NEWS FROM TEXAS STATE: Texas State students host GrafikIntervention in Dunbar District
Texas State University

March, 2012

The Communication Design students in Roselynn Newton’s Typographic Design course at Texas State University-San Marcos will host a Grafik Intervention on Mar. 22 from 8 to 10 p.m. on the corner of West Martin Luther King Drive and South Comanche Street in San Marcos.

 

 

Grafik Intervention, originally created by a Ferris State University assistant professor, William Culpepper, uses digital projections to engage the public through visually dynamic and compelling methods.

 

 

Texas State students were asked to find local, abandoned buildings and transform them, for one night, into a visual commentary that will engage the community into a discussion regarding the state of the sites.

 

 

The three sites selected by students are located in the Dunbar Historic District: the 1884 Hays County Jail, the 1908 First Baptist Church and the 1930 Ulysses Cephas’ historic home. Students will share the history of the abandoned buildings through the projection of images on the structures themselves.

 

 

“I hope to show the citizens of San Marcos that as a body of students, we are actively involved in the community,” said Seth Davis, senior in the typographic design course.

 

 

The event is free and open to the public.
