The Colorful Influence of Susan Daykin at the Fashion Institute of Technology’s Art and Design Gallery celebrates the artwork and teaching of Fine Arts Professor Susan Daykin. Throughout the 52 years she has worked at FIT, her impact on the Fine Arts program, its students, and the college at large has been nothing short of profound. This exhibition will include a survey of work by Daykin and nine of her former students: Jackie Bertucci, Jade Chan, Abigail DeVille, Rachel Kamali Dilmanian, Rebecca Eden, Carla Lynk, Tushar Nath, Pamela Stoicev, and Vivian Vasquez. 

The exhibition will also include sculptures and objects from her own collection. Daykin acquired these objects from artisans she met over the years and throughout her travels. Her collection has deeply informed her visual sensibilities and are reflected in the breadth and colorful influence of her creative practice and teaching.

A panel discussion with Daykin, her colleagues, and former students will be scheduled at some date during the exhibition.

The Colorful Influence of Susan Daykin is curated by Fine Arts Associate Professor Joel Werring and an alumna from FIT’s Art Market Studies MA program, Caroline Teck.
