Exhibition Design Studio – Spring 2011

Exhibit Design students toured Creative Capital exhibit at Design Museum Boston today. Derek Cascio and Sam Aquillino, founders and directors of DMB, shared process and insights about envisioning creative, engaging public art and design education for Boston and New England. Walking us through a variety of design disciplines Sam and Derek presented projects and displays from OXO, Proverb, Korn Design and CBT Architects, and many more, all of great impact from the Boston area. Both Derek and Sam discussed story telling as a leading thread in curating any exhibition as well as innovative potential exhibition spaces around the city. Thanks so much guys!

This visit follows an earlier February trip to MIT museum exploring the MIT150 exhibition designed by Malcolm Grear Designers with an introduction by curator Debbie Douglas, and a peek at Types We Can Make (MIT Compton gallery) exhibition, a selection of contemporary Swiss type design curated by ECAL.
