Posters display Let Justice Lead and Freedom Roar!
University Park, Pa-"Celebrating Martin Luther King (MLK) Jr. Day and Black History Month," an exhibit featuring posters designed by Penn State students in the University's 28th annual MLK poster competition, is on display in the entry lobby of Pattee Library, January 11 through February 28, 2013. This year's theme is "Let Justice Lead and Freedom Roar!"
The student posters were created in Professor Lanny Sommese's GD 400, Time and Sequence course. This annual exercise for Sommese's students exposes them to real-world design with a fixed deadline and client and prescribed project specifications. It also gets the students involved in a public service project-something that is very important to Sommese.
The display illustrates a variety of approaches to this year's theme and demonstrates the abilities of Penn State design students, including Alicia Adamerovich, Erika Fischerkeller, Arielle Goft, Dana Heller, Leah Herman, Spencer Kimble, Kate Kreisher, Jaclyn McKay, Michael Morris, Kim Price, Darcy Rose, Robby Sherman, Kat Simpson, Jingjing Wu, and Asia Wynar.
Judges from the commemoration's planning committee selected as the winning poster the design by Arielle Goft, a senior graphic design major at Penn State. Her poster features a band drum major leading a large group of people. Goft's design has been duplicated on buttons and posters to be distributed for Penn State's 2013 celebration.
