GRC 207 Students' Impression Poster Exhibition

From March 5 until May 2010, students from Dan McElhattan III's GRC 207 class will have their Impression Poster Exhibition on display at Holsum Design Center.

On display is the work of 11 GRC students, created as the final project for McElhattan's Fall 2009 Electronic Design class.

This is a "great opportunity to promote the classes and connect the artists to our community through our exhibition," McElhattan said. "I hope you can make the time to view the posters."

To view video footage of the work go to http://www.youtube.com/m3impression.

Three of the 11 posters on display.

To view artwork, it will be displayed as follows:
Holsum Bread Company (Holsum Design Center)
(Charleston and I-15 - next to the Smith Center for the Performing Arts Headquarters.)
241 West Charleston Blvd., Las Vegas, NV

First Friday, March 5, 4–10pm
After First Friday: Monday–Saturday
8:30am–6pm (When Holsum is opened)
from March 5–May 6, 2010

The Holsum Building reflects the passion of one man’s vision to save a piece of Las Vegas History and infuse culture in a community that celebrates and embraces talent.

LaPour Partners, the building's owner, has graciously allowed the College of Southern Nevada (Cheyenne Campus) to display the works of 11 student-designer/artists from their final project entitled: IMPRESSION.

For the GRC 207 Electronic Design course of Spring 2009, the students were challenged with a tailored project for a greater cause. To design a poster that expresses their favorite quotation. The cause was to see if the talent at a local college can rise to the occasion and leave a lasting impression.

The direction for the students was to design a poster that they would be proud to purchase and hang in their homes—a design that would leave a lasting Impression for the audience viewing the design, McElhattan explained.

Their concept would not be graded as a final exam, but judged by leading business owners, patron of the arts, local photographers, entrepreneurs and managers of companies that embrace design as a marketing tool. A private invitation was sent to 35 judges to attend for review and critique the final posters.

"On these walls are those works of art from the due diligence of the future designers of our community," McElhattan said. Sponsors are UBC Enterprises, GoingGreen.com, JDYN Photography, Frazee Paint, Wendoh Media, Joey Galon, Larry Monterro, Ron & Karen Custer, Skyler Custer & Christian Sagum Mike Marion, M3AD.com, and Lola’s.

Take the time to visit Holsum Design Center and see if these posters makes a lasting Impression.
