Trash is “in” at Mississippi State University’s eighth annual Trashion Show.

Free and open to the public, the event takes place Wednesday [Nov. 9] at 7 p.m. in Giles Hall.

The National Organization of Minority Architecture Students (NOMAS), in collaboration with MSU fashion design and merchandising students, will work to design custom outfits made of recycled goods and modeled by MSU’s Fashion Board.

The event’s theme, “Diametric Parallels,” encourages designers to discover something common between two seemingly opposite materials.

Past creations have been assembled from bottle caps, straws, soda cans, newspaper, playing cards and more.

“It’s a creative look at design elements with the incorporation of unconventional materials that promote sustainability,” said Diondria Bingham, senior architecture major from Pearl who is serving as NOMAS president.

For questions or further information about the show, contact Bingham at dmb514@msstate.edu

November 1st, 2016 Comments Off on CAAD hosts elementary students from Saltillo

The MSU College of Architecture, Art and Design hosted a field trip for Ms. Ginger Summers’s Discovery classes at Saltillo Primary School.

The class visited Professor Robert Long in the ceramics studio for a tour of the facilities, including the glazing process and kiln. The group was also treated to demonstrations, and several students were able to get their hands dirty and make pinch pots with the clay.

The students also toured the School of Architecture in Giles Hall and did several hands-on projects with current students, including making chairs out of giant blocks, construction paper houses and competing to see which group could put together a 3D puzzle house first.

The visit concluded with a trip to the Depot Art Gallery’s current exhibit, “Peri Schwartz: Paintings • Drawings • Prints,” and lunch in The Junction.
