NYIT Presents Annual Summer Exhibition of Student Design Work

NYIT Presents Annual Summer Exhibition of Student Design Work

New York, N.Y. (June 1, 2010) – New York Institute of Technology (NYIT) presents its annual summer exhibition of student work. This year, students in the School of Architecture and Design and College of Arts and Sciences’ Department of Fine Arts participated in the exhibition, which runs from Thursday, May 20 to Thursday, August 26.

Architecture student work from Professor Jason Hwang’s first-year and thesis courses will be showcased. “The first-year project reveals the very first act of space conception,” said Professor Hwang, “while the final thesis projects represent all the resources and experience the students have gained, and are perhaps the first works which hint at their architectural maturity.”

Fine arts students in Professor Patty Wongpakdee class will display their book cover projects, depicting the theme “blank like me.” Students were asked to repurpose a discarded book into an art object that reflects their artistic inner self. Along with telling each student’s unique “story,” the covers incorporate one or more of alterations, including: cutting into, painting on, and adding elements.

“I wanted students to experience the power of scale in art since most of their paintings are normally 18 x 24,” said James DeWoody, professor of fine arts at NYIT. “Collaborating on the design and execution of a big project helps students experience what it is like to work with a production team on a shared goal. The unexpected result is the visual excitement of different painting styles at work in the same piece.”

The summer exhibition will take place at NYIT’s Gallery 61, located at 16 W. 61st St. on the 11th floor, and is open Monday – Friday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. For more information, please contact Jennifer Mitchell at jmitchel@nyit.edu.
