Celebrating the Life and Works of Gordon Parks

Exhibition Info

About the Exhibition

This Gordon Parks Themed Exhibition is open to all to all work, big or small, inspired the work of the visionary creator. For this show we invited you, COMD students, to respond to the life and work of Parks in any medium. Or rather, to choose as your “weapon”.

The response was completely overwhelming! You have spoken in a resounding voice, across all of the creative disciplines we teach. You, like Parks are using your creative “weapons to stand against the things you dislike about America”. We are so very proud of all of you: our artists, illustrators, designers, photographers, filmmakers, communicators, problem-solvers, change-makers and strategists. 

Best in Show and Honorable Mention honors will be awarded during the April 29th Panel Discussion.  Visit the Gordon Parks themed Student Show  site to view the full exhibition.
