Event: The City of Santa Clarita’s City Council, Arts Commission and Arts & Events Office will host an artist’s reception for the exhibition “Visit Santa Clarita: Illustrated Travel Posters,” which is currently on display at City Hall.
 
For the exhibit, COC graphic and multimedia design students were asked to design posters about the many activities and amenities the City of Santa Clarita has to offer. Their talent and skills -- not to mention their hometown spirit -- is evident in the series of vibrant posters included in the display.
 
The body of work -- created with computer illustration software -- derives inspiration from vintage, modern and contemporary styles and demonstrates a wide variety of traditional illustration techniques such as watercolor, pastel and oil painting.
 
During the reception, attendees will get the chance to meet the talented students behind the artwork and chat with other art enthusiasts. Light appetizers will be offered.
 
College of the Canyons Chancellor Dr. Dianne Van Hook will formally introduce the collection to city officials at approximately 7 p.m.
The exhibit will be on display through Nov. 16, 2012.
 
Note to Editors: Photo opportunities will be available.
