April 3, 2019 –The citizens of Lexington may notice something new up in windows, doors and public spaces across town. For its second year, the Lexington Farmers Market board chose a poster among the designs of Davidson County Community College students to represent their summer 2019 season.
Four different posters were presented to the board and other community members in the final week of March on the Davidson campus of DCCC.
“This was a really, really difficult decision,” Lexington Farmers Market board member Jennifer Rosencrans said. “We would be exceptionally proud to have any of the posters represent us across town.”
Four students from DCCC’s digital media production program worked with board members throughout the semester to research and refine their designs. The board chose student Amber Moore’s design to represent this year’s season.
“When I first started this process, I was nervous,” Moore said. “Yet after exercising my problem solving skills through research and knowledge of the Lexington Farmers Market as well as my own personal creativity and style, I was inspired to keep going. Now I know I can continue to learn and grow as a graphic designer.”
The posters of digital media production students Howard Bostian IV, Monica Hall and Zachary Allred will also be showcased with Moore’s design at the farmers market.
This is the second year the farmers market’s board members tasked the students in DCCC’s digital media production program with designing their season’s poster.
“This is what community colleges do,” Margaret Annunziata, DCCC Vice President of Academic Affairs, said. “We serve as a partner of this community. We serve to not only empower students to meet their own personal goals, but to also take what they learn here and apply it to strengthen and enliven their larger community.”
All of this year’s posters will be on display at Lexington Farmers Market at the Depot on 129 Railroad Street in Lexington from their opening day on May 4 to mid-October.
