Works of 19 fine art seniors specializing in graphic design at Mississippi State are on display April 26-May 4 at the Cullis Wade Depot Art Gallery.

Free to all, the second-floor “(dis)ARRANGE” exhibition at the university’s Welcome Center celebrates the conclusion of the students’ art department studies.

The wide array of portfolio works includes posters, illustration, packaging, editorial design, typography, advertising design, visual identity design, web design, video work and self-promotional materials. In addition to the physical displays, individual portfolio books will be available for viewing on opening night. For a preview, visit

A 5-7 p.m. opening reception in the students’ honor will be held Tuesday [April 26] at the Cullis Wade gallery. Complimentary refreshments provided by MSU’s State Fountain Bakery will be served.

According to student exhibitor Casey Jennings, “This year’s exhibition theme ‘(dis)ARRANGE’ is inspired by the chaotic and unrestrained feeling in grunge typography, the most memorable style from the decade in which we grew up.”
