Graphic design works featured in new Carter Art Center show

Crossroads are any point of intersection of two or more paths that lead off in different directions, or converge into a focal point of decision and creation, where people, ideas and events can come together or depart.

Metropolitan Community College-Penn Valley Carter Art Center proudly presents “Crossroads,” featuring works by MFA graphic design alumni of  the Vermont College of Fine Arts.

The exhibit, which debuts at a special First Friday event on Oct. 6,  was organized by MCC-Penn Valley’s Darlene Town. Town, who serves the College as an art instructor and leads the graphic design associate in applied science program, is a VCFA alumna. She worked with fellow alumni to bring the pieces to Kansas City and says she is “excited and thrilled” to be able to showcase the talents of her fellow artists.

“We’re honored to host it in the heart of the country near the Crossroads,” says Carter Art Center director Bernadette Torres.
