FIT Art and Design Graduating Student Exhibition 2022
This 2022 Graduating Student Exhibition (GSE) presents the work of more than 600 student graduates in 16 areas of study from the School of Art and Design. The work is the culmination of each student’s unique experience in FIT’s diverse, challenging, and demanding undergraduate art and design programs. Featuring juried, award–winning, and thesis projects, this presentation is the manifestation of several years of research, experimentation, critical thinking, and artistic proficiency. The Graduating Student Exhibition advances the college’s philosophy that integrates practice in industry with theory and teaching inside the studio.
Under the Umbrella
The exhibition, Under the Umbrella, was a curriculum-based project. Students worked with the umbrella concept to highlight a sustainable solution that eliminates tons of umbrellas from reaching landfills each year.
The exhibition called for action and focuses on reuse, recycling, and lifestyles that support sustainability. The exhibit included sensory elements that made it "rain" in the lobby via sound components.
