The best student photo media and design projects from Kansas University’s Department of Design are being displayed this month on campus.
The Spring Salon Show, featuring photo media student work, is open through May 25 at SUA’s Kansas Union Gallery, inside the Kansas Union at 1301 Jayhawk Blvd. The juried show is organized by the Photo Media Advisory Board, a group of professionals who work with photo media students.
Industrial design thesis projects will be on display Thursday and Friday at Spooner Hall, with an open house from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Friday. The display features the final projects that 19 seniors have worked on since last fall under the direction of adjunct professor David Allen.
Among the design projects on display are a manipulative learning tool for teaching trigonometry, a redesigned wheelchair and an electric motorcycle tailored to the ergonometric needs of women.
