Visions of Rapture 2018: The Online Exhibit

The third annual Visions of Rapture exhibit celebrates the music from Baylor’s Black Gospel Music Restoration Project, specifically the 45 rpm discs that were released without cover art during their original pressings. Working with students in Prof. Andrew Baker’s ART 3333 course on Type and Design, the project showcases their visions of what cover art would look like for these songs if they were designed and released in record stores either in the 1960s or today.

Explore the students’ artwork from the 2018 exhibit below, and see the link at the bottom of this post to listen to the songs that inspired the designs.

The physical exhibit for Visions of Rapture is available through summer 2018 in Moody Memorial Library. Our thanks to Prof. Baker, graphic design intern Kacey Byrne and exhibits coordinator Erik Swanson for their invaluable contributions to this exhibit.
