Poly-kroma  is an annual event celebrating the Fine Arts and Visual Communication Design at Cal Poly Pomona's Kellogg University Art Gallery. The program consists of two distinct shows:   2d3d+  (aka a Juried Student Art Exhibition), and   Industry Day  (aka Senior Students Portfolio Showcase).

The jurors, who consist of art, design and curatorial industry professionals, select the best work by students and determine the award-winning entries. This year’s   2d3d+ Student Art Exhibition  Jurors are: Fine Artist and Sculptor David Jang, Graphic Designer and AIGA President Patrick Fredrickson; and Student Aluma and Graphic Designer Kathryn Izquierdo-Gallegos.
