The work of FIT alumni and faculty takes center stage in the 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 highlight the potential for promoting connection, community, and wellbeing through creating textiles. These works explore the potential for art to promote connection with ourselves and others and how the tactility of textiles can provide balance to time spent in the digital realm.
