Every rite of passage is accompanied by a mixture of fear and excitement for the future, a simultaneous cutting away and sewing together of character. This exhibition—presenting capstone projects from graduating students in the Design BFA program—is no different. For these young designers, No Longer, Not Yet points to a collective embrace of the transitory, as they consider what it means to be no-longer-students and not-yet-professionals.
The forty projects included in this exhibition serve as reflections of and responses to this unique moment in time, spanning the diverse range of skills the students have learned in the Design program and offering a glimpse at the kinds of work they aim to pursue after graduation. With No Longer, Not Yet, they invite you to stand upon the threshold with them—to look back, and to look forward.
