The Frontier of Life: Opening Reception + Panel

October 19, 2022 5:00 PM – 6:00 PM

Student Union

The Frontier of Life will be on display at the student union from October 17-21. The exhibit includes a series of posters created by Ukrainian illustrators created after the start of the recent war. All illustrators are members of the Pictoric Illustrators Club (PIC) — a proactive community of Ukrainian illustrators, graphic designers, and artists. Within this context, young illustrators use their art as a weapon. Their art reflects their fears, feelings, and pain. You can also view the artwork online at
Opening Reception:
