SOME PEOPLE JUST HAVE ALL THE TALENT (AND OTHER THINGS WE’VE LEARNED FROM ADAM EZEGELIAN)

Hue has recently been expending quite a bit of energy trying not to feel jealous of Adam Ezegelian, a Toy Design student who is making American Idol a must-watch this season.

Adam Ezegelian does FIT proud.

Our hometown hero: Adam Ezegelian does FIT proud.

In his audition, before launching into a freewheeling, revved-up rendition of “Born to Be Wild,” Ezegelian showed off a few spectacular caricatures he’d drawn of the judges.

Next came Hollywood Week, and he sang a version of “Demons” by Imagine Dragons. It’s hard to tell what J.Lo’s grimace meant, but they seemed happy with his performance.

And on group day, singing “Pretty Young Thing,” he killed it with buoyant, driving energy, nabbing himself a spot in the competition proper. Not only that, while the other contestants quaked in their boots, he seemed to be having a rollicking good time.

We can’t wait to see what vocal pleasures Ezegelian will bring to our televisions in the coming weeks!

ART AND DESIGN STUDENTS DID IT AGAIN (AND BY “IT” WE MEAN CREATE AWESOME WORK)

It’s mid-July, and FIT is (relatively) quiet. But Hue can’t forget that just two months ago, a stunning array of graduating student artwork from the School of Art and Design festooned FIT’s corridors and gallery spaces.

Enjoy some of our favorites in this slide show!

ALL THE SCHOOL’S A STAGE

FIT is in bloom this month — and we’re not talking boring old flowers.

Through May 23, the culminating work of 800 graduating Art and Design students is displayed all throughout the school; for example, Accessories Design and Photography in the Feldman lobby, more Photography in the library, Fine Arts in the Great Hall, Packaging and Fashion Design in the museum lobby, and, oh gosh, just take a gander at this chart.

Hue will post a few more times about the exhibition before its end; for today, here’s a sampling of stunners.

“Transience,” fantastically fluorescent shoes by Rachel Bohn, Accessories Design.

“Ode to Southern Summer,” a necklace by Daniell Hudson, Jewelry Design, made with real cicadas, just in time for the Jurassic Park rerelease this summer. Oh, and the cicada “swarmageddon.”

Spectacle in the Fine Arts exhibition hall. The green resin clutter of body parts is “Ouch,” by Dimitri Dimizas, Fine Arts, a commentary on our culture’s lust for violence.

The “Sammy” plush toy and the “Sammy Can’t Stand Her Bangs” book. Is it a response to Michelle Obama’s look at the inauguration this year?
