Mick Jagger attends LCC's Bright Sparks Exhibition
THE famous parents of model and LCC student Georgia May Jagger, Jerry Hall and Mick Jagger, were amongst the 1,000 visitors that attended The Bright Sparks exhibition this week to see their daughter's photographs on display.
The final works of 472 LCC’s Foundation Diploma Art & Design students were on show and covered a mix of disciplines including film, animation, graphic design, photography, illustration, book art and surface designs.
Among the exhibits were three photographs of Georgia May Jagger, the daughter of Rolling Stones legend Mick Jagger and supermodel Jerry Hall. Her famous parents were amongst the 1,000 visitors to have a look at the Bright Sparks exhibition, but came on separate days.
Hall attended the exhibition including Georgia May’s work on the opening night of Monday (16 April), whilst her rock and roll dad visited the university on Wednesday (18 April) to check out his daughter’s photographs.
Bright Sparks is the first of four upcoming LCC 2012 Summer Show’s, curated around the central theme of the generation of ideas.
Dave Sowerby, Head of Foundation said: “The rich and various works make this year’s exhibition one of the best in quality - the show is literally buzzing with ideas.”
Works from LCC students from four different schools of design were on display for four days until the 19 April 2012.
The Foundation Diploma in Art and Design encourages students to explore and experiment within a wide range of project-based art, design and media-bases activities.
