The work of more than 70 faculty members from across these disciplines will be on view from Monday, February 27 through Sunday, March 5, 2017 in the John E. Reeves Great Hall.

Diverse in vision, media, and execution, the works demonstrate visual investigations that form the studio practices of the faculty, with a particular emphasis on pieces that underscore each artist’s current point of view.

New Views reflects of the diversity of talent among the School of Art and Design’s faculty—many of whom are professional artists and designers—as well as FIT’s innovative curriculum, which is collaborative and interdisciplinary,” said Joseph Seipel, interim dean of the school. “The exhibition is a cross-section of outstanding work across a variety of media, and offers insights into the experience that students can have at FIT.”
