PCA&D senior illustration students create surrealistic paintings for Hershey Gardens

March 3, 2014

PCA&D senior illustration majors have created 24 four-paneled surrealistic paintings that celebrate nature and the changing of the seasons for Hershey Gardens in order to help promote the gardens during all four seasons. The project, titled "Four Surreal Seasons", was inspired by the exquisite corpse where each collaborator adds to the composition and the pieces join together to create a whole. With the guidance of Illustration Department Chair Robert Hochgertel and faculty member and PCA&D alumnus Jon Yeager, students were exposed to this client driven assignment. In conjunction with the illustration department, graphic design students created a logo to promote the gardens exhibit. Opportunities for real world projects occur within each major and allows PCA&D students to gain a unique beneficial experience. The Hershey Gardens exhibit will be open for viewing starting May 23 and will continue through September 28, 2014.
