Designer Andrew Byrom Gets a Special Show at LCAD

The exhibit explores Byrom's use of text in his artwork.

Submitted by the Laguna College of Art & Design:

A new exhibition opening Thursday at the Laguna College of Art & Design showcases the experimental approach of award-winning designer Andrew Byrom. His sculptural/ dimensional letterforms will be installed in the gallery space alongside printed examples of these designs in use – for clients that have included The New York Times, UCLA Extension, The A+D Museum, and Sagmeister Inc.

Byrom's work explores the conventions of typographic design in three dimensions, using unfamiliar applications, materials and processes to define new forms. This development led to a natural foray into the field of environmental graphic design, where he has begun collaborating on projects for the built environment.

The show will be on display beginning Thursday, Feb. 21 at the Laguna College of Art & Design, 2222 Laguna Canyon Rd., Laguna Beach, (949) 376-6000; www.lcad.edu. Closes March 14.

Hours: Monday-Friday, noon-4 p.m. Closed Saturday and Sunday. Free Admission and Parking.

A reception with Andrew Byrom is scheduled for March 1 at 6:30 p.m., with a Byrom lecture following at 7:30 p.m.
