The Graphic Design and Fine Arts Department of Cabrini University hosted Art + Effect, its third annual poster contest for high school students. Students in grades 9–12 submitted conceptual posters designed to bring awareness to mental health issues. The department chose this year’s theme due to the need to change the negative stigma that often surrounds mental health issues.
This year, Cabrini University received an impressive 186 student entries from 20 high schools in Pennsylvania and New Jersey.
“The Art+Effect Poster Contest is such a fantastic opportunity for high school students to be changemakers as they share their artistic talents and unique vision regarding societal issues,” said Jeanne Komp, Chair and Professor, Graphic Design and Fine Arts. “It is exciting to see the level of creativity grow each year.” The Judges’ Choice Award was presented to Domontaa Thomas of Hunterdon Polytech, seen at right. All entries were displayed in the Grace and Joseph Gorevin Gallery on the University’s campus.
