Poster show by second-year Cap U illustration and design students

April 23–May 12

Opening Reception: Tuesday, April 23, 6–8 p.m.

*Please note there is no Meet the Artists for this exhibition

Growth—physical or mental, figurative or literal—is something we have all experienced. Whether it’s caring for a plant, overcoming obstacles, or advancing through life, we’ve been shaped into who we are today by growing.

IDEA Interprets is an annual poster show and sale hosted by the students of Capilano’s IDEA School of Design. Each year features art and design centred around a common theme and raises funds to further the students’ artistic pursuits.
