The undergraduate program in visual communications is a concentration within the fine arts major at GW, leading to a bachelor of arts. The program aims to provide students with a solid foundation in the basics of typography, layout and production. Technical skills and conceptual approaches are emphasized equally to equip students with the training for a career in graphic design.
Exhibition works include graphic posters, advertising and promotional designs, editorial designs, and other displays of digital and commercial art. This marks the first time the visual communications department has ever held a public exhibition of the work of seniors.
The Dimock Gallery is administered by the University Art Galleries and is an educational gallery that provides a setting for the display of art on the GW campus. With the active support of Department of Fine Arts and Art History students, the Dimock Gallerys new mission provides for a hands-on experience for curating and presenting their creative endeavors. Ongoing student and faculty participation provides a forum for students to curate, display and critique their creative efforts, and creates a learning environment in which students can organize exhibitions and learn about exhibition design with the advice of faculty and curators.
