A day for design

Project fair to be held next week

Design for America, Cleveland Institute of Art and Case Western Reserve University are teaming up to launch the first annual Design Day 2015.

Design for America (DFA) is a national network of student-led studios that create projects focused on making an impact on the community through human-centered designs. Currently, DFA has student involvement from CWRU, CIA and the Weatherhead School of Management.

At the event on April 23, visitors will be able to browse through multiple art projects and demos created by CWRU and CIA students. There will be projects from talented individuals in the University Circle area as well. If you want your project to be showcased at this event apply at the DFA’s website. (DFA is accepting projects on a rolling basis so artists are encouraged to apply earlier rather than later.)

Design Day 2015 highlights the creativity, entrepreneurship and talent in the people around us. The day will consist of fun and interactive events for students and community alike. There will also be food, music and free giveaways. Admission is free and open to the public, but guests can RSVP online. (The first 100 guests who RSVP will receive a custom water bottle at the event and be entered for a chance to win a 3-D printer pen.) Guests may also browse the site to get a first look at the projects that will be showcased at the event.
