Liverpool School of Art & Design hosts one of the city’s largest free exhibitions as student creatives proudly showcase their final-year work.
More than 300 young artists and designers are exhibiting - many for the first time - at Degree Show 2022.
The show, which runs from May 26 to June 17, embraces Fine Art, Graphic Art, Illustration, Fashion, Architecture, History of Art and more and begins with a private viewing on Thursday 6 - 9pm.
The buzz around the art school's base at the John Lennon Building was rising this week as students put the final touches to pieces which will be seen by around 2,000 visitors to the shows.
'Really big deal'
BA Fashion Design final-year student Morgan Bevan, said: "The Degree Show is really important because it gives us a chance to showcase what we can do and have something really big to show for the last 7 or 8 months work."
Morgan's collection of men's and womenswear inspired by Victorian 'Mollyboy' homosexuals will also be on stage at a catwalk show on Friday, May 27 at the Invisible Wind Factory in the city. And she hopes the eye-catching garments will be chosen for the national showcase in London in June Graduate Fashion Week.
Paula McNulty, Operations Manager for Liverpool School of Art, said: "It's a fantastically exciting time of year for our graduating students. Having a great show can be a real boost especially when they get to talk to visitors, who are often artists, deisgners or employers working in the creative industries."
The show is hosted at John Lennon, Brownlow Hill, Mount Pleasant Campus and is open Mondays to Saturdays 10 – 5pm. (except Bank Holidays).
