Recent Stephens graduate Michelle Marcum designed the artwork for this year’s Art in the Park, an annual art festival hosted by the Columbia Art League.
Art in the Park is June 7-8 at Stephens Lake Park and will feature ceramics, fibers, jewelry, paintings, prints, photography, sculptures and other works from 110 artists.
Each year, the league solicits designs for the event from Assistant Professor Kate Gray’s graphic design students. Diana Moxon, executive director of CAL, critiques them before narrowing down the finalists.
The CAL Board of Directors makes the final decision.
Marcum’s design was “amazing,” Moxon said. It combines elements of art—a pallet and paintbrushes—with the trees, birds and nature that Art in the Park attendees will enjoy.
Marcum said she appreciated working with community clients during her time as a graphic design student and hopes to continue to volunteer her talents even after she begins her graphic design job in June.
Gray’s students this year also worked with Columbia Regional Airport, Columbia Transit and Columbia Public Schools.
