ID students exhibit design proposals

December 26, 2012   |  

The third-year students in the School of Interior Design hosted an exhibition of their proposed designs for an arts center and performance venue in Harlan County at Awesome, Inc. in Lexington, KY.

The exhibition featured the proposals for the conversion of an abandoned furniture store into an art and community center.  The center will include a performance space, gallery, coffee shop, three studio classrooms, as well as an apartment for visiting artists.  The students also provided designs for a series of plays and exhibitions set to occur throughout Harlan in October 2013. The studio explored programming and branding techniques designed to meet the needs of the community. Work on the Harlan art center is set to begin in the summer of 2013.
