Students and alumni from the Furniture Program exhibited dozens of pieces in downtown Toronto during Design Week (Jan. 21-27) in multiple venues. Editors from Design Lines Magazine visited all exhibitions mounted during Design Week, picking the best of the work on view. Twenty of the 100 pieces they singled out for praise were designed and made by Sheridan Furniture alumni and current students: a remarkable showing at an international design event.
Bachelor of Illustration professor Kathryn Chorney celebrated the opening of Battle of the Titans, a major new exhibit currently breaking attendance records at the Royal Botanical Gardens in Burlington. The unique exhibit places our two most familiar dinosaurs – T. rex and Triceratops – within the context of the ecological forces that shaped them and their world. The exhibit was created by Hall Train Studios Ltd, where Kathryn has been a longtime associate. Two Sheridan Illustration alumni and several Advanced Special Effects Makeup, Prosthetics, and Props alumni also worked on preparing the exhibit. Battle of the Titans runs at the RBG until April 7, at which point it will begin touring to other venues.
