Mota Italic Gallery
Friday July 12th
18:00 – late
The show will run July 12 – August 3
These will be available to pick up starting next Tuesday. I’ll leave them in the EDM offices, so just arrange a time with me (via email: firstname.lastname@example.org).
There is now a wait list for CO-LAB. The best way to ensure your spot is to leave your deposit no later than February 1st in my mailbox. The first 20 people who emailed have spots tentatively held until then, but after that, spots are first come, first serve.
There are still about 8 spots open for CO-LAB. To RSVP, please email email@example.com and bring a $40 deposit via cash or check by February 1st. You can leave it in my mailbox in the Art Department Office at City College. The deposit will go toward the budget for supplies and printing (!!!)
A little teaser: I have priced out some printing options, and CO-LAB participants can expect to get at least a couple of copies of our final publication, which will be professionally printed and bound.
More details have been worked out, but I’ll wait til we have a final list of participants before posting them. It’s going to be amazing!
P.S. Alumni ARE welcome to participate, so please spread the word to anyone you think would be interested.
CO-LAB is a two-day intensive graphic design workshop being held Saturday and Sunday, March 2nd and 3rd. (Location TBD)
Designed for EDM students who are looking to develop new skills in collaboration with a renegade, all-hands-on-deck spirit, this workshop promises to deliver fresh ways of thinking and making.
CO-LAB will be led by Professor Elizabeth Carey Smith of The Letter Office — also a City College EDM adjunct faculty member with a special obsession with type. Participants will craft an ambitious project in two days, learning from each other and instructor alike. Each participant will leave with a copy of the project that will distinguish their portfolios.
Watch this space for further updates about the nature of the project, what to expect on the weekend, how to prepare, and what space we’ll occupy.
For questions or to RSVP, please contact Elizabeth at firstname.lastname@example.org.
