Fictional worlds come to life in art exhibit

Fictional worlds art by Toby Riley

An exhibition of fictional worlds created by visual communication students opens next week in the School of Communication, with a showcase of sketches, prints, journals, books and digital images.

An opening reception will be held from 4 to 6 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 26, in the School of Communication Gallery on the second floor. The exhibit is curated by Rodrigo de Toledo, associate professor of visual communication, and showcases student works from his Fictional World Design class. The worlds were created as storytelling platforms for transmedia entertainment such as cartoons, video games, television series and movies.

The exhibit will be open to the public from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and will be on display through March 15.
