JOPLIN, Mo. - "Vivid: The Fine Arts Magazine" is produced by students in the Department of Communication at the University. It took more than eight months of planning, designing, interviews, and writing to get a final print ready. This edition features a profile of an artist, a first-person narrative, and an exclusive update on plans for a downtown arts district.
"I was really impressed with their dedication, and I'm continually impressed with the amount of talent these guys have.
