This year’s artwork from over 300 students across 20 BA (Hons) courses includes Design & Applied Arts, Digital Media, Fine Art & Photography and Visual Communication, and work from some Foundation Degree and HND students. The show opens on Saturday.
Qucie Green, Marketing and Recruitment Officer for the School of Art & Design, said: “There are so many outstanding examples of student work. The degree show has something interesting for everyone and we’re expecting thousands of visitors over the next week.”
The show includes a record of “recession sounds” by Fine Art students. This features throw away material and things bought from pound shops. In another exhibit, Video and Film Production and Computer Games Design and Interactive Media students have worked with Wolverhampton Wanderers Football Club. They produced a short video to promote healthy eating.
