Celebrating Kutztown's Bicentennial!

In celebration of Kutztown's Bicentennial, we are currently displaying art works depicting the lives of Kutztown's locals and businesses. 

Kutztown University Communication Design Seniors concentrating in illustration complete a half-semester course entitled Visual Essay, taught by Elaine Cunfer, in which the students use illustration as a medium for reportage.

The work exhibited in the Eckhaus Gallery represents much of the artwork produced in this class over the past 2 years.

Local and businesses featured: Salon Joey, Rodale Institute, Topton Barbershop, Firefly Bookstore, Verna Dietrich (Dietrich Meats), The Kutztown Historical Society, The Sacred Oak, Bamboola, Crystal Cave, Uncle Joe's Pizza, Roadside America, Young One's, The Foliage Farm,  Kutztown's School Spirit, Mary, Lester Sheetz, Deturk Hardware, and the Bower's Chili Pepper Festival.

Students were assigned to create an illustration-based visual essay in a poster form.  These posters could profile any aspect of historical or cultural significance, a unique life experience, and/or and interesting person in Kutztown (or very local area) outside the traditional student microcosm.

Students were expected to go out into the local community and interview their subjects, as well as research life, culture, and folklore of their subjects.

Through creating these posters, students gained a new appreciation of their lives in Kutztown and the history of many of the businesses and buildings they see on a regular basis.  Please enjoy the fruits of their labor!
