Positive Space has been a
signature event for La Roche College's Graphic & Communication Design department
for many years. The show has expanded and evolved through the years - continuously being added and developed by each generation of students. A select group of seniors is chosen each year and tasked with picking a unique theme and marketing the event.
The show is
open to any current student that has taken at least one art or design
course in the last year. It is free to enter, and there is no limit to
the number of entries students can submit. Following the call for
entries, all pieces are evaluated by an outside panel of judges. The
judges decide the pieces to be included in the show and the pieces
that will receive awards. Each category (originally 5, but has since expanded to 10) has a third, second, and first
place prize. The top honor is the Best of Show award.
With the demolition of our beloved Graphic Design building, and the remodeling of the Cantelopes Art Gallery where each exhibition is shown, the theme for our 2008 show was construction and demolition.
