The school year at Rochester Institute of Technology will finish with a creative flourish as each student in RIT’s School for American Crafts showcases their projects during “Walkthrough.” The annual event will be held from 4 to 6 p.m., Monday, May 21, in the James E. Booth Building on RIT’s campus. The event is free and open to the public.

All the graduate and undergraduate students in the school’s clay, glass, metals and wood programs will display their projects from the entire year. Visitors are also welcome to walk through the school’s metals, wood, ceramics and glass studios located throughout the Booth Building. Walkthrough is an annual tradition that began more than 20 years ago.

“Walkthrough is a time at the end of the school year for our students to celebrate their hard work,” says Andy Buck, professor of wood in RIT’s School of American Crafts. “It’s also a chance for people to visit the school and see the high caliber of finished pieces produced by our talented student artists across a variety of disciplines.”
