Exhibition: Fast Forward: Selected Work by Illustration Faculty Alumni — Opens
August 15–September 25
Art and Design Gallery
Fast Forward features the work of 13 FIT BFA and AAS alumni who are also current or very recent FIT Illustration Department faculty members. After attending FIT, these artists have taken quite different professional paths and have returned to FIT to share their experiences with the students. The work shown here is a mix of commercial commissions and portfolio pieces—a rich diversity of concepts, media, and applications. Included are fashion, tattoo, editorial, and book illustrations, as well as personal artworks. The range and variety of the work reflects the depth and breath of the Illustration department curriculum—a curriculum that stresses core skills and inspires students with diverse creative sensibilities.
We are honored to show the work of Ed Soyka, who served as the chair of the Illustration Department from 2000 to 2021. Professor Soyka hired many of these artists and worked to shape the current curriculum.
