Lincoln students to show off degree work

Art, design and media students from the University of Lincoln will showcase their work in a series of Degree Shows, kicking off on May 27.

Student animators, architects, artists, designers, conservators, film-makers, illustrators and photographers will be showing their degree work in a series of free exhibitions.

Some of their degree work has already been exhibited in Milan and New York, and now they’re bringing it back to show it off to the city that nurtured their talents.

Venues include the Architecture building, EMMTEC, and adjacent Harrison House on the University’s main Brayford Pool campus, Thomas Parker House opposite the Drill Hall on Freeschool Lane, Greestone Centre next to the Usher Gallery on Lindum Hill and Chad Varah House, off Steep Hill.

Conservation students will not only be exhibiting their conservation and restoration skills but also their involvement in major UK restoration projects, such as the St Pancras Renaissance London Hotel with the university’s commercial conservators, Crick-Smith.

Fans of animated films and CGI can see the imaginative creations of Lincoln’s final year Animation students in glorious big screen format during a special free screening at Lincoln’s Odeon cinema on June 9, starting at midday.

Product Design students were at the International Contemporary Furniture Fair in New York from May 14-17, just a month after they were in Milan for the Salone Satellite Furniture Fair.

Fashion undergraduates at the university held a fashion show at the Engine Shed on May 20. They’ll now take their work to London for the Graduate Fashion Show in London from June 5-8.

Contemporary Lens Media students will exhibit their photography at The Strand Gallery in London from July 6-10.

Admission to the University of Lincoln Degree Shows 2011 is free. Exhibitions are open daily from 10am-4pm (11am-3pm 1st weekend; closed 2nd weekend).
