Holiday Mystique in Midtown: Visual Merchandising Students Create Display for the Garment District Space for Public Art
December 17, 2014
The students in Professor Marjorie Lee Woo’s Visual Presentation class recently unveiled “Holiday Disguise” – a stunning window display they created for the Garment District Space for Public Art (215 West 38th St.).
Their concept was inspired by Venice's Carnivale, where participants don masks and costumes to add allure and mystique to the occasion. In the scene, a hostess is decked out in a one-of-a-kind mask to complement her jewel-toned gown. Her holiday tree is adorned with a variety of artfully rendered papier mâché masks and gifts, creating the perfect environment for an evening of fun.
The students who worked on the display are: Carla Alves, Ean Boykin, Carly Campbell, Jennifer Cohen, Danielle Delavan, Carol-Josephine Fernicola, Allison King, Alexis Lostritto-Udell, Angela Maffia, Erica Pizza, Chadai Reed-Smith, and Irene Yosifove.
The Garment District Space for Public Art showcases and promotes the diverse artistic and design talent located in New York’s Garment District. The program affords individuals and groups the opportunity to utilize a variety of non-traditional art spaces on the ground floor level in the heart of midtown Manhattan, for installations featuring their creative talents in an ongoing dialogue with the endless number of pedestrians.
