Graduating Students Present Design Exhibition
'If/Then' is on display May 11, 17 and 18 at the Gallery at Market East in Center City Philadelphia
May 3, 2012
"If/Then" is a showcase of more than 80 design solutions created by graduating students at the University of the Arts who ask the question, "If a new problem presents itself, then how can it be responded to uniquely?"
The exhibition operates under the belief that "design" is a solution to a set of distinct pressures. Featuring work by students in the University's Graphic Design, Industrial Design, Master of Industrial Design, Multimedia, and Museum Exhibition Planning and Design programs, "If/Then address six different design problems: universal versus specialized needs, social issues, urban exploration and repurposing, public and historic influences, the development of networking and identity, and storytelling.
The students' work will be on display at the Gallery at Market East in Center City Philadelphia (9th and Market Streets) on May 11 from 6 to 9 p.m. during the opening reception, May 17 from 4 to 7 p.m., and May 18 from noon to 5 p.m. during the closing reception.
