A Virtual Exhibit Devoted to the Critical Analysis and Production of Visual Materials

Produced by Students in Bob Bednar's Visual Communication class in the Department of Communication Studies at Southwestern University, Georgetown, Texas


This site is set up as a virtual gallery. You are now in the central "space" in the gallery, an exhibition of Student Projects produced in the Visual Communication class at Southwestern University.

Each Student Project site unfolds according to its own hypertextual structure, but at the bottom of each of the project home pages you will find a link back to this central Southwestern netWorks virtual exhibit page.
