The Art of Journalism on view at Cabell Library

November 24, 2014

The Art of Journalism is a new exhibition that features the Commonwealth Times' talented illustrators and journalist-artists. It is on display at James Branch Cabell Library, the first floor, through Jan. 31, 2015.
The idea behind the small gallery show is to expand the definition of "journalist" beyond the writer on deadline, the broadcaster doing a live stand-up or the photographer shooting a portait for a profile. Illustrators, cartoonists and artists can be journalists as well, according to exhibit organizer Cyrus Nuval. Nuval is executive editor of the Commonwealth Times. He is double majoring in criminal justice and psychology.  

At VCU, talented journalists come from VCU’s schools of fine arts and communication arts as well as from mass communications programs.  
Nuval came up with the idea. "I am doing this exhibit to show the VCU community that journalism doesn't always come in the form of writing or photography. Illustrations are also a form of Journalism and commentary and they can be just as thought-provoking and as articulate as written articles and columns. This exhibit also presents a collection of work of some of the CT's talented illustrators. In a way, this humble exhibit is also a thank you to them for their hard work this semester."
The exhibit also invites involvement and engagement with VCU's independent student-run news organization. Students are needed as writers, columnist, videographers, photographers or illustrators.
