Two Webster University graphic design students, seniors James Butler and Rebecca Sachtleben, were selected to be part of a group show that kicked off St. Louis Design Week, The Dot Show: An Art Party With a Cause, at the Regional Arts Commission on Sept. 22.

Fifty artists from the St. Louis area were selected to be a part of the event. Artists were prompted to choose their favorite place in St. Louis that inspires them. After choosing a spot, they were given a seven-inch wooden dot, and were asked to complete the dot based on their chosen location.

This idea was inspired by STL’s 250th anniversary and all proceeds from the event were given to the Annual St. Louis AIGA Student Conference, Scholarship, and Mentor Matching Program.

All pieces were sold, making it a great start to STL’S Design Week. For more information about this event, visit the Department of Art, Design and Art History website.
