Student Work in Architecture and Design, English, Fine Arts and Vocational Independence

The Summer Exhibition at NYIT Gallery 61
Student Work
June 1 – August 16, 2012
16 West 61st Street, 11th floor
 
 
Viewing hours are Monday – Friday 8 AM - 7 PM
 
Freshman students from the “foundations of inquiry” class were required to write a description of artwork they had seen in the gallery during the school year. They were asked to select a work of art, explain why they chose it and give their thoughts about the paintings and sculptures on view. One student has submitted a poem.
 
Fine Arts majors worked on communal murals.
 
The first day of class, students filled out an Introductory Survey to acquaint the instructor with their interests and background.   Afterwards on the back, they made a drawing of an object of their choice to show their ability to depict observed reality.
 
The instructor enlarged those drawings and collaged parts of them together to create one composite image.   A grid was imposed on it to form fifteen rectangular segments, each 2 3/4x3 ½”.   The grid segments were assigned to students to enlarge into 18x24” panels of gessoed bond paper. 
 
Students from the Vocational Independence Program were asked to paint self-portraits, using pastels, tape and gouache.
 
The Architecture and Design students submitted concept drawings and models of their finished building plans and sketch books about their daily studies and travel logs.
 
Students from the Interior Design school represented NYIT at the SaloneSatellite exhibition at the Milan Furniture Fair, April 17-22 in Italy. SaloneSatellite is the premier event for emerging designers from around the world. There they can show their work at the largest furniture trade fair of its kind. The NYIT exhibition included graffiti-inspired bicycle reflectors cut from large plexiglass panels.
