"Summer Preview" is an exhibit of work by rising seniors in PCA&D's BFA degree programs: illustration, fine art, graphic design, and photography.

This body of work is quite strong and among the grouping, eight illustration majors are represented.

One young man, whose work is represented in the exhibit, is juggling the demands of college, a family that includes two children under the age of six, and serving in the National Guard.

Tylor Heagy '14 is an illustration major who, in spite of missing two weeks of the spring semester due to training in Fort Benning, Georgia, was able to fulfill the curricular requirements and have work juried into the "Summer Preview" exhibit.

Tylor feels as though he's leading a double life -- in the National Guard and as a civilian college student. Actually, it's a triple life: add father to that mix and there's never a dull moment.

"It's difficult to juggle both worlds," Tylor recently related. "My military training has developed skills in discipline, focus and organization, which I apply to my work as a student at PCA&D."

He's looking forward to graduation next year. It'll be another tough phase -- to accomplish all that is required of him by the three worlds he inhabits -- but he's up to the challenge. Tylor is targeting a career in freelance illustration and a sample of his work is shown below.


Visit "Summer Preview" in PCA&D's Main Gallery from 8 a.m. - 4:30 p.m., M-F through August 2 (that's August First Friday, so be sure to start your evening of fun at PCA&D).
