  • The Museum at the Fashion Institute of Technology 227 West 27th Street New York, NY, 10001 United States (map)

September 19 2017 6:00pm

The Museum at The Fashion Institute of Technology.

The work of FIT students and faculty takes center stage in the Gallery FIT exhibition Crafting Change. Organized by the textile/surface design department in conjunction with New York Textile Month, the works featured in Crafting Change use long-established techniques in a modern context to explore the shifting boundaries between art, design, and technology. Projects bridging science and textiles have the potential to revolutionize the fashion and textile industries, leading us to a more sustainable future. These works are promising examples of how FIT is successfully encouraging interdisciplinary mergers between craft, technology, and sustainability to usher textile arts into the 21st century.
