UWG poster sale to aid Japan

CARROLLTON, Ga. -- A graphic design assignment at the University of West Georgia will also aid victims of the earthquake and tsunami in Japan.

The final assignment in Graphic Design 2, taught by professor David Short, was to develop a social or political poster.

"With the timing of the disaster and it having such a profound effect on so many people, I thought, why not merge the two," Short said.

Kevin Shunn, chairman of the art department, gave the go-ahead for the fundraising effort. The seven students in Short's class developed and refined their designs; art professors then chose the top three pictures.

Those three will be reproduced and offered for sale starting Thursday, May 12 at the art department's offices in UWG's Humanities building. Only 25 prints of each design will be made.

Each of the limited, autographed editions will be $20.
