Graphic Design Gallery Show_POSTER 2014

The “Graphic Design” gallery show will be up in the Giles Gallery from Feb. 12 – 28.  A reception will be held on Feb. 26 at 5 p.m.

The show aims to showcase a diagrammatic cross section of what composes a graphic designer and his or her career, specifically focusing on the work of Schaffhauser Design, a business whose work engages in a wide range of design possibilities but specializes in college athletics. Different methods of production will be explored alongside assorted mediums of expression in an effort to grasp both a chronological sense of individual and career development alongside a critical examination of the industry as a whole, taking into account future possibilities with the rise of new technology.

TSD Student Curator: John Taylor Schaffhauser

Competition offered at ‘What is Eco?’ exhibit reception

Rebecca Dunn Bryant, managing principal and senior consultant at Watershed (right), discusses her exhibit, “What is Eco?”

Rebecca Dunn Bryant, AIA, LEED AP, presented on sustainable architecture during the reception for the “What is Eco?” exhibit.

Bryant is the managing principal and senior consultant of Watershed, a firm out of Fairhope, Ala., that partners with architecture and engineering teams, building owners, developers and contractors to create green building solutions tailored to the specific climate and culture of the deep south.

“It’s so important to put down roots wherever you are,” said Bryant, who recently returned to her home state of Alabama after moving to Colorado to study sustainable design and social ecology and later working in San Francisco and Houston.

Bryant discussed the importance of stepping away from the checklist sometimes when building for LEED certification.

“Look at what’s around,” she said, adding it’s also important to consider how materials will age and if they can be reused as well as considering how the culture can influence architecture.

“Maybe we can create buildings that not only score off the charts with LEED but that the design helps you feel connected to the space.”

Design Challenge
Bryant wrapped up the discussion by issuing a design challenge open to all students in the College of Architecture, Art, and Design.

Four semi-finalists’ work will be posted on her blog, and the nearly 3,000 architects, contractors and other professionals who view the blog will be asked to vote on a winning project.

The winner will receive a solar backpack.  For more information, contact Alex Reeves at agr64@msstate.edu.

“What is Eco?” was presented by the MSU chapter of Tau Sigma Delta and was curated by Alex Reeves.  See the full lineup of TSD exhibits.
