RIT 50th Commemorative Coaster Set
RIT College of Art and Design, Industrial Design students designed this limited edition coaster set to celebrate the 50 years, 1968- 2018, that RIT has made its home on the Henrietta, New York campus.
Each of the five individual coasters represents a decade of growth in the university’s progression to its current building configuration today. The base is sourced from one of the pair of white oak trees that greeted students, guests, faculty and staff for 49 of those 50 years. The tree stood as a sentinel at the main entrance to campus until it was felled in a severe wind storm in 2017. One tree remains and the other lives on in this commemorative piece.
- Glass coaster - 4" x 4"
- Oak base - 4 1/4" x 5 1/4" x 1"
