Re-Imagined Events bring artifacts back to life

re-imaging-lampRe-Imagined Events, a series of events created by Nate Pyper '12, launched Gallery Night, Friday, October 17, as part of the student-curated Re-Imagining - Re-Imaging, on view in the Brooks Stevens Gallery.

All events are free and open to the public, located in MIAD's Brooks Stevens Gallery.

Products from the past are a hybrid of marketing, engineering and consumer culture that once contributed to the visual and functional nature. Re-Imagined Events unlock the past by bringing artifacts out of their sleep and back to life.
