The theme of this sixth annual event is “SAFE: DESIGN OVER FEAR” and is modeled after the exhibit “SAFE: Design Takes on Risk” at The Museum of Modern Art in New York City.
More than 150 first-year art and design students from RIT’s College of Imaging Arts and Sciences designed and constructed a wearable or portable design addressing a personal fear—ranging from a fear of germs, public speaking, or getting burned by hot coffee to a life without love. The 3-D projects are constructed of various materials including fabric, plastic and metal.
Prizes will be awarded for the best designs. The 3-D Extravaganza is sponsored by RIT’s College of Imaging Arts and Sciences, Provost’s Creative Arts Fund and Student Affairs Learning Support grant.
MEDIA NOTE: In addition to the 3-D Extravaganza Show, there will be two other photo opportunities on Thursday, April 26. Students will be doing final critiques of their projects from 9 a.m. to noon and 2 to 5 p.m. in the James E. Booth Building, room 2530. Media coverage is welcome.
