Pam Barby is our Chairperson of the graphic design department in our Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) program. Pam developed a love for art and design at a young age and was heavily influenced by her grandfather, who was a painter.  Her expanded passion for design began during her college years. After graduating college, she was an in-house designer within the beauty industry, and then moved on to a small design studio creating a variety of print work. She began her freelance career in 2001. A few years later she was extended an invitation to teach at Pennsylvania College of Art & Design (PCA&D) in 2005 and has been an invaluable source of professional guidance and leader of all things in graphic design since her arrival.

"Much like Cynthia, I have a deep connection to the arts and I have friends and family that push me to do better every single day. I want to thank the Price family for being so generous." said PCA&D Illustration student Antoinette "Annie" Troller, of Effort, PA, the recipient of the Cynthia E Price Memorial Scholarship for the 2018-19 academic year.

 J. Richard "Rick" Price and his two sons Jacob and Jordan, along with their families, created the Scholarship last year to remember Cynthia, their wife and mother, an artist and craftswoman who worked, lived, and loved in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania.

 Country Meadows & Ecumenical Retirement Community  is hosting a display of PCA&D students’ illustrations at the WITF Media Center, 4801 Lindle Road, Harrisburg, PA 17111, from the 2016 contest they held with senior PCA&D illustration students. The exhibit will be up through Aug. 31.

In 2016,  Country Meadows  invited Pennsylvania College of Art and Design senior illustration students to participate in a cover art contest for their children’s activity book on understanding dementia—The Unforgettable Adventures of Grandma’s Cape. The students created illustrations that capture the unbreakable bond between a grandparent and grandchild, despite the effects of dementia.

While only one illustration was selected for the publication, Country Meadows was so impressed with the students’ various interpretations of dementia and relationships, that we made the decision to share all the beautiful pieces of art, with students’ permission.

The Unforgettable Adventures of Grandma’s Cape was written by Executive Director of Memory Support Joel Kroft, and tells the story about an awesome cape-wearing grandmother who bakes the best chocolate chip cookies and has a forgetting disease. Gabby Hoffman, illustration student, Class of 2016, was selected to illustrate the book.

Read more about the project here.

Copies of the publication are free to exhibit visitors as well as information on dementia.

You can explore the illustrations at WITF’s Public Media Center located at 4801 Lindle Road in Harrisburg, during the station’s regular business hours.
