UMD Graphic Design Program Sets
Senior Graphic Design Exhibition in Minneapolis
Show Opening for Design Field Professionals
The graphic design program at the University of Minnesota Duluth (UMD)
will hold Design@UMD 2, its second annual senior graphic design student
exhibition in Minneapolis, April 2-16. The show will be held at Oslund & Associates
at 115 North Washington Avenue (located in the Minneapolis Warehouse
The public is cordially invited.
The exhibition is designed to showcase the work of UMD graphic design students and to present an opportunity for the Twin Cities professional design community and potential employers to view their creative work. The Twin Cities is one of the largest major design centers in the United States, and the UMD Graphic Design Program has the largest graphic design curriculum in Minnesota.
A show opening for design field professionals will be April 2 from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. with a reception to follow from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m.
The show will be open to the public Monday through Friday 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. through April 16. Duluth and Twin Cities residents are cordially invited to view the exhibition.
UMD believes that through this experience, design graduates will be better able to transition from a university setting to the workplace in one of the country's major design centers. Students will have the opportunity to meet with potential employers, and members of the community in turn will be able to view their collective work.
