November 17, 2011 – March 03, 2012
Curated by: Emily Pilloton and Matthew Miller
As founder and director of Project H Design, Emily Pilloton exemplifies an emerging generation of designers who believe that design has the power to positively change the world, but that new strategies are required to effect those changes. This exhibition asks viewers to reflect on how that process can teach the next generation of designers to transform the world for themselves. Artifacts from Studio H, the project in rural Bertie County, North Carolina where Pilloton and partner Matthew Miller teach design thinking to high-school students, will be on display to illustrate how a socially engaged design process can result in significant and positive solutions. Together, Pilloton and Miller engage in a bold experiment of design-led community transformation.
