A project by UW-Madison student Nicole Golownia has been selected for ARTIFACT [BOLD], a biennial national graphic design, new media, illustration, printmaking and the wider field exhibition that runs Jan. 24 through March 11 at High Point University in High Point, North Carolina.

ARTIFACT [BOLD] is co-hosted by the Department of Studio Art and Graphic Design at High Point University and the Darrell E. Sechrest Art Gallery, and will bring together designers delivering contemporary, innovative and thought-provoking work.

Golownia’s project, titled “Fashion Intervention: Posters Promoting Sustainable Style,” is an exhibition design that she originally developed for her Art 448 Spatial Graphic Design and Art 656 Design Portfolio and Professional Practice courses at UW- Madison. His research focuses on poster designs from 2016 to the present day that address the topic of fast fashion and textile waste.
