FIT Student Art on Display at SUNY Global Center in NYC

An exhibition of abstract paintings created by students attending one of the 64 colleges and universities of the State University of New York (SUNY) are on display at the SUNY Global Center, 116 East 55th Street, New York, through June 24. Included are eight works by FIT BFA majors.

The 64 campuses of SUNY are home to many talented artists whose work has flourished among our dedicated arts faculty and top-rated academic programs in the arts, said SUNY Chancellor Nancy L. Zimpher. Student art is on display throughout New York State on our campuses, at System Administration in Albany, in the Governors office in Washington, DC, and now at the Global Center in New York City, making it possible for all New Yorkers to enjoy these outstanding works.

The paintings were selected by a panel of SUNY professionals led by Jean Feinberg, assistant professor of Fine Arts, FIT, and Joe Scheer, professor of Print Media and co-director/founder of
The Institute for Electronic Arts, Alfred University College of Ceramics.

The FIT students and their work are:

Naomi Hirano, Layers
Marissa Mule, Contagious
Zhenwei Xie, Core
Victor Merriam, Untitled
Christina Hoffmeister, Untitled 1 and Untitled 2
Mario Cardoza, The Love Scars beneath My Hands
Ryan Smith, Lost in Transportation

A photo gallery of the collection can be viewed online on SUNY's Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10151626634579985.1073741826.142124764984&type=1&l=05fd86d04c.
