Graphic Design Students to Race the Clock at Art Show and Auction

February 8, 2013

Students from RRC’s Graphic Design program will go on a 24-hour creative spree this weekend, while showcasing their talents at a unique “live” art event at The Forks.

The eleventh annual Forks Market Student Art Show and Auction takes place Saturday, Feb. 9 and Sunday, Feb. 10.

The art show component runs Saturday from 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., and Sunday from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. The live auction, hosted by Jon Ljungberg, runs Sunday from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m.

During the art show, second-year Graphic Design students will have 24 hours to create original works of art using a variety of drawing and painting techniques. Once completed, their works will be auctioned off to the highest bidder, with proceeds going towards Winnipeg Harvest and the RRC Graphic Design Students’ Graduation Fund.
