebraska to show their best and celebrate the strong work coming out of our state, we’d like to thank you for your part in making this year’s Show amazing!
Show hits the road!
AIGA Nebraska’s Show exhibit will be on display at the MCC Gallery of Art and Design from December 9, 2015 until January 4, 2016. The winning work will be featured alongside Jim Wolf’s Sabbatical Projects.
Full-time faculty at Metropolitan Community College can choose to take time away from teaching in order to work on projects that benefit them as teachers, and, in turn, benefit students at MCC. For his sabbatical, Jim Wolf, full-time faculty in the Design, Interactivity and Media Arts (DIMA) program, approached Corporate 3 Design, and asked if he could work alongside their designers and developers for three months (December 2014 – February 2015).
Wolf asked specifically to work on web design projects. When asked why, Wolf said “Although I’ve taught myself the basics of web design, my professional experience was more focused on print-based work; I thought my sabbatical would be a great opportunity to update and expand my skill set, as well as bring back knowledge that could be incorporated into the curriculum. Working at C3D helped me get up to speed on modern visual approaches to web design, as well as what creative and technical skills a designer would need to know to prepare them to take on web projects.” You can read more about his experience at Corporate 3 Design here: http://www.corporate3design.com/blog/64/
Jim Wolf’s Sabbatical Projects and the Show will be on display at MCC’s Elkhorn Campus Gallery of Art & Design, located at 829 North 204th Street in Elkhorn NE, through Monday, January 4, 2016. For Winter quarter, regular gallery hours are Monday–Thursday 9 am–8 pm, Friday 9 am–5 pm, and Saturday 10 am—4 pm (the gallery will be closed December 24–January 3). The opening reception for Wolf’s sabbatical projects, as well as AIGA Nebraska’s Show, will be Wednesday, December 9, 4:00—5:30 pm. The gallery and opening reception are free and open to the public.
Winning work can also be viewed online at http://shownebraska.org/winners.
