Under the Umbrella is a curriculum-based project created by professors Anne Kong’s and Glenn Sokoli’s Visual Presentation and Exhibition Design students in which umbrellas have been used to highlight a sustainable solution that eliminates tons of umbrellas from reaching landfills each year. The exhibition calls for action that focuses on reuse, recycling, and lifestyles that support sustainability. Working in collaboration with Rentbrella, an umbrella sharing company, the students’ display uses 400 umbrellas.

This exhibition will be on view during the FIT’s Sustainability Conference and the students will participate in a Virtual Artist Talk as a conference program.
