Junior BFA student concentrating in Graphic Design, Raeanne Nuzzo of New Haven, CT has received an IDEA Grant for a project that she is working on along side Professor Mary Banas, entitled Fear. The project is set to be shown in the Fall in the Visual Art Installation Space at the School of Fine Arts.
This is what Raeanne has to say about her project:
Fear: The Culture is an interactive poster design project, featuring the phrase “Something really dangerous is going on,” a quote from Donald Trump, paired with the hashtag “#FearTheCulture” printed over a variety of images from sensationalized media as a method to critique the American culture of fear. The posters will be hung publicly over the summer, and reactions will be documented and catalogued along with the original source materials, culminating in a complete documentation and exhibition of the work in VAIS Gallery in Fall 2016.
