CIA will feature Dinner By Design – Art of the Table, an exhibition highlighting new and innovative work by accomplished student artists and designers working in glass, clay, metals and other materials. Featured will be flatware, vessels, dinnerware and other works designed and created by CIA students.
CIA Professor Matthew Hollern said the design work will not be typical table settings. “The table is probably the most interesting project for us when we talk about our material culture. It provides a beautiful opportunity for students to explore a wide range of objects and materials and concepts associated with our daily rituals,” he said. When last presented in 2009, Dinner by Design delighted gallery visitors who were charmed by students’ fresh ideas about everyday objects.
And on April 22 at 7:30p.m., students will strut their stuff – in the form of accessories, design, and conceptual art – when CIA’s annual runway show flows through the lobby and gallery.
The runway show has become a perennial crowd pleaser at CIA, highlighting some of the most innovative works of art and design created by students from several different majors. The runway show is orchestrated by the students in the Fashion Jewelry Accessories course, which is focused on new and novel materials and technologies, including digital design and 3D printing.
