Camarillo, Calif., Nov. 22, 2011 – The Art Program at CSU Channel Islands (CI) has announced its next exhibition featuring students’ digital illustration and painting artwork on exhibit through Dec. 1 at CI Exhibitions Gallery. 

Using Ray Bradbury’s novel as the source of inspiration, the student artists were tasked with reading “The Illustrated Man,” a collection of 18 short stories published in 1951.  Each student artist created two distinct digital based works of art: a poster cover and a visualization depicting a scene, setting, or interaction for their select short story.  Each poster is designed in a minimalist style, focusing attention on a central idea, object, or concept. As for the visualization, the student artists were free to explore any style and technique that best helps accomplish their idea. 

The CI Exhibitions Gallery is located at 92 Palm Drive in Old Town Camarillo. The gallery is open and free to the public Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. For additional information, contact the CI Art program at 805-437-8863 or art@csuci.edu.
