Young Digital Artists Bring Circus to Life with Artwork Exhibit at Duquesne

The TeleCommunity Studio program will feature an art exhibition created by local students, ages 10-18, that will showcase graphic design, animation and other digital artwork by young artists.

This year's theme, Circus World, features a selection from a year of work by young students bringing the animation of a circus theme to life. The work will be on display in the Les Idees Gallery of the Duquesne University Union from Monday, Nov. 4, to Saturday, Nov. 16. Members of the TeleCommunity Summer Studio will be at the exhibit on Saturday, Nov. 16, at 3 p.m., to explain the works as well as the techniques and tools used to create them.

TeleCommunity is a no-cost arts outreach program for young artists. On weekends and during the summer, students applied themselves in studio sessions on campus with the McAnulty College and Graduate School of Liberal Arts. Volunteer teachers and mentors supported them in their design processes and use of graphics software to realize their visions. Student art can be viewed online.

For more information, email Robert Dunn, director of TeleCommunity.
