Poly-Kroma 2022, celebrating the Fine Arts and Visual Communication Design work by Cal Poly Pomona students with a virtual "2d3d+ Annual Juried Student Art Exhibition", and virtual "Industry Portfolio Showcase" — featuring the Class of 2022 Visual Communication Design majors' senior portfolios. Join us for our on-site exhibition on Thursday, April 28 - Sunday, May 22, 2022!
Due to the on-going effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, and to ensure all participants remain safe during this, hopefully, transitional period, the 2022 annual jury-reviewed 2D3D+ Student Art Exhibition (along with the Seniorʼs Industry Portfolio Showcase) will be initially digitally juried again this year, with its physical iteration to occur on-campus during the Spring 2022 semester with the University mandated “Safer Return” protocols in place. Please note that dates and events, submission terms and procedures are subject to change, or postponement, based on State and/or University directives at any given time. At this time, and until any further notice is provided, the below are the current Terms of Submission for this yearʼs 2D3D+.
Top Placing Award Winners will be granted monetary prizes through the Art Department. Typically, 1st, 2nd and 3rd place prizes are selected for each category in Visual Communication Design, and Fine Arts, respectively, for a total of 6 monetary prizes. Additional Honorable Mentions are decided by the jurors, in each category at their discretion
