KCAI Senior Show

KCAI Graphic Design Class of 2021 Senior Show the spaces between
Online Exhibition Launch and Reception

We, the KCAI GD class of 2021, warmly invite you to attend the launch and reception for the spaces between, an online exhibition of our work.

The reception will be held remotely via Zoom on Friday, May 14 at 4pm CST. It will include a guided tour of our online exhibition website, a deep dive into our projects, and exclusive access to our online store, featuring our custom line of print-on-demand merchandise.

As designers we touch on the idea of physical, mental, and emotional “spaces” we’ve existed in and where we wish to exist.

Follow us on Instagram @kcaigraphicdesign for regular updates. At 6pm every day from Sunday, May 9 to Thursday, May 13, two senior students will interview one another on Instagram Live. Join us for this series of conversations to learn more about who we are as creatives and how we’ve come to be in the past four years.

If you and your team would like to schedule a VIP tour of the virtual exhibition, feel free to send us an email at design@kcai.edu!
