The FGCU Design Club will be opening their exhibit, "Design:Love," in the FGCU ArtLab the same evening. This exhibition is a showcase of work from members of the newly formed FGCU Design Club, a platform for all levels of student-produced design from introduction to advanced. Design Club students come from a variety of majors at FGCU and this show reflects the cross-disciplinary nature and mission of the club. Works in this show originate from projects created from within the Digital Media Design curriculum, as well as projects produced for professional clients and experimental design works.

The ArtLab will be open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. ArtLab is located on the west end of FGCU's Library.
