Out of eighty colourful posters created by Southern Cross University design students, one eye-catching design has been chosen as the official poster for August’s upcoming Arts Vs Science Festival.
The festival brings together artists and scientists, and everyone in between, from some of the Northern Rivers’ leading education, research and action institutions for Lismore’s big National Science Week event in August.
Winning entrant Charly Crossing, who is in her first year of digital media and communications at Southern Cross, responded to the news enthusiastically.
‘Now I have had my poster chosen I will definitely have to attend the festival!’ Charly quipped.
Southern Cross University visual communication lecturer Dr Louise Kolff said students responded ‘in so many different ways, producing wonderful posters for the Festival, while learning a lot about design principles along the way’.
Three exhibitions across Lismore will feature these posters leading up to the Arts Vs Science Festivalon Saturday August 18 at The Quad.
Posters will be exhibited at Southern Cross University Lismore Campus Library from August 20, and in the Lismore Regional Library from July 30. Then shortlisted posters will be featured in an exhibition on the day of the Festival in the Lismore Regional Gallery’s event space.
Cultivating the collaborations that form the core of The Quad and the Northern Rivers Science Hub, the Arts Vs Science Festival offers something for everyone. Come discover a world where art meets science! The full program will be released soon.
