The Sue and Leon Genet Gallery at the School of Design presents Destination Outdoors, an exhibition featuring alumni from the school’s industrial and interaction design (IID) program. The school will host participating alumni designers for a symposium and a closing reception on Saturday, Oct. 19.
Destination Outdoors features the work of seven IID alumni: Rob Miller ’99, Simon JJ Park ’00, Lori Jacobs ’92, Talia Horner ’15, Yun Pei Hsiung ’10, Sean Horita ’96 and Glen Walter ’80. The exhibition celebrates innovative products and creative design work specifically geared for outdoor use. From lightweight bicycle frames to portable grills and high-end climbing gear to cutting-edge audio, these alumni have made their mark in the expanding landscape of outdoor design, illustrating themes of environmentalism, activism and sustainability.
Destination Outdoors was organized by Don Carr, professor and program coordinator of IID and the M.F.A. in design, and Andrew Saluti, assistant professor and program coordinator of museum studies.
