"I think this exhibit is a great opportunity for students to get appreciation, and it is also good for traveling artists who would like to see what Hattiesburg has to offer," Amy Baggett, a senior art student at the school, told the news source. "So far we've had positive reactions to all of the works, I think people are impressed."

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, prospective graphic designers can expect to earn nearly $43,000, which was the average annual salary for professionals in this field in 2008.
