Darn he's a good looking boy!In addition to the Fashion Design Show, works from many other senior artists and designers are on display at THE SHOW: 129th STUDENT EXHIBITION. The Show is open through September 6th. Ian is only a junior and elected to have his piece outside the main display area. If you pop in be sure to check it out. To left, inside the main doors to the Canzani Center, in the lobby, on the wall. In case you are wondering, you're allowed to touch it. It's a kinetic art piece - made to move. The main marble piece is securly supported on a wheeled base (he says it won't fall off - really you should touch it) Just swing the pendulum... One little boy almost did. You could see the wheels turning in his head... I was afraid to touch it! You never touch stuff in a museum - they toss you! He was very excited about his use of symbols. He got a book of symbols for Christmas from Uncle Bob and Aunt Linda and really enjoyed the depth of meaning behind them. Trying to communicate with out words is really what art is about anyway - just another layer.
"What do you think of the symbols Mom?"
"Cool! They spell Ian!"
"Um... no they don't."
"Yes, they do!"
