Pho­tographs, oil paint­ings, videos, mini fur­ni­ture, and a sculp­ture made out of col­orful cough drops are among the art­work on dis­play at Gallery 360 in a new exhibit fea­turing the work of tal­ented North­eastern Uni­ver­sity seniors.

The annual Art + Design Senior Exhi­bi­tion is now on dis­play through June 1 at Gallery 360, located between Ell Hall and the Curry Stu­dent Center. The exhibit fea­tures works from 36 stu­dents in art, dig­ital art, studio art, and graphic design in the department’s joint pro­gram with the School of the Museum of Fine Arts.

You have every­thing from work in the medium of the Web, next to an oil painting, next to a bronze casting,” Nathan Felde, chair of the Depart­ment of Art + Design in the Col­lege of Arts, Media and Design, said at the exhibit’s opening recep­tion on Friday after­noon. “The variety of media is really impor­tant. It’s lovely work.”

Seniors were asked to submit three pieces of work to a selec­tion com­mittee com­prised of Art + Design fac­ulty, which decided what would be fea­tured in the show. The com­mittee then worked with each stu­dent to deter­mine the best way to dis­play each piece.

There are cer­tainly a wide variety of dis­ci­plines in the depart­ment,” said Thomas Starr, a graphic design pro­fessor who served on the selec­tion com­mittee. “We rec­og­nized great work when we saw it.”

Sophie Greenspan, AMD’14, has a number of pieces in the exhibit including her senior project in which she designed stickers, posters, a T-​​shirt, and an annual report for Bikes Not Bombs, a non­profit in Boston’s Jamaica Plain neigh­bor­hood aimed at using bicy­cles as a vehicle for social change.

This was essen­tially what I would do if I could reimagine the organization’s visual out­reach,” said Greenspan, who vol­un­teers there. Though the orga­ni­za­tion hasn’t seen her posters or stickers yet, it is printing the T-​​shirt she designed for its bike-​​a-​​thon in June.

Greenspan also won a com­pe­ti­tion among Northeastern’s graphic design stu­dents to design the Senior Exhi­bi­tion poster, which is also on dis­play in the gallery. Greenspan used chalk to make the design, which was then pho­tographed by Mettie Ostrowski, AMD’14.

We felt an open com­pe­ti­tion was great because it added another ele­ment to the stu­dents’ final semester,” Starr said.

Aaron Ten­bu­uren, AMD’14, also drew inspi­ra­tion from his senior project for his piece in the exhibit. Ten­bu­uren, a graphic designer major, cre­ated fur­ni­ture pieces that can be easily dis­as­sem­bled and stored so they don’t take up space when they are not being used.

A minia­ture ver­sion of a stool, desk, and book­shelf Ten­bu­uren cre­ated are in the show. “The thing that really sparked this was not having enough space in my apart­ments over the years,” he said. “With fur­ni­ture, every­thing is cre­ated as art. I wanted this to be func­tional and artistic at the same time.”
