Product Design Senior Show
May 18, 2016
The 2016 Product Design senior class, the third graduating class from this exciting program, will present their thesis work on Friday, May 27th in the Leonard Pearlstein Gallery (3401 Filbert Street) from 4:30-7:30pm. The unique projects are a culmination of seven months of dedicated work, and they epitomize the individual outcomes of this program’s unique approach to design education.
