DUBUQUE, IOWA (March 29, 2023) — The newest exhibit at the University of Dubuque’s Bisignano Art Gallery provided students in the Department of Digital Art and Design an opportunity to step away from the classroom’s client-driven projects and to create individual pieces of artwork.

“The Edge Show” is free and open to the public through Tuesday, April 11, 2023. Artwork created by around thirty students are on display. The digital images and illustrations include digital photography, imagined landscapes, contemporary icons, expressive portraits, and abstract expressions.

“‘The Edge Show’ is an annual spring event where all DART majors are required to submit one digital artwork that they have created for the show they cannot use a class project. The DART program’s emphasis is on client-driven projects not in the fine arts. ‘The Edge Show’ allows our students the experience of presenting digital expressions in a fine arts format for the gallery. Students have an outlet to explore composition, process, and media outside the classroom using their objectives and establish their visual voice to communicate through image,” said Sheila Sabers MAC, head of the Department of Digital Art and Design and assistant professor of digital art and design.

Gallery hours are 12-5PM, Monday through Friday, during the academic year. The art gallery is also open in conjunction with all major events in John and Alice Butler Hall, Heritage Center.

“The Edge Show” will also be available virtually at http://gallery.dbq.edu.
