FIT’s gallery spaces and corridors are often filled with award-winning shows at The Museum at FIT as well as impressive student work, but the college’s world-class faculty traditionally show their own work in other venues.
Not so this month! From March 7 to 22, the School of Art and Design presents the second annual New Views: FIT Art and Design Faculty Exhibition, a juried show featuring more than 90 works, in the John E. Reeves Great Hall.
Perhaps the most remarkable thing about the exhibition is its eclecticism. Nontraditional artworks such as a maquette for a proposed Nelson Mandela memorial by Johannes Knoops, assistant professor of Interior Design, and a kickin’ pair of boots by Vasilios Christofilakos, assistant professor of Accessories Design, are positioned among traditional paintings, mixed-media pieces, and interactive installations from a total of 17 different Art and Design programs. It gives visitors a glimpse of FIT’s dazzling scope.
