Shopping bag exhibition explores design and function

Monday, October 30, 2017

A new exhibition at the Cary Graphic Arts Collection examines the design, function, and visual impact of shopping bags from the 1960s to today. Famous designers including Andy Warhol, Yoko Ono, and Keith Haring designed some of the bags on display, part of a collection of nearly 1,200 bags donated by J. Scott Patnode last Spring. This collection includes shopping bags from museums, boutiques, food service, and more, using a variety of manufacturing and printing techniques — making it an excellent teaching tool for students across many disciplines at RIT.
