Graphic Design in the Community - The Music is Art Festival
Sep 30, 2012
Professor Carol Fillip had some enthusiastic assistance from Professor Lorrie Frear and a hard-working team of RIT Honors Program students at the Music is Art Festival on Festival on September 15, 2012 in Buffalo. The RIT crew was on hand to help younger festival attendees decorate hats donated by New Era Cap Company, create magic wands from real drumsticks and have their faces painted by the RIT crew. They also led several energetic parades around the festival site during the one-day event.
