Weissman, who helps coordinate the event and secures supplies for the students’ designs, said they work with all types of media, and each instructor has a different spin on how to teach the concept.
“It’s just one part of their semester – a very large part,” she said. “It’s exciting to see what they do and the processes and media they use. The students are taking all the skills they’ve learned in their 2D courses and are incorporating them into 3D concepts in their sculptural outfits.”
The School of Art and Design will award two $1,000 scholarships to the winners of the show, thanks to donations by industry partners, alumni and community members.
Hands-on research on display
A Polytechnic Student Exhibition, featuring applied research posters and class projects from more than 70 students across 20 programs, will be on display in Micheels Atrium, Jarvis Hall Tech Wing hallway and Jarvis Hall main lobby.
“The multibuilding display seeks to draw connections between programs and the types of cross-disciplinary opportunities students and student research teams are able to do in their courses,” said Tamara Brantmeier, associate provost and vice chancellor of Student and Partner Engagement, event coordinator.
